April 10, 1935 – September 15, 2014

Born in Humboldt, SK, Murray passed away at the Central Okanagan Hospice House after a hard fought battle, at the age of 79 years. Murray enlisted in the RCAF in Vancouver, BC in 1953. His Air Force career took him overseas and all throughout Canada. He was stationed at various RCAF bases including New Brunswick, Metz, France, St. Denis QC, Chibougamau, QC, Falconbridge, ON, Kamloops, BC, and Penhold AB. He left Penhold after his RCAF retirement and moved back to Kamloops where he had a successful career in the sales field. His next move brought him to Peachland, where he was the Bylaw Enforcement Officer for many years. Full retirement allowed him to focus his time on activities like curling, golfing, and enjoying many good times with friends and family. Murray was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Peachland Branch #69 and Ponderosa Golf Club. Sadly, he was predeceased by his parents Paul and Bernadine Hoenmans. He is survived by his wife Shannon, his daughter Wanda (Terry), his son Michael (Lori) and grandchildren Cody and Alyssa. He will also be missed by his siblings; Paul (Judith), Marge (Allan), Joan (Mark) numerous nieces and nephews and by many, many close friends. A Celebration of Life will take place 5:00 P.M., Saturday, October 11, 2014 at the 55+ Activity Center in Peachland, BC. Donations in memory of Murray can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
