Jim Murry Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away
Jim Murry Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Jim Murry.
Sharla and I are saddened to hear of the passing of long-time AFL-CIO leader Jim Murry. Jim, a legendary labor advocate and passionate champion for Montana workers, was never afraid to stand up for the little guy.
Our thoughts are with Jim’s friends and family during this difficult time.
Brother Jim Murry passed over to the great labor union in the sky today. Jim was literally a giant in the Montana Labor Movement. He served as Executive Secretary of the Montana AFL-CIO for 26 years and as COPE director before that. Jim also had a huge impact on my life. He hired me as Montana AFL-CIO staff twice.
This picture is from the 2016 Montana AFL-CIO Convention. It was the last convention that Jim was able to attend. I’m not sure what Jim, Rich Trumka and I were laughing about, but it was a good day. Jim and I did not always laugh together. We had some pretty heated discussions too. I will miss both the laughs and the disagreements.
Rest easy brother, we will take it from here.
More details have not been released about this death, and actual death age and date are yet to confirmed by us. We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
