    Murray was a very smart and kind man. I will always cherish the 10 years we were married and the many years after our marriage when we were still close. I thank God I will see him again one day! My heart is broken but at peace. No words were left unsaid. I will always love the man he was to me. I am unable to attend his Celebration of Life service, as I now live in Iowa and just recently had 4 fusions in my back. However, I will be there in spirit and love.

    I am saddened to learn of my cousin Murray’s passing. I know that he was indeed loved by his family, especially by
    Aunt Virginia , Uncle John M. and his brother Steve. It is difficult to realize they have all passed away. I knew Murray more when he was a child. We spent time with his family when we visited from Kentucky. I have one striking memory of Murray. It was on one of those visits that I was the one, who broke it to Murray that his hero at time “Howdy Doody”, was a puppet. This revelation was very upsetting to Murray and I’ve sort of regretted it all these years.

    Rest in peace Murray, maybe “Howdy” is real after all.

    I met Murray on the banks of the Buffalo River where he earned his Indian name “2 loafers slipping'” by climbing a steep cliff to reach a cave in loafers, in the rain. His legs were a bloody mess, but we first got to experience his outstanding sense of humor. He was so funny and the King of one-liners but always very compassionate and insiteful. One of my friends that would talk NHL hockey with me. His faith in our Lord was always obvious in his life, his struggles and successes. He will be remembered forever by and as a “Buffalo Brother” and Christian.

    I met Murray through the Bates Family and we all went to Litton together. I thought Murray was so funny. After graduation as with most kids you go your separate ways, I lost track of Murray. After marriage, 2 kids and moving to some acreage we were given a red Irish Setter. I was still able to name the animals before the kids were old enough to take over that job. Since my dog was such a beautiful red, I named him “Murrayrose”. If you knew how much I love dogs, you would know that was a loving thing for me to do. So Murray since you are up there, look for Murrayrose and he will love you beyond measure. I’ll look you up someday my friend.

    I first got to know Murray at Litton there was a group of us that would meet at Shoney’s on Fri and Sat night after our dates were over for what we called it the Coffee Club. Several of us have remained close friends seeing each other often playing cards, going on road trips, football/basketball games, golfing, parties and of coarse the Litton Bash with many great stories and adventures. Of late we have been meeting each month for dinner Murray has always been a part of this many great memories over 50 years. Rest in Peace my friend

    Murrays smiling face and wit was a beautiful part of my youth. Go rest high on that mountain with our Lord Jesus Murray. I learned years ago your faith was strong. You will be missed. Until we meet again sweet Murray.

    I am so saddened about the loss of my cousin Murray. In “our growing up years”, we all spent lots of time together hanging out and playing together as our parents visited. We were together as family, usually weekly, as our mothers were sisters spending time with one another. Murray was always kind as a person and kind as a little guy growing up. Both Murray and his Brother Steve were funloving and “silly”. Always fun to be around. IIt has been sad to see his health fail in the last few years. I am thankful I got a chance to help here and there during his illnesses these past 3 years. I am so happy that he regained his strength to travel and play golf again this past year. God Bless His Sweet Heart. Murray you have completed the homecoming of the Uncle John M and Aunt Jenny ‘s family this past week. Heaven is sweeter today. Love you Cuz

    I was a part of Murray’s family many years ago as I was engaged to his brother, Steve. We were all very close and, of course, Murray was the “little brother”. We got along quite well and were always kidding each other. Even then, Murray was always smiling. I loved the Rose family and send my prayers for the extended family at this sad time. Rest in peace “little brother”.
