It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to share that Murray, my loving husband of 57 years, passed away early in the morning on Thursday, July 21, at the age of 90. His children, Laura (Jeremy), Allen (Tresha), Joe, and Kari (Elna), his American grandchildren, Emma, Leanne, Lacey, Audrey, and Micah, his Faroese grandchildren and his numerous great grandchildren miss him already. We are treasuring our happy memories and are grateful Grandpa will no longer be suffering.
Murray grew up in the heart of New York City. Born in the heart of the depression, he helped his parents run the family news stand.
Later, as a young adult he took a job on Wall Street where he learned sound investment strategies that became a second job and hobby for him. Not feeling ready for college, he enlisted in the Navy at the age of 19. After, and with the help of the GI Bill, he got his higher education and then started his life-long career as an Electrical Engineer. He met his wife, Elaine, on the volleyball court in a resort in Lake George, NY. Just 3 months later, they were engaged and started their life together.
Murray enjoyed all the time he spent with his children and then his grandchildren. He played tennis and then pickleball till the end, amazing everyone that he could still play effectively at his age. He was always good natured, good hearted, and happy. We are honored to be celebrating his life.
With so many of you far and wide, and Covid still making large gatherings challenging, we are SO grateful we live in a time that you can join us for the funeral in person or via the youtube link below, and Shiva on Zoom.
