We are deeply saddened to share the news that our long-time colleague and friend, Carlyle Murray, P.Eng., PMP, passed away on May 8, 2021 after battling cancer, a heart attack and a stroke. News like this is difficult to process, and we are in touch with Carlyle’s family to offer our support.
Carlyle’s impact within Stantec, the City of Regina and industry was clear. Throughout his extensive career, he worked very hard to contribute in a meaningful way, as can be seen through a few of his career highlights:
- He contributed to the engineering industry for over 50 years, the “Gordie Howe of Engineering”
- He improved the City of Regina’s maintenance systems, including the winter maintenance program; he found efficiencies in their asphalt and concrete construction programs, and introduced Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) equipment into the municipal roadways fleet
- He was a very successful project engineer and project manager, having one of the best track records for keeping projects on budget and schedule. He had a long and distinguished career in engineering, and we were blessed to have him as part of our team.
Carlyle’s extensive consulting background made him a key partner in the planning and delivery of infrastructure projects in Saskatchewan and particularly with the Ministry of Highways. His role gave him the opportunity to engineer and manage a variety of projects ranging from roadway projects, including grading and surfacing, hydraulics and culverts, civil works, land development and special projects such as civil site designs for Federated Co-op. On March 9, 2021, Carlyle celebrated his 11th anniversary with Stantec.
Throughout his career, Carlyle prioritized having a positive impact on those around him, for the betterment of the community. He was engaged in many charitable endeavors both corporately and in his personal life. Whether it was Stantec social events, Stantec in the Community, Rotary Club, providing education to our youth through his foundation, supporting friends and family, heading to a Rider game or companionship with Carlyle’s Coyotes, Carlyle always put his community first and was a real pleasure to be around. In addition to his contributions to his communities, he was very active in ACEC-SK and the betterment of the consulting industry, providing much-needed knowledge, time and energy to improve and evolve our industry. Carlyle has made a positive impact on many of our communities, clients and careers, which will always be remembered.
Carlyle believed in education and providing opportunities for others. In 1993, he founded the Carlyle Murray Educational Foundation through The Regina Industrial Parks Rotary Club. This foundation is a registered charity and provides an annual post-secondary scholarship to a Regina area graduating Grade XII student.
