Colfax—Floyd O. Murray, 88 went to meet his Savior on Friday July 12, 2019 at the Hospice Home at High Point. He was born in Guilford County to the late Ernest Arnold and Cornelia “Polly” Jones Murray. He attended Pilgrim Bible College in Kernersville. Floyd owned and operated The Scriptural Press/Floyd Murray Printing and worked in the printing industry for over 60 + years. He and his wife Dot enjoyed camping, and their church family. Floyd was a veteran of the U.S. Army where he served during the Korean War. Floyd’s proudest accomplishment in life was being a High School and Middle School Sunday School Teacher. What made that role so special was that 60 years later almost all of his students are still actively involved in Church.
In addition to his parents Floyd was preceded in death by his brothers; Arnold, Silas, and William Murray and Sister Wonnie M Hase.
Floyd is survived by his wife of 64 years Dorotha H. “Dot” Murray of the home; one brother, Paul Murray and wife Gloria; one sister Linnie Murray- Rush and husband Jim of Greensboro; and a host of nieces and nephews.
