Lloyd Charles McMurdy

January 22, 1927 - November 27, 2018

Lloyd Charles McMurdy COOPERSTOWN - Lloyd Charles McMurdy passed away Nov. 27, 2018, from metastatic multiple myeloma, following a couple years at Cooperstown Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing.
He was born Jan. 22, 1927, to Lillie Roth McMurdy and Ollie McMurdy.
In his youth he was active in 4-H and sports and graduated the top of his class in 1944 from Jefferson Central School.
In late 1944, he was stricken with polio, which affected the use of his right arm. With all the challenges he faced, he coped with a smile and never felt disabled.
In 1949, he graduated from Cornell University.
He joined GLF - which became Agway - in the accounting department and began pioneering its large frame computer system. He worked as the information technology manager for Agway Petroleum, retiring after 45 years to enjoy spending time with his family.
On Oct. 29, 1955, Lloyd married Mary Sue Hedman.
He was most noted as a gentleman. He was also a great provider, wonderful husband and father and loving grandfather.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Sue Hedman McMurdy; and a brother, Roy Arthur McMurdy.
Lloyd is survived by his daughters, Marjorie Anne McMurdy Struckle (David) and Cheryl Lee Kane (John); grandchildren Melissa Struckle and Danielle and Jeffery Kane; sister, Lillie McMurdy Koenig; brother-in-law, Edward Hedman; many nieces and nephews.

Margie and Family, we extend our deepest sympathy to you in the passing of Lloyd. Even though we didn't know your Dad real well, we knew him as a quiet, gentle person. We are thankful we had the privilege of meeting him at Bassett. Please know that you are in our daily thoughts and prayers. Cherish all the special memories you have of him.
