Rick and I send our condolences to the Wright family during this difficult time. Our memories of Murray are during the old hockey days when he played and coached here in Norwich. He was a devoted husband and father ,hard worker and has left us way to early in life but now he will be with Betty and others who have gone before him whom he loved.

Fond memories of many great card games at the Wright household in Norwich in the 60s with John General , Murray, Diane, Ginnie and Ken . Cups of instant coffee and lots of laughs at Murray and Betty- Lou's. I was with Murf in St Marys Ontario when i met my wife Shirley, so i will always be grateful for allowing me to tag along with him that day. Day trips in his thunderbird in the 60s. Teen Town dances at the Legion with Murf and the crew. I will always remember Murray as a true friend who always had my back. He was a great father and coach who spent endless hours at sporting events with his boys while they were growing up to make sure they developed into respectful and honest men. Murray was a special husband and a great match for Betty-Lou as they always seemed to compliment each other in so many ways.
I will always cherish the great times we had together in Norwich and Springford . Your smile was always a window reflecting what a special person you were Murray. A proud , honest and respectful father and husband. You will be missed .
My condolences to Scott, Steve, Eric and Tom, Lynn and Brad.
