    My deepest sympathies for the loss of your dad Murray. I will cherish my memories of Murray racing at Hiawatha, as well when he came to Seaforth to shoe our horses a lot of laugh. Alway had a story to tell, we will miss you Murray rest in peace my friend until we meet again.

  10. We have been friends since High School. Many memories of Dances, dinners and visits with Murray and Edna over the years. Blessings to his family, he loved them very much.

  11. Our sincere condolences to the entire Hyatt family. Murray was a pretty unique person with a devilish chuckle! As a kid I remember his beautiful team of ponies in the Pet and Hobby parade. He loved his horses and horses in general. Pretty sure it was in his genes, lol, and he passed it along.
    If he came to trim your horses feet, plan on 1/2 a day because he also loved to “ catch up” on the latest “news”. I know dad always would seek out Murray at the track if he happened to be there to get the “hot barn tip” of the night!
    Murray will be fondly remembered and will be missed.

  12. To the Hyatt family: So sorry to hear of Murray’s passing. I knew Murray from his work as a Blacksmith and from my working at the racetrack. He was quite the character and I’m sure you have lots of great memories to cherish. Sincere Regards! Wilma Tichenoff

  13. So very sorry to hear of Murray’s passing. I count it a privilege to have worked with Murray, during my time at Dow. Murray was a no nonsense guy, who called it like it was. He loved his family and his interest in horses. Arlene got to know him throughout the years and loved his phone visits when he called to see how we were. Our thoughts are with the family at this time of sorrow.

  14. Worked with Murray at Dow Chemical in the Chlorine II plant. Many years ago. Most of us in our twenties and all proud union members. Murray would arrive and depart work in his coveralls and we would know if he had been around the horses! Haha A kind and quiet man. I wished I had visited with him down on 21.

  15. Ian and Shawn – Our thoughts are with you in the loss of your Dad. We have a lot of happy memories of him and his wry sense of humor. Keep the happy memories in heart.

  16. Murray worked with my late husband Gary many years ago at Dow. Murray was a true gentlemen and quite the character. I am so sorry for your loss.
    Janet Hardy
