Ray Murray set an example for us all
The Tampa Bay area lost a great friend this week. For many years, Ray Murray and his wife Nancy quietly and intentionally showed us all what it means to have a giving spirit. They not only provided generous financial support to many organizations and causes they believed in, but also shared their time, expertise and caring –true examples of what it means to be a community steward and trustee.
Ray loved people and this community. He expressed his love by giving of himself so generously that he was an inspiration to all around him. We can best honor his legacy through how we care for one another – especially those in dire need.
Ray was deeply spiritual, consummately compassionate, a champion of the underdog, a steadfast believer in the goodness of humanity. We will miss his generous spirit, his insights and his friendship.
