May 6th, 1937 - Friday, August 30th, 2019
Murray Nimchuk was born in Springfield, MB to Jenny and Peter Nimchuk. He was raised in Hazelridge, MB on the family farm. In his early 20s, he married his wife, Betty Koskie. They began their married life in Edmonton, AB, where their oldest daughter Cindy was born. A few years later they moved to Calgary, where their second daughter Audra was born. The family moved to Lethbridge for several years before settling back in Calgary. In their retirement years, Murray and Betty resided in Airdrie.
Family was always important to Murray, and he kept in close contact with his mom, brother, cousins, and other family members. He had a special place in his heart for his son-in-laws Randy (Cindy) and Mark (Audra). Murray felt truly blessed at the arrival of his grandsons, when he became "Gigi" to Ryan and Kevin Morrison.
Murray was a fantastic salesman, and worked for numerous companies in many different fields.
In his day, Murray enjoyed playing baseball and golf. Later TSN kept him busy with armchair supervising and football and hockey games, and golf tournaments. Murray had a talent for playing the guitar, and in his youth was part of a band called "The Western Canadians".
To say the least, Murray was definitely the life of the party! His sense of humour was legendary; he always had a joke or two to share. Murray made numerous friends wherever he went, and everyone always had a good laugh with him.
From the bottom of our souls, we would like to thank every one of you for being part of his journey.
In our hearts he will always stay, loved and remembered every day.
