Blenheim Community Funeral Home
Wednesday August 14, 2015
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Murray Kenneth Drewery passed away at home on Sunday August 11, 2019. Born 64 years ago to Jeanette (Little) and the late Raeburn Drewery, Murray leaves behind the love of his life Rita (Gillier) who he married 45 years ago, his son Kenneth, his daughter Lisa (Kyle George), his grandsons Tucker and Avery, his brother David and his children. He was predeceased by his sister June Drew.

Murray will also be fondly remembered by his sisters in law Joanne Van Praet, Lynda Radamaker, Margaret Parker (Tim), Helen Zsiros, Ruth Ann Buis (Bob), Teresa Owen (Rob), Phyllis Vogler (Terry) and his brother in law Harold Gillier (Jill), and many nieces and nephews.

It should seem easy to sit down and make a list of all the things that someone did and loved in life, but in Murray’s case it would be easier to make a list of the things he didn’t do and love because he did it all and he enjoyed doing it all. From trips to Bob-Lo or Cedar Point to boating, driving his bronco or jeep, to snowmobiling,  fishing and hunting, to fixing cars and spending time at the cottage in Rondeau or the various trips to Manitoulin Island, Murray lived.  He enjoyed his pond in his backyard along with watching the birds, or simply watching his favorite game shows, old shows or star trek.

He was a hard worker and cared for many through his life, with an open house and heart to many. He will be missed so much by his family and of course his dogs (even if they did chew everything in his wallet).

The most important thing to Murray was making memories , living life and spending time with those who were close to him. To that end, his family will be remembering him privately. Friends are invited to the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Wednesday night from 7 – 9 p.m.  Cremation will follow. To those of you who would like to honour Murrays life…let yourself live, laugh and love. Get out there and have some fun!
