Dan Mcmurray

Dan McMurray (March 24, 1942 – February 15, 2012)
Long time North Coast lightkeeper Dan McMurray passed away at his home in Wynndel, BC  on February 15, 2012 after a gallant struggle with lung cancer.
He was pre-deceased by his wife Valerie who also succumbed to cancer in March 2010.
They retired off Pine Island Lightstation to their garden paradise in Wynndel in 2003 and spent many long and happy hours working together producing pure & natural seed stock which they traded with like minded people around the world. Check out his blog here.
Dan will be sadly missed by his family and many friends both on and off the lights.
