TEMPEST, Murray Santo

May 9, 1926 – Calgary, Alberta
August 12, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Murray, our dear father and cherished friend. Always a ‘gentle man’, he never spoke an unkind word and lived each day with generosity and compassion. Murray was predeceased by Elaine, his loving wife of 64 years and his daughter, Barbara. He will be truly missed and forever loved by his remaining daughters, Brenda and Pat (Deryll).

The Tempest family would like to thank the healthcare teams at both the Foothills and Rockyview Hospitals. A special thank you to Dr. Casha, the surgical team and ICU staff.

We look forward to sharing memories of Murray with friends and family at an informal gathering on Sunday, September 15, 2019 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Bayshore Park (322, 2425 90th Ave. S.W. Calgary). Condolences may be forwarded through www.McInnisandHolloway.com.

In living memory of Murray Tempest, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive SW, Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  2. So sorry for your loss. He will be missed and his chair at coffee is empty. I will miss him at crib, coffee, socials and passing in the hall. He was a tower of strength, compassion and said what was on his mind.
