Dad always had a sense of humour right up to and including the end. He was the toughest, kindest, fairest, and most compassionate person I knew.

Murray retired from the Charlotte County Hospital as the maintenance and boiler room supervisor, he, along with his team, literally were the backbone of the hospital, keeping it running day and night.
He was also a volunteer firefighter with Western Charlotte Fire Department for 44 years and provided back up for the 6 o’clock page. He was instrumental, along with a few others back in the day, to get the fire department started.
Murray was also a huge supporter of the Little Ridge Community Hall, especially the once a month potluck.

Jacques, step grandson, David Jacques Jr and his beloved Shih Tzu, Rascal, who was with him and content by his side as he passed away .He is also survived by step- daughters and their families, all living in Maine, as well as many cousins, (who were like brothers and sisters), many nieces and nephews and several great friends.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Kathy, infant brother, son, Ronald J. Pomeroy and four of his beloved Shih Tzu : Ben, Joy, Jake and Zippy, their ashes will be interred with Dad. Knowing the four of them would be with him, gave Dad much peace.
