Patrick Michael Matthew Murray

December 19, 1942 to September 22, 2020


It is with loving memories we announce the peaceful passing of Patrick Michael Murray on September 22, 2020. Predeceased by his parents Elsie Anne Murray (Brien) and Patrick Joseph Murray of Portugal Cove. Leaving to mourn his daughters Nicole (Brett) Williams and Kathleen (Allan Locke) Murray and their mother Diane Murray. Also left to mourn, his grandchildren Abigail and Molly Williams and Emerson Locke, his siblings Brian (Marion) Murray, Michael (Susan) Murray, Elsie (Keith) Titterton and Sheilagh Murray. As well as nieces and nephews, Rebecca, Joshua, Evan, Timothy, and Cameron.

Pat is remembered for being civic minded. He played an active role in his community, serving as a member of the Lions Club and as both a councillor and the Mayor on the Portugal Cove Town Council. He participated as a representative in the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities. Pat was immensely proud of his hometown of Portugal Cove.

Pat enriched our lives with his love of learning. He approached the world with an open heart and open mind, being compassionate and helpful to his fellow man. He was fiercely loyal to his family and it was Patrick’s wish to be laid to rest amongst the many generations of Murray’s in the Holy Rosary Parish Cemetery in Portugal Cove.

Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation. The immediate family has chosen to gather in a celebration of Pat’s life. We will miss his wonderful laugh.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Patrick Murray’s memory may be made to Bridges to Hope.

Dianne and Family, Please accept my deepest sympathy. I was shocked to learn that Pat had passed away. I have wonderful memories of Pat as a coworker and a friend. What a head full of knowledge he had. It was only about a month ago, while I was visiting the Trinity area, that I thought that I saw him in a crowd and was truly disappointed that it wasn’t him. Rest In Peace my friend.
