B.Murray has been a friend for almost 70 years since he came to Leesburg. He was brilliant man and a great
sportsman. He was always so helpful in our LHS Class Reunions as our "Treasurer". I hope many of our classmates
will come on Feb 8 to say goodbye . We will miss you

My earliest memory of knowing Murray was in 1955. It was about the 10th grade. He invited me to go to his father's shop
on Highway 27 behind the Leesburg High School. He gave me a tour and explained all of the equipment and machines.
He was converting a single shot 22 rifle to use a clip. I was amazed at what he knew. We were friends from then on. I
especially remember in later years how much he did for our Class Reunions. "Class of '58" Leesburg High School.
