Lindal Loal Murray of Plano, TX, formerly of Muleshoe, TX, passed from this earthly life to be with his Lord on April 4, 2020 at the age of 91. His favorite ways to spend time were being with family and working with people.

Lindal was born in Stillwater, Oklahoma on March 13, 1929. He was the youngest of 7 siblings. He grew up on his family's farms around Carney, Oklahoma. He attended school in Carney and Chandler. He married Betty Jean Osborn in 1947 and they began their married life by moving to Texas. They were married for 59 years before her passing.  Lindal started working for C.R.

He always had season tickets to watch the Muleshoe Mules play football, and he also enjoyed the hobbies of flying and taking his family to the lake for adventures in water skiing!

Lindal and Betty moved to Odessa, TX in 1979 for a brief stint in the oil and gas industry. Then, in 1986 he received his Real Estate License and they moved to the Dallas area where he managed real estate and later sold residential, then commercial real estate with Century 21.

I only spent a matter of minutes with Lindal at a couple of family events, so I didn't know him. But I KNOW and love his daugther Susan. She became family when she married my best friend and cousin, Mack. Lindal's legacy of unwavering faith in God, serving others, integrity, strong work ethic and deep devotion to family continues! Well done, Lindal!
Janis Greeno, April 14, 2020 Our thoughts and prayers are with Lindal’s precious family. He will be greatly missed. I was fortunate enough to grow up and spend many, many evenings at the Murray home. It was so much fun, enlightening and quite entertaining! I wouldn’t trade a minute of time with Lindal or Betty. Love you all! Zac and Jan Rinard, April 14, 2020 I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure he will be greatly missed. It was nice to view the video and see a few pictures of my grandmother (Fern Lyons). I know the siblings always had a great time together. Kelly Dale, April 14, 2020 We will always have a special place in our heart for Lindal. He and Betty were my Plano grandparents! May he Rest In Peace in the Kingdom of Heaven. Love always,
Matthew, Sarah, & Harper Hall, April 14, 2020 Wonderful pictures, looked at them twice. Brought tears at the picture of Mother, Ava, Wilma and Lindal when they came to see Mother. It was a fun day, and it was the last time they we were all together. Mother loved Lindal, she thought he was so funny--and he was. Thanks for the memories. Love to all of you.
