July 12, 1946 – October 21, 2018
It is with a profound sense of loss that we mourn the sudden passing of our Husband, Father, Brother, Uncle and Friend, Murray Luck. Murray spent his early and school years in Montreal, attending, St. Malachy’s School, Marymount High School and later Loyola College. He moved to the Kootenays in 1979 with his spouse, Judy, where he lived for the following 39 years in the place of his dreams outside of Nelson at Hall Siding.
Murray attended the Mining School in Rossland where he received certification as a heavy-duty equipment operator and subsequently worked for Joe Ross Industries doing brush cutting and winter plowing. From 1984 to 1989 he filled several positions at Whitewater Ski Hill including Cat and Lift Mechanic and Outside Operations Supervisor. In 1989 he obtained the position of Toolroom Attendant at Selkirk College in Rosemont and maintained that post, as well as providing on-site Industrial First Aid, until his retirement in 2006.
Murray’s homestead was his passion and he painstakingly renovated the old house on his property into a modest but well-crafted gem. He enjoyed many camping trips over the years with his family. He also loved the mountains and spent many hours over the years exploring the various trails in and around the area, usually in the company of his dog and often his wife, Judy.
Murray has been predeceased by his parents, Paul and Julie Luck of Pointe Claire, Montreal. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Judy Sadoway, son Matthew, brother Alan, nephews, Philippe and Daniel and niece, Emilie (Jeff) Caron.
The family wishes to thank the paramedics and RCMP officers who attended the scene and gave emotional support.
There will be no funeral service, but a Celebration of Life will be held later in the spring at a date, time and place to be announced.
Dearest Murray; you weren’t finished, and we were not ready.
