Stevensville - Edgar Milton “Ed” McMurtry, also known as dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed away Saturday, December 26, 2020 due to complications from COVID-19. Dad was born July 28, 1936 in Hyannis, Nebraska to Iva and Harry McMurtry, the 3rd of 7 children. They moved to Littleton, CO when he was young. In 1956 he met the love of his life and they were married in October of 1957, just celebrating 63 years together. In 1971 Ed and Mary moved to Stevensville where they have resided ever since. Ed truly loved his mechanic work. After retirement, you could still find him out in his garage. Ed is survived by his wife, Mary, of the family home; his daughter, Deb McDonald (the late Bob McDonald) of Kalispell; son, Tim McMurtry of Stevensville; 2 grandsons, Bobby McDonald (Erin) of Colorado Springs, CO; Brandon McDonald (Keely) of Dutton, MT; 1 precious great-granddaughter, Maggie Louise McDonald. A celebration of Ed’s life will be held at a later date, maybe in June or July of 2021.
