Obituary

BOLTON: Al Murray, a longtime resident of Acton, MA and most recently of Bolton, passed away on Dec. 3, 2019. The son of the late Alfred F. Murray and Frances (Hoar) Murray, Al was born in Bellingham, MA and grew up in Lansdale, PA. He joined the Coast Guard in 1944 and served on the troop transport the USS Wakefield along with his father, a Navy Chaplin. Al and his family summered in East Machias, Maine, where he met his first wife, the late Nancy (Small) Murray.

Al was graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and worked as a creative director for TRW in Burlington. A talented commercial artist, Al also had a beautiful tenor voice that he lent to the West Acton Baptist Church, of which he was a longtime member. He also sang with a Concord barbershop quartet and the Acton Community Chorus, where he met his second wife, Ruth Ann (Gallagher) Murray.

Al was the quintessential gentleman, a man of deep faith known for his kindness, his gentleness, a wonderful sense of humor, and his overwhelming devotion to his family. He is survived by his wife, Ruth Ann, of Bolton, his daughter Lisa Murray, sons George Murray of Bolton, David Murray of Easton, Maine, Don “Mac” Murray of Rockland Maine, and Charles “Chip” Murray of Cazadero, California. He also leaves eight grandchildren, three of whom are the children of his late daughter Christy Murray: Lisa (Hill) Murphy of Rutland, Jesse Hill of Yarmouth, Maine, and Megan (O’Dowd) Thomas of Webster. He also leave granddaughters Nancy Kruszkowski of Ayer, MacKenzie Murray of Rockland, Maine, and grandsons Richard Kruszkowski of Madison, Wisconsin, George Murray of Ellsworth, Maine, and Miles Murray of Rockland, Maine, and two great-grandchildren, Ella and DJ Morse of Rutland. Al leaves a sister, Marilyn (Murray) Mahoney, of Montgomery, Texas, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends.

A celebration of life service will be held on Sat. Dec. 14 at 2:00 p.m. at First Parish Church of Stow and Acton, located at 353 Great Rd. in Stow. All are welcome.

Al was married to a very dear friend of mine, Ruth Ann Murray. The joy they brought to each other was visible each time you were in their presence.
They clearly loved each other so much and I, as many of their friends, always found it such a happy experience to spend time with them. Al will be missed by all of his wonderful family and friends, and especially by his loving wife, Ruth Ann.

My deepest condolences go out to Ruth and Al's beloved family. I met Al through through the Acton Community Chorus. He had such a wonderful sense of humor and was one of the kindest people I've met. I worked with him on projects as producer of the ACC and the best memory I have is working on building a tree out of carpet rolls at Hudson High
School for a concert. It was one of the most fun experiences because Al made it that way. We laughed a lot during what could have been a very stressful project and the tree turned out beautifully. Thank you Al for being such a wonderful human being and for your kindness and wonderful sense of humor. May you and Paul share some time together in paradise.
