It is with profound sadness that the family of William Brent Murray announces his peaceful passing on 24 March 2021 at the age of 63 years after a battle with cancer. 

Born August 19, 1957 in Red Deer, Alberta, Brent was a beloved husband, father, brother, and friend who left us far too soon. 

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Karen and three children: Matthew, Iain, and Michelle; brother, Larrie Murray; sister, Gaylene Benedictson, as well as his numerous other relatives and friends.  Brent was predeceased by his parents Richard & Marjorie Murray.

May he forever be in our hearts and minds.

A Celebration of his Life will be held at a later time.
