From Edward Vaillancourt:

Just received a message from a member of the family that Murray Floyd has gone to the advance party on 29 Jan 2021.  Murray was a true family man, a very good neighbour, and a model as a veteran RCASC soldier.  RIP my good old friend.

From Mel Brooks:

I replaced Murray in 1965 in 56TPT Mov Con about April time.  I saw him last at a RCASC reunion in Kingston several years ago.  At that time, he was the same jovial fella. Another one to be missed.
