It is with profound sadness, that we announce the sudden passing of Captain Clayton Murrell of Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services following a vehicle accident early Saturday morning near Irishman Creek.

Clayton’s partner Joan MacKinnon, our Aquatics Supervisor with Community Services at Western Financial Place was also in the accident and was airlifted to Kelowna for treatment of her injuries.

Clayton will be remembered for his kindness, as being a gentle soul and for his professionalism.

The entire City of Cranbrook family wishes to express our deepest condolences to the families, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.
