  Obituary for Donald J. Murd

Don Murd, 69, of Sylvania Township, fought a fierce and courageous battle with head and neck cancers over the last 20 years. Never complaining and always with a positive attitude, he inspired many. Don passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at Ebeid Hospice. Born on September 11, 1949, Don was the seventh and youngest child of Madelyn and William Murd, and the first sibling to be born in a hospital.
Don graduated from the former Metamora High School in 1967. He was proud to have served his country in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1969 to 1975 and received an honorary discharge.
Don retired due to health reasons in September 2014 from Fresenius Medical in Oregon, OH where he was a production supervisor. He was truly respected and liked by many of his peers and coworkers. It is evident in the stories we have heard and the friendships he kept through the years.
One of Don’s proudest and fondest memories is growing up on the family farm on Murd Road in Richfield Center, just west of Sylvania. Don loved telling stories of being raised in the country where he gained a good work ethic from his days on the farm.
Don will be remembered as a very caring, humble, and quiet guy who dearly loved his family. Don was a true inspiration to many battling cancer or other illnesses. When asked how he was feeling he would respond with “okay” and turn the conversation to the other person. We will miss his guidance and knowledge.
He is survived and already missed by his wife, Charlotte; son and daughter-in-law, Rich and Edie Murd; daughters, Kim Murd Brown and Amy Murd Eppard; grandchildren, Kristi (James) Schmenk, Andrew (Alissia) Eppard, Emily Eppard and Alec Murd; great-granddaughters, Rilynn and Sadie Schmenk and Sienna Eppard; sister, Bernadette (Ron – deceased) Inderrieden; brothers, Romaine, Bill (Rita – deceased), Jerome (Donna), and Father Frank Murd. Don was loved like a brother by his in-laws, Irene (Ron) Ruggles, Bob (Deb) Weaver, Rick (Linda) Weaver, Mary Flores, and Sue (Norm) Veres. Don had many dear nephews and nieces who are special to him.
Don was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Karl Murd; and dearly loved grandson, Derek Brown.
There are so many people to thank for their love and support through the years. We especially want to thank Dr. Kelly Emch and Lana Heintz, Nurse Navigator, for their wonderful care and compassion for getting Don through his tough times, especially the last five years. We will be forever grateful to you! We also want to thank Dr. Matt Spector from the University of Michigan Otolaryngology Department, and his nurse, Tammy for their care and compassion and giving us three and a half more years with Don. Lastly, we thank Don’s ProMedica Hospice nurse, Amy, and the love and care of the nurses and staff at Ebeid Hospice. We have been truly blessed.
Visitation will be held on Friday, November 9, 2018 at Walker Funeral Home, 5155 W Sylvania Avenue, Toledo, OH 43623 from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm. A funeral service will take place at the funeral home starting at 11:00 am on Saturday, November 10, 2018. Interment will follow at Toledo Memorial Park, Sylvania.
Donations suggested to ProMedica Ebeid Hospice Residence, 5340 Harroun Road, Sylvania, OH 43560 or the Otolaryngology Dept. at the University of Michigan (checks made to Regents of U of M), Gifts Department, 3003 S. State St., Suite 8022, Ann Arbor, MI 48109.
