Born in Baddeck Forks, Cape Bre­ton, on March 26th, 1925; he was a son of the late David Murray and Catherine Isabel (Buchanan) Garland. Predeceased by his brothers, John and Robert; sisters, Ethel, Isabel, Mabel, and Catherine; son, George, and grand­daughter, Sarah.

After many years on the farm, he moved his family to Hantsport where he worked various jobs. His last job was Minas Basin Pulp and Power where he retired with 28 years ser­vice as a carpenter. After retiring, he continued using his carpentry skills and other talents helping family and friends with various projects, includ­ing new homes for his sons; he al­ways had a pencil and tape measure in his pocket.
