John Murray, age 71 of Sharon Hill, passed away on July 3, 2020.
John graduated from Sharon Hill High School. He worked as a plasterer for Local 8 for over 40 years before his retirement. He enjoyed exercising at the Ridley YMCA and was a life-long parishioner of Holy Spirit Church until recently when he became a parishioner at St. George's Catholic Church. He loved all animals, especially dogs and rabbits, and enjoyed listening to music. John was a hard worker, kind, generous, genuine, caring, loving, and funny. He was loyal to his family and always provided for his wife of 38 years and 5 children. He was selfless, down to his last day, when he donated many of his organs in order to save the lives of many.
He is predeceased by his parents Albert and Rita Murray, and sister Patricia (Robert) Brotzman
