Robert “Bob” Vincent Murray

Robert Vincent Murray, (Captain Bob), passed away peacefully on April 7, 2024, at the age of 80. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, he spent much of his life residing in Hingham, Massachusetts. Raised in Quincy Mass, Bob fondly spent his summers in Hull with his extended family where he gained his love of the ocean.

Captain Bob found solace and joy on the calm waters aboard his beloved boat, The Ginny M. His passion for boating was evident to all who knew him, and he cherished every moment spent navigating the water.

Professionally, Bob was a skilled blueprinter, but his talents extended far beyond his career. He had a natural gift for comedy, bringing laughter to those around him, and his magic tricks never failed to entertain. He was a skilled candymaker and delighted everyone with his sweet confections. In addition, he had a wonderful green thumb and took pride in cultivating beautiful gardens and his amazing koi pond and aquariums.

Bob was a dedicated provider for his family. He was a devoted husband to his wife, Virginia (Ginny) Murray, and loving father to Jennifer (Murray) Schmidt, Robert (Robie) Murray and Elizabeth (Murray) Weischedel. He found great joy in his four grandchildren Ella, Vivian, Ace and Violet. His presence will be deeply missed by his family and all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

In addition to his roles as a husband, father, and professional, Bob was a friend to countless people. His warmth, kindness, and generosity touched the lives of all who crossed his path, he was a safe harbor for many.

As Captain Bob sets sail on his final journey, may his memory continue to bring comfort and inspiration to those who loved him. He will be remembered fondly for his love of the sea, his humor, and his unwavering devotion to his family.

Fair winds and smooth sailing, Captain Bob. You will be dearly missed.
