Murray McAlister

I would like to pay tribute to  Murray McAlister,  who recently passed away. Murray’s life  was one  of dedication  and love for his family, his community of  the  Dandenong ranges  and his  career as  an educator.  He was  a student at  Monbulk  Primary  School  and  Upwey High School. He was a schoolboy champion athlete  and went  on to university to become a teacher.  He taught  at schools  in Upwey, Monbulk, Hallam and Nunawading before returning to Upwey High School, where he excelled as deputy principal and then principal. He was  always heavily  involved in his community. He was a keen supporter of his wife, Bev, in her musical pursuits.

I extend  my sincere condolences to Bev and their children, Andrew, Caroline and Kate,  their  grandchildren, Lauren, Maddison  and James, and  their  family and friends. It was a life well lived. Vale Murray McAlister.
