He was a past volunteer driver for the Commission on Aging. He enjoyed woodworking, welding, and working on his Oliver tractors. Murl and his dad built nearly all of the buildings on the home farm and there wasn't anything he couldn't fix. Murl enjoyed visiting with family and friends and always loved a good game of euchre. He was an avid fan of the Brewers, Badgers, and Packers. Murl liked to fish on the small streams in the area with a cane pole and take slow rides through the countryside looking at farms and the scenery.

Murl's wishes were to donate his body to science at the Department of Anatomy, The Medical School of U.W. - Madison for the benefit of others. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Murl's family would appreciate that memorials be directed to the Mineral Point Library fund, Rescue Squad, Fire Dept. and Care Center. Dad will be remembered for his great smile, gentle nature, working man's hands, love of reading, and always having a story/ joke to tell.
