Lionel James Murray Memorial Playground
Lionel James Murray, son of Matthew Murray and Kathleen Eagan Murray and brother to Calvin, passed away in his sleep in March 2017 at the age of 25 months. His death was categorized as SUDC, or Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood. Lionel spent nearly every day of his life at a playground in the Los Angeles area, where he met friends and shared his infectious joy for life.
To honor his memory, his family has chosen to rehabilitate a playground in an underserved neighborhood of Los Angeles, so that other children will have the opportunity to learn and play in a beautiful and safe place.
If you would like to help honor his memory, you can make a tax deductible donation to the Lionel James Murray Memorial Playground by clicking on this photo.
