Robert Jason Murray, age 42, passed away peacefully on Oct. 30, 2020, while at his mother’s home in Florida while surrounded by family and friends after a lifelong courageous battle.

Robert was born Oct. 16, 1978, in Monroe, the son of Robert Murray and Linda Vesely.

Robert never let his limitations discourage him, instead gave love, humor and courage to all he met. Robert will be remembered as a true gift.

Murray of Brodhead; a sister, Shelly (Nick) Brandt of Tampa Bay, Florida; nephews, Payton and Brook Brandt; a niece, Madison Brandt; grandparents, Gill (Darlene) Koch of Brodhead; seven stepbrothers; one stepsister; and many aunts, uncles and other relatives and friends.
