Condolences to the Family of Charles J. Murray


Charlie was my hero. In 1994, I was walking my dog and my two year old daughter when my dog went out about 20 yards on the ice at North Beach and fell into the freezing water. My dog was struggling to swim as there were huge ice chunks with water in between and my dog was going to drown. I asked Charlie( who was outside) to watch my daughter while I attempted to rescue my dog. Without hesitation, Charlie jumped into the freezing water , made it out to my dog and carried him to safety. I had never met Charlie but was overwhelmed with his selfless courage to help me, my dog and my daughter. He was an amazing man and I will always be thankful to him. I was sad when he moved away from the neighborhood. Rest in Peace Charlie
