    • After growing up in Fremont he married Florence, and they moved to
      Rochester where they lived until 1930, upon removing to Hornell,NY.
      He took a job with Peck Motors in Hornell and was an auto mechanic
      ther for 14 years. In 1948 he established his own auto mechanic
      business, "Auto Specialized Service," retiring from his business in
      1967. During ownership of that business he employed his cousin,
      Charles Davis as well as Florence's nephew, Bernard Smith Sr., who he
      later sold the shop to. Bernard went inot partnership with his son,
      Bernard Jr, who currently (1995) is in partnership with his son,
      Bradley Smith. The business is now located in Arkport,NY and still
      carries the name that Murry gave to it. He was custodian at the
      Hornell Masonic Temple from 1967 to 1984. He was a past master of

      square dances in the Hornell/Big Creek area and many times at Demons
      Ponds Dance Hall in Howard. He would alos play his fiddle(violin)
      whenever he was asked. He was an avid golfer all his life and was
      known for his "straight shot, right down the middle". There is a tee
      maker for the 12th hole at Twin Hickory Golf Course in Hornell that
      has been named in his memory. In July, 1955 they began proceedings
      to adopt a then 3 moth old baby girl, Elizabeth Ann. Florence stayed
