Milton H. Murray, 94


Milton H. Murray, 94, of Haverford, Pa., formerly of Bishopville, Md., passed away on Aug. 20, 2010, at the Westgate Nursing Home in Haverford, Pa.

Murray was a retired civilian employee of the U.S. Army, for which he worked in the Procurement Department as an accounting official, and he was also a U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War. He was very active in his church, and “Uncle Milton” was a very caring, generous and trusting man with a big heart, always willing to help anyone in need that he could. Forty years ago, he helped a young couple buy James Funeral Home, making it James & Watson Funeral Home; later it became Watson Funeral Home in Millsboro and continues to this day with a Watson undertaker practicing. This deed has helped thousands of Sussex Countians and others over the years, and he is greatly responsible for that.

Murray was preceded in death by his parents, Harvey and Addie Bunting Murray. He is survived by his cousins, Marion G. Irvine, Alex Irvine, Janice Dobrin and Harold; many friends, past and present, other cousins and extended family in Delaware.

Services was to be graveside, at the Bishopville Cemetery in Bishopville, Md., on Saturday, Aug. 28, 2010, at 1 p.m. Friends may call from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Watson Funeral Home; 211 S. Washington St.; Millsboro, Del.
