Donald L. McMurrary


Donald L. McMurrary Jr., 67 of Carlinville, passed away Monday evening, July 25, 2022, at his residence.

Donald was born Dec. 15, 1954, in Springfield, a son of Donald L., Sr. and Marilyn L. McMurrary.  He married Mary Mullens Oct.18, 1977 in Hettick.

The simple pleasures of life brought great joy to Donnie. Whether it was playing with his grandchildren, spending time with his family, spending time with friends at the Moose, or enjoying the outdoors while fishing, mushroom, or ginseng hunting, he always had a smile on his face. He was quick to offer a helping hand to anyone he could and donated his fish cooking skills to the Moose for years.

He had a natural ability to find happiness in his daily activities and loved to joke around and laugh with all he spent time with.

Donald  is survived by his wife, Mary McMurray; mother, Marilyn L. McMurrary of Riverton; sons, Daniel McMurrary of Petersburg, Josh (Andrea) McMurrary of Wentzville, MO; sisters, Debbie (Bobby) McMurrary, Cheryl  Faugust, Jackie Betz, Nanci Bierman; brother, Tim McMurrary; several nieces and nephews.

Donald was preceded in death by his father, Donald L McMurrary, Sr.; daughter, Dawn Renee McMurrary and brother, David McMurrary.

There will be no services held. Memorials may be made to American Cancer Society or Moose Heart at the local Moose Club or at the funeral home.
