Obituary: Murray George Cobean – October 16, 2021

He is survived by his brother Bob, and his wife Lois; his sister Donna, and her husband Mike (Smith) of Saugeen Township.

Murray grew up on the family farm on the Gowanlock Sideroad and attended S.S. #7 and Port Elgin Public School and went on to graduate from Saugeen District Secondary School. After high school Murray started working at the Port Elgin arena and in 1979 he began a 27-year career with the LCBO where he was always a friendly, knowledgeable face.
