Murray Mifflin of Merlin passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Saturday November 6, 2021.  He leaves behind his children Dave Mifflin (Lou-Anne), Susan Walker (Murray), Diane Mifflin (Keith), Greg Mifflin and Jeff Mifflin (Carey), his grandchildren Paul (Melissa), Steve (Laura), Tanya (Matt), Jodi (Darren), Vicki (Aaron), Gary, Devyn, Ashlyn and many great-grandchildren.  He will be remembered by his daughter-in-law Brenda Mifflin.  He has gone on now to be reunited with his wife Esther, his sons Kevin and Mark, grandson Stewart and great grandson Emmett.

Murray was one of three children born to the late Hannah & Gordon Mifflin and is survived by his sister Geraldine Delyzer (late Pete) and his brother Jack Mifflin (Sandy).

There are three things that can sum up Murray’s life; his family, his farm and his faith.  He was a kind and caring man who left the world a better place than he found it.
