Will Murray

Colleagues will be sorry to learn of the sudden death, on 8 June 2016, of Will Murray, a member of the Court since 2004.

Will was a member of the University Council from 2000 to 2008; during this period the Council itself and a range of committees – in particular the Audit and Risk Committee – benefited from his conscientious attention to detail, his insight and his empathetic humanity. He was appointed as a Trustee of the University of Leeds Pension and Assurance Scheme in October 2004, and enjoyed many a lively debate at Trustees’ meetings.

The funeral service will be held at 10.20am on Tuesday 28 June at Lawnswood Crematorium, Otley Road, Adel, Leeds LS16 8AA, followed by a celebration at Weetwood Hall Hotel (Lawnswood Room). 

The family have requested no flowers but are setting up a JustGiving fundraising page for the many charities Will supported, or worked for, and there will be a collection on the day.

Could anybody wishing to attend, please contact Helen Pickersgill (0113 3434036) in the Secretariat by 5.00 pm on Friday 24 June.

The flag on the Parkinson Building will be flown at half-mast on Tuesday 28 June in Will’s memory.
