BAR HARBOR — Joe Murray, age 85, passed away Oct. 20, 2014, in Newburgh, Ind. He graduated from Bar Harbor High School in 1947 and spent the night of Oct. 23 under Duck Brook Bridge with the fire going over his head and wondering if he would see his home again. He served four years in the Air Force during the Korean War as a staff sergeant.
He graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1956 as a mechanical engineer. Joe is survived by his wife, Joan, three children, seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and two sisters, Teresa Ferrari and Roslie Dorman, and sister-in-law, Norma Murray.
A memorial service will be held for Joe at the Duck Brook Bridge at 10 a.m. on June 16. Anyone interested is welcome to join us.
