Dennis A. Murray, 60, of Orange, beloved husband of Beth (Maurer) Murray, passed away on August 30, 2022.  Born on May 3, 1962 in Bridgeport, CT, he was the son of Mary Jane (McManus) Murray and the late William Murray.

He was a graduate of Milford High School.  He worked at, and later became part owner of, Maurer Metalcraft, Inc. and Valley Tool & Mfg., Inc., and retired in December of 2016.  He loved working in the manufacturing field and often said he was luckier than most because he was able to do something he loved and excelled at it.  Dennis enjoyed gardening, a love that was passed down from his father, and recently found a new interest in wood working.  His greatest love, however, were his kids and grandkids.

Dennis is survived by six children in his blended family:  Dennis T. Murray and wife Natalie, Lauren (Murray) Wlodarski and husband Mathew, Courtney Murray, Amber (Mason) Hickey and husband James, Alyssa Cretella and fiancé Robert Callahan, and Stephen Cretella.  He is also survived by his eight grandchildren that were his entire world:  Anneliese, Emma, Greyson, Charlie, James, Brogan, Violet and Jack.  Dennis is survived by five siblings, Karen (Murray) Nemeth and husband Donald, William Murray Jr and wife Dawn, Michael Murray and wife Lauren, Colleen Zacarelli (Murray) and husband Wayne, Kathleen Kilian (Murray) and husband Craig.  He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Arrangements were in the capable hands of the Cody-White Funeral Home, 107 Broad St., Milford, CT. A Funeral Service took place on September 6th at the funeral home.  Interment was private.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association at  To leave online condolences, please visit our website at
