Condolences to the Murrell family

It is never easy to lose a young, vibrant member of the community—especially one who was dedicated to helping others.

The treachery of mountain roads and winter driving once again came back to haunt us with the tragic loss of Cranbrook firefighter Clayton Murrell and the severe injury of his wife, Joan (Sadly, Joan succumbed to her injuries this week as well).

Firefighters belong to a tight-knit fraternity and hold a special place in the hearts and minds of their community as they so often are the first on the scene of local tragedies, large and small.

I didn’t know Clayton Murrell, other than sharing a luncheon table with him at a past Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce event, but it is never easy to lose a young, vibrant member of the community—especially one who was dedicated professionally to helping and aiding others in distress.

Kootenay Business and Koocanusa Publications extend their deepest condolences to Clayton Murrell’s family, friends and the firefighting fraternity.
