Coal baron Bob Murray Dead at 80

https://wtov9.com/news/local/bob-murray-dead-obituary



ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Oh. (WTOV) ó Ohio Valley coal giant Robert "Bob" Murray died at his St. Clairsville home on Sunday. He was 80.

A spokesperson for the Murray family told NEWS9's Gage Goulding that Murray was surrounded by his family when he passed in the early morning hours.

Murray had been battling ongoing health conditions for several years. In 2016, he was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a disease found frequently in coal miners. The spokesperson said Murray's passing was not related to the coronavirus pandemic.

In mid-September, Murray Energy emerged from bankruptcy under a new name, American Consolidated Natural Resources.

Just a month later on October 19, Murray announced his retirement from ACNR.

Doesn't sound like he had any last-minute/death bed "change of heart," either.

4. I'm suspecting that there will be

a good number of West Virginia families that will be anxious to know his burial site - they may have some "special gifts" to leave on his grave........

said a squirrel told him to buy coal mines?

Larger-than-life and highly litigious coal magnate Bob Murray has died. For many reporters on the energy beat, a threat of a lawsuit from Murray was a sort of rite of passage. (aThread)
