He was 92 years old.
Murray was born in the Bronx, N.Y., and made his way to Cleveland as an independent sales representative where he met his wife of 60 years, Marcia. Together, they raised their five children while enjoying travel, tennis and the company of good friends.
Murray, an avid story teller, will be remembered for his contagious sense of humor and his love of preparing, cooking and eating gourmet cuisine. He was most happy spending time with his family, dancing and listening to great music.
