Last week a Celebration of Life was held for Murray Mather who passed away last month following his ongoing battle with cancer. Murray started his career in the shipping industry in 1987 with North Pacific Shipping. Since then he worked as a shipping agent at Bulk Export Services, Pacific Northwest Ship & Cargo, and then finally at Colley West Shipping until he retired in June 2016. He loved being on the water, fishing, skiing, and hiking and spending time at his family cabin on Thormanby Island. Murray leaves behind his wife Kathy and two sons, Nicholas and Brandon.
