It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected death of Murray
Alan Trentham of Morrin, AB, beloved brother of Dick (Marg) Trentham
and Laura (Mike) Jarvis who passed away peacefully on Jan. 14, 2019 at
the age of 68 years.
Murray was the son of the late Harold and Audrey Trentham of Morrin. AB.
He spent his entire 68 years living on the family farm. His passion in his
youth was his horses and he enjoyed working with the cattle, sheep and
his chickens. He spent 29 years producing and delivering eggs to local
customers, many of whom became his lifelong friends.
He traveled with some of his friends and neighbours throughout the years
to Expo 86, Disney Land and Eastern Canada to name a few. He also went on
several camping trips with his cousin Dave Trentham where they managed to
get into all sorts of shenanigans.
He was the equipment manager and water man for the Morrin Giants ball team
for several years, a job he was very proud to do and enjoyed very much.
He was also a member of the Morrin Lions Club from January 1995 until his
passing. He received the Melvin Jones Fellow Award for dedication to
Humanitarian Service, which is an award presented by Lions International
and named after the Lions founder.
He enjoyed multiple hours playing cards and pool at the Seniors Drop in
Centre in Morrin, and he loved attending and helping at Pizza Night in Rowley.
Likely his most valued times were spent with his 7 nephews and nieces,
Cory ( Dwayne), Shantel, Michelle (Dennis), Brad ( Robin), Richard
(Nicole), Audrey (Justin) & Vicki ( Dallis) watching them grow up and
attending hockey games and practices, as well as any other events they
were involved in.
He also leaves to mourn 12 great nephews and nieces, Caitlyn, (Andy)
Matthew, (Marinna), Nevin, Nolia, Emerson, Surray, Liam, Rhett, Jace,
Blake, Cole and Nola.
A memorial service was held at the Morrin Community Hall January 21, 2019.
With Pastor Skip MacArthur officiating.
