William “Bill” E. Murd, 85, of Berkey, Ohio passed away Saturday, November 24, 2018 at Ebeid Hospice Center surrounded by his family. He was born on March 24, 1933 in Richfield Center, Ohio to William and Madelyn (Helfrich) Murd. Bill married Rita Storehalder on May 18, 1957, and they enjoyed 53 years together before her death in 2011.
Bill was a lifelong active member of St. Elizabeth and Holy Trinity Parish, the Joseph W. Diehn Post 468, and the Catholic War Veterans in Assumption, Ohio. He was a Korean War veteran serving in the 82nd Airborne division from 1953 until 1955. Bill worked for E.I. DuPont for 42 years, retiring in 1993. After retirement, he enjoyed volunteering at St. Anne’s hospital. In 2006, The Red Cross awarded him a certificate honoring his 116 pints of blood donated through the years. He took great pride in caring for the home he built in 1965 and lived there for over 53 years. However, his greatest pride was his family.
