After a brief and private battle with cancer, Murray passed away peacefully at his home with Lori, and Matt on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at the age of 71. Loving husband and perfect partner of Lori (Gill) Wickham for 41 years. Proud father and best friend of his son, Matt. Fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Wilf Sr. and Keitha Wickham, his brother and golf buddy, Wilf Wickham, and big brother George Wickham. Quoted by his nephew, Nate Gill as “the best man I have ever known”.
Murray was an avid golfer and so enjoyed his forays with his golf buddies. He was blessed to enjoy many international travels since his retirement. Murray was kind, quietly generous, even tempered and patient to a fault.
Visitation will be held at Haskett Funeral Home, 223 Main Street, LUCAN on Friday from 2 – 4 and 6 – 8 PM, where Murray’s funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 27th at 11 AM. Cremation to follow with a private family interment Granton Cemetery at a later date.
Murray was passionate about those who struggled with food insecurity. Anything done with him in your heart to alleviate this in your community would be a blessing.
The family wishes to thank the Care Partners Palliative team, especially Joanne and Andrea for their dedication, care, and sincere compassion.
