HAS is saddened to report the passing of HAS Board member Dr. John E. Murray, Jr., who has served the organization for nearly two years.
“John Murray served HAS with wise and strategic counsel,” said HAS Board Chair John Walton. “He will be greatly missed by our organization. We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Marj, and to his entire family.”
“Dr. Murray often spoke of his belief in the nobleness of our hospital’s work in Haiti,” recalled Director of Development Lenora Vesio. “HAS was fortunate that Dr. Murray, who had a long and distinguished career and who made an extraordinary impact on the people of Western Pennsylvania, also felt such compassion for those in need around the world.”
