Joseph Michael Murray, 79, died Monday, May 15, 2017. He leaves his sons, Michael and Patrick, his daughter Michele, his daughter Melinda and her husband James Dorman, his beloved grandchildren Michael Murray, Amanda Dorman and his dearly missed Jessica, his sister Marjorie Medd as well as extended family and many close friends. Raised in Manhasset, New York, the son of Joseph and Florence (Domergue) Murray, he attended Texas Christian University and was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Mr. Murray moved to Florida in 1983 and found his slice of paradise in Tequesta. He was proud of his career in the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration field, and retired from E.V. Dunbar Company as a Vice President. Mr. Murray was a devout Catholic and served on the Knights of Columbus at St. Jude's Parish. He was a long-time member of Tequesta Country Club, and the only thing he loved more than boating or being on the water was being surrounded by his family and friends. Quick with a joke or a pithy saying, Mr. Murray always extended himself to anyone in need whether it be a kind word or a helping hand. He will be remembered for his warmth and charm, his strong will and spirit and the value he placed on a firm handshake. The family will receive friends from 4:00 – 7:00 pm Tuesday, May 23 at Taylor & Modeen Funeral Home. Mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00 Wednesday at St. Jude Catholic, 204 N. US 1, Tequesta, FL 33469. Interment will follow in Riverside Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy may consider contributions to The Knights of Columbus, Msgr. Reddy Council, # 6569, PO Box 4162, Tequesta, FL 33469.
