    He was Pop to all our kids in the neighborhood. Always a smile, a joke and a wink. His joy was contagious. We are grateful to have known him. We are so sorry for your loss. Sending lots of love and big hugs to you all. Love, the Kastner Family

  • Mike and Mimi Murray

    It’s “Fair winds and following seas,” Captain Tom, as you pass the sunset, and see more of what we all have been promised. You were the best of brothers. You and Gerrie’s example and advice, as Mimi and I started our own married life made our lives easier. We are grateful to both of you. God speed, Tom…

    Dear Gerrie & Family,

    Our hearts are heavy for you but not for Tom. As his friends for nearly 50 yrs, we know you now have a wonderful advocate in heaven! The love he shared with all who knew him guarantees him a boisterous welcome–probably emceed by St. Peter himself! And, possibly, a pig roast!
    Tom’s kind of love never dies, it only lives on in all of you. May you be comforted by all the happy memories until you meet again.

    With Love & Prayers,
    Sue & Rick Sartor

  • Ted Czarnwcki

    So sorry to lose such a great man. But what a legacy he has made! One can only hope to make such a difference in the world. Peace and solace to the Murray clan.

    Thoughts and prayers for the entire Murray family. Tom Murray was a kind and gentle man. He has a beautiful family that he clearly loved dearly.

    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall fast upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

    Tom will be missed by all his shipmates from the many years of his service to our country. May he now rest peacefully in the arms of Christ.

  • Karen Stone

    Oh my! How I treasure the many memories I have of Tom and the entire Murray clan, over 40 years of them, starting in Royal Oak, MI. His Irishness was contagious, his sense of humor delightful, his love of his family something to be admired and enjoyed. I’m sure his loss will be felt deeply, but the stories have already begun and will be repeated and chuckled over again and again. Rest In Peace dear friend and please tell Maury hello.

  • Tom, Tanya and Taylor Molotky

    We are so sorry to hear of Mr. Murray’s passing. He was such a kind man. We pray you all find comfort knowing he is in the arms of Jesus. A wonderful family man and inspiration to all that knew him.

    CAPT Tom will remain in our hearts and souls forever though cherished memories. One of my favorite memories was when I took a “situation” to him as my Commanding Officer. He said, “I understand. And what is your proposed solution?” What a tremendous lesson and one I put to use often throughout my Navy and Teaching career. He was a supreme leader and very dear friend. Fair winds and following seas!
    CAPT Anna Mae Clark

  • Susan Weingart

    My love and prayers are with you at this time of sadness. Such a beautiful tribute for a truly great man. Tom was, indeed, a well-loved and respected man. I can picture him as Santa and what a perfect Old St Nick he would be with his charming smile and twinkle in his eye. Tom, Bernie, and Bob are certainly trading Navy stories and having quite the time reminiscing. Hugs to the entire Murray clan.
