Murdock, James “Harry”

(1924 – 2006)


James “Harry” Murdock passed away peacefully at home on July 29th after a battle with cancer.

He will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by his wife of 61 years, Patience (Madelon); his children: Scott (Loreen), Bonita (Daniel), Sandra (Harry) and Ian (Margaret); his grandchildren: Tim (Corey), Heath (Cheryl), Amanda, Michael, Jeffrey, Josh (Jina), Conrad and Samantha; and his great-grandchildren: Zachary, Meaghan, Ryley and Sue Hei. Harry was predeceased by his son, Mickey and grandson, Curtis.

We wish to thank: the nurses and support workers of the Vancouver Island Health Authority Home Care, Marianne and Stan Fiendell, Ted Panos of the Hospice Society, the pharmacists in Courtenay and Comox, our many friends and extended family, and finally Dr. Crowe and his staff, all of whom played an essential role in allowing us to care for Harry in his home with love and dignity.

According to Harry’s wishes, there will be a private family ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to the BC Cancer Society.
