William (Bill, Bob Bob) King Murray, 56, of Wilmington, DE passed away on Saturday, May 26th.
Bill, born in PA and raised in Wilmington, DE, was a loving and devoted son, father, brother, cousin, uncle, and above all else - a friend. He was preceded in death by his father, Horace E. Murray Jr, his Aunt Margaret (Peggy) Murray, his Uncle the Honorable William King, and his soulmate, Lynda Snellings. A graduate of John Dickinson High School, Bill was a self-employed plumber then spent many years dedicating his passion and love of life to being a full-time advocate for kidney disease, and organ & tissue donations with The Gift of Life, American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP), National Kidney Fund (NKF), and American Kidney Fund (AKF). His family finds solace in knowing that his beautiful blue eyes were gifted to two people in need.
