James Bernard "Jim" Murray passed away Monday morning at the Bee Hive Homes in Butte.  He was born in Butte September 20, 1927 to Kieran James and Margaret (Connelly) Murray.  He was raised in Butte,  attended Sacred Heart Grade School and graduated from Boy's Central in 1945.  He served in the US Navy in 1945 and 1946 and was then inducted into the US Army where he served from 1950 to 1952.  He worked in Anaconda for the Anaconda Company as a 1st Class Stationary Engineer for twelve years then moved to Butte where he worked in the Berkley Pit as a maintenance supervisor for ARCO until his retirement in 1983.  
Always willing to assist anyone in need and ready with a candid and optional opinion, his spontaneous witticisms in song and verse brought many a smile to his family and friends.
Jim married Beverly Pilon on February 20, 1954 and they were happily married for 62 years.  They lived in Anaconda for twelve years before moving to Butte in 1966. 
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his great-aunt, Barbara Keane who raised him after the death of his parents and his son-in-law, Steve Reynolds.
Besides his wife, Beverly, Jim is survived by his daughter, Karen Reynolds and sons and daughters-in-law, Gordon and Kathy Murray and Paul and Debra Murray.  Jim's grandchildren include: Jason and Ashley Reynolds, Xochil and Joseph Herrera, Ursula Quijano, Sean Murray, Kacey Murray and Trent Murray.  Jim was also blessed with seven great-grandchildren, Eli, Noah, Ava, Elliana, Arianna, Cain, and Wilder Charlotte.
Cremation has taken place.  Friends are asked to join with his family Thursday morning at 10 o'clock in St. Ann's Catholic Church where Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 o'clock.  Rite of Committal will be in Holy Cross Chapel Mausoleum and a reception will follow in Wayrynen-Richards Community Center.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Butte Food Bank or Our Lady of the Rockies.   
He touched many lived during his 89 years with a full life and will be greatly missed by all.   May he rest in peace and may his memory memorial be eternal.  Express condolences at www.wayrynen-richards.com.
