Murray was born on September 11, 1944 to Omar and Alena (Van Den Bussche) Mestdagh in St. Boniface, MB. He received his education in Glenboro and Holland Schools.

In 1971, with his partner, Clair Connelly, they started their own company, Connelly Signs and Services to which Murray was actively working for until his passing. This company became very successful and he enjoyed working here with his son, Trevor and Claire's son Sean. Murray enjoyed fishing, hunting, belgium bolling, camping and travelling to warmer climates in the winter with family and friends and making new friends along the way. One of Murray's greatest pleasures was sitting around a table or bon fire and reminiscing with family and friends and especially enjoying the company of his grandchildren.
