March 12, 1956 – May 22, 2016
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Rory Munro, loving husband of Shaun Dolman and devoted father of Michael, Sebastian and Isabella. Rory died peacefully at home in Vancouver with his family at his side after a hard-fought battle with cancer.
Rory lived life to the fullest; bringing energy and enthusiasm to everything he did, while inspiring all with his positive nature. He was a gifted athlete with a passion for rugby and skiing.
Graduating from UBC with a Bachelor of Commerce, he had a successful career in commercial real estate. Rory’s greatest joy was his family; whether it was attending their sporting events, listening to them play music, or spending time at their cottage in Point Roberts.
Rory faced his cancer diagnosis with great courage and optimism, living each day to the fullest.
The family is grateful to Dr. Max MacDonald, Dr. Metcalf, Dr. Donnellan, Dr. Sakaluk and the team at Nancy Chan Palliative Care Clinic, and the extraordinary nurses at Pacific Spirit Community Health Centre. Rory is survived by his mother, Joan Munro, and sisters, Marilyn and Pat.
A service will be held at the Canadian Memorial United Church and Centre for Peace, 1806 West 15th Avenue, Vancouver, on Saturday, June 25 at 2 p.m., followed by a reception at the Law Courts Inn.
