“Mick McMurry touched so many lives and succeeded in so many ways – as a devoted family man, a businessman, a philanthropist. After graduating from UW and serving in Vietnam, Mick returned home to Casper and, year after year, did one extraordinary thing after another. Whatever he was involved in – whether it was building a construction business, forming energy businesses, or contributing to community causes through the McMurry Foundation – he gave his all and that was giving a lot. He was wholeheartedly committed to his family, community, state and country. He often said to me, “I just want to build a better Wyoming,” and those words will stay with me forever. Mick did in fact build a better Wyoming. Carol and I were deeply saddened to hear of his passing. There’s no one like Mick – he was Wyoming through and through. We grieve for him and will miss him greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Susie and the entire McMurry family,” Governor Mead said.
