It is with great sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Murray “Rocket” Belanger in the Pontiac Community Hospital – Long Term on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 at the age of 81. Murray was the son of the late Eric Belanger and the late Gladys Pare. He is survived by his sisters; Faye and Susan and his brothers; Lee (Debbie), Perry (Connie) and Barry (late Melodie). Murray will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
“Rocket” as everyone knew him had a great love for dogs, including his special fur baby Duke. The family wishes to thank all those who were able to see past his gruff exterior and show kindness and love. Thank you to the staff of Long Term for the care and compassion given during his stay.
