Murray Gimby

Obituary of Murray Allan Gimby

In appreciation of his life, we announce the passing of Murray Allan Gimby on June 6, 2022, at Bobby’s Hospice.  Murray was born in Saint John, NB on July 24, 1944, to the late Jack and Laura Gimby. 


Murray was in the automotive field most of his working days and finished his career with an Irving Franchise before retirement.  South Oromocto Lake has been a very special place to him and his family.  Additionally, building a home in Wirral upon retirement was also very special to him.  He loved working with his antiques.


Murray is survived by his wife Lynda of 55 years; daughter, Stacey; son, Robert (Melissa) and two very special grandboys: Jack and Luke.  He’s been a great husband, father and grampie.


In addition to his parents, Murray is predeceased by his brother, Gordon; stepbrothers: Paul and Phil Gimby; sister-in-law, Susan Gimby; brother-in-law, Mike Law; mother and father-in-law: Ken and Grace McLeod; brother-in law, Royce McLeod.
