HEARN, Murray George , age 91, of Port Dover, Ontario, died Tuesday morning, November 27, 2018 surrounded by his family at Brantford Hospital.

For 35 years Murray worked at Stelco Steel in Hamilton and later in Nanticoke. His love for life was large and he was a true Canadian, visiting all capital cities. Murray loved to spend time with family and friends and if he could get them to fish, fly or sit around a campfire with him even better. He volunteered many years for Scouts Canada in Stoney Creek. He was a member of the Canadian Heritage War Plane Museum and the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association.
Dearly loved father to the late Christine Wedmid (Nick), John (Willa), Kathy Austen (Keith), Peter (Olenka), late Janie, Patricia Hamilton, George (Debbie) and Roberta Hunt (Kevin). He was loved and will be sadly missed by each of his 14 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and his nieces and nephews. He truly enjoyed his adventures with his partner, Diane James, over the past 6 years. A friend to Dar & Greg, Shannon Hall, Lynda & Shelly Manzer and David & Donna Manzer.
