In Memory of

Allen Murray

Silver Spring, MD

June 12, 1949 – January 3, 1999

My husband,Allen, died suddenly in an accident in our home. He was a swim coach who owned one of the biggest swim programs in Montgomery County. He worked as aquatics director at Montgomery College and they named the building where he worked after him when he died. He also owned several day camps over the years. His passion was working with kids and he was terrific at it. He could teach a rock to swim! Our daughter and son were both influenced by him and work with children in their adult lives. My husband was fun! Always surrounded by friends. Close to 1000 people came to his funeral-a dozen people told me was their best friend. I have had the privilege of being a speaker for ‘WRTC so I get to talk about him regularly keeping his memory alive. I’m so sorry that he didn’t get to meet his grandchildren.
