Obituary for Murray Van Oene

After a hard-fought battle and speaking with his family, Murray passed away on the evening of Friday, May 7, 2021 with his wife of over forty years by his side. He had recently turned 67.

Murray is survived by his loving wife Linda (nee Zettler), daughters Holly Walter of Listowel, and Ashley (Nigel) Cain and adored granddaughter Penelope of Hanover. Also survived by his sister Marion Neisen (Scott Robbins) of Owen Sound, sister in law Cheryl Van Oene of Walkerton, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Predeceased by his parents, Ken and Dorothy of Manitoba, and brothers Lorne (Shirley) and Cliff. Also predeceased by his son-in-law Ray Walter, brother-in-law Dave Neisen, parents-in-law William and Shirley Zettler, and many other family members.

Murray was a hard worker who took pride in his trade. He was a loyal member of the Plumbers, Welders and Steamfitters Local 527 for the past 47 years. He enjoyed hunting, and was a long standing member of the Swinging Bucks Hunt Club, as well as the Legion. In his earlier years, Murray was active in many leagues, including billiards, broomball, and baseball, where he earned the nickname “Slider”. He always loved spending time with family and friends at the cottage, trailer, garage, or around an open fire. Most recently he appreciated video calls with family and friends. He was fond of rock tunes, funny commercials, and always had a joke up his sleeve! He was quick-witted, and proud of his family until the end, holding especially close to his heart the time he spent with his granddaughter. Murray will be missed by many.

A small celebration of life for family and close friends will be held at a later date.

Due to the current restrictions on social gatherings, the family asks that you share a fond memory or condolences for Murray and family on the Cameron’s website at For anyone wishing to make a donation in Murray’s honour, please direct it to the Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce (PLEASE INDICATE IN NOTE TO CHARITY: SOUTH BUILD), to The Raymond Walter Memorial Fund that supports local projects, or as you see fit.
