Paying Respect To Bryan Murray

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Sun,

If Bryan Murray could have seen the crowd that gathered in his honour Thursday, he would have cracked a one-liner at his own expense, wondering why so many people were making such a fuss about him.

The former Ottawa Senators coach and general manager certainly would have been humbled by the celebration of his life at the Canadian Tire Centre.

As pictures from Murray’s life ran on video screens, a crowd of 2,000 heard tributes to his personal skills and teaching abilities, along with his deep love for family and his Shawville roots.

Murray left a lasting impression wherever he went. His final gift, of course, was his passionate push for colon cancer checkups, helping scores of others avoid the disease that resulted in his death on Aug. 12.
