Losses to the WU Family,

Updated: Apr 24


We regret to inform you of the passing of Larry Eugene “Moose” Murriel '74. Larry passed on Sunday April 5, 2020 due to complications from the Corona Virus, COVID-19. Larry was born June 22, 1952 in Inman, South Carolina to the late Raymond Clifton Murriel, Sr. and Masie C. Murriel. Larry graduated from White Plains High School (New York), where he played football (and was All County) in 1970. He graduated from Wilberforce University, where he pledged Kappa Alpha Psi and was a Business Major.  Larry worked in sales for years, which was really his forte. He had the gift of gab like none other. Larry retired in 2017, after twenty years of service for Southern Westchester BOCES, dedicated to the special needs students he served. Larry was preceded in death by both parents; one brother, Raymond Murriel; two sisters, Patricia Murriel and Doris Miller; and his parents-in-law, Julia and the Reverend J. Metz Rollins Jr.  He is survived by his wife, Cecelia Rose Rollins-Murriel; four sons (his pride) Julian A. Murriel, Ryan L. Murriel, Dwayne Ware and Keith Walker; his amazing granddaughters, Teryna, Ania, Sydney, Nydia and Kyra; his two loving sisters, Sandra Murriel and Penny Leggett (Todd) and brother Eddie Murriel; his brother-in-law, Joseph M. Rollins,111; nieces, Tiffany Murriel, Bria Smith (Brent), Bailey Rollins and nephews, Tyme Murriel and Andrew Rollins; and a host of cousins, great-nieces and -nephews. A Service of Worship and Witness to the Resurrection Celebrating his Life will be held Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 7 pm at Chatterton Hill United Church of Christ, White Plains, New York. Mrs. Rollins-Murriel can be contacted at cheriqueen@verizon.net.
