Lee Murray had been Road Agent in New Boston for 16 years before moving to Andover in 2004. Lee moved to South Carolina in 2011, and died in September, 2012.
His New Boston employees have started a Lee Murray Memorial Fund to raise money to purchase a plaque to name one of the bridges Lee and his crew built in New Boston.
Lee was very proud of the work his crew had done in building the timber bridges in New Boston. The bridge on Lyndeborough Road didn’t have a name, and his employees felt dedicating it to Lee would be a way of honoring him.
For anyone wishing to contribute to the Lee Murray Memorial Fund, it has been set up at the TD Bank. Any TD Bank, including the two branches in Tilton, can accept a donation. People have to ask for the Lee Murray Memorial Fund. If there is any confusion, any TD Bank branch can call the TD Bank in New Boston, as the tellers there all know about it.
