Governor Mead Expresses Condolences For The Loss Of Mick McMurry

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Mead said of Mick McMurry this morning:

“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.
