Even though Murray has worked and lived away from his hometown of Sylvania, Ohio probably for the last three decades plus, he always managed to call all of his siblings when he had a slow day at work, or it was a holiday coming up. He was always ready for a good laugh. He loved his life with Bette and always spoke about their fantastic yard. They enjoyed grilling and spending time outside. We all loved you very much.
You will be missed Brother.

Shawn and I were so sad and shocked that Murray had passed away.
Murray was Bette's Clark Kent and Bette was Murray's Hot Lips Houlihan. Such a sweet couple and great neighbors. May Murray rest in peace.

Dear Betty and family, I was sad to hear of Murray’s passing. I remember the many days we worked together at Smurfit. He was a dedicated and hard worker. He was always willing to help me and his support was valuable to the entire atlanta office. He spoke fondly of your children and kept me posted on your trips to Braselton for Thanksgiving. I was proud to be one of his friends. Blessings to you and your family as we all cherish his memory. Greg yonchak.
