With great sorrow we announces the passing of Murwood MacDonald at the Anson General Hospital surrounded by his family on Sunday April 4th, 2021, at the age of 84. Beloved husband for 56 great years of Ruth (nee Tinney) MacDonald. He was the most patient man that anyone could ask for. Son of Elwood and Mabel (nee Ellis) MacDonald of Thornton, Ontario, step-son of late Stella MacDonald.  Brother of late Murray and Lorraine. Brother-in-law of Carol Daviau of Timmins, Mary Tinney of Nova-Scotia. Step brother-in-law of Helen (Carl) Cashmore. Loved by his many nephews, nieces and friends, he will be greatly missed. Also predeceased by his brothers and sisters in law Garnet, Beverley, Clayton (Norma), Hilliard (Ruth), Richard (Terry), Norman, Florence (Eddie), Paul, Carl (Trudy) and Peter (Dorothy).

Murwood was born in Toronto and lived in Kelso and Porquis. He was a transport driver for Star Transfer and Wilson Truck Lines and loved his job. He was known for keeping a clean truck. Camping was one of his great pleasures.

Graveside Service will be held in the 2021 summer at the Abitibi Cemetery where he will be laid to rest.

Memorial donations may be made to the Palliative Care Unit at Anson General Hospital and would be greatly appreciated

Special thanks to Dr. Chiang, nurses and staff. Murwood had the best of care. Thank you all!
