Graveside Service

Maurice King, known as Murry to his friends, died September 24th, 2015 due to complications of a cerebral hemorrhage. Murry was born in Chester, Pennsylvania and spent his early life there. He served four years in the Marine Corps and later attended Columbia University in New York where he studied writing. He moved to Norfolk, Virginia where he practiced Real Estate. A gifted cook, he opened his own restaurant, Zita McCabe’s fulfilling a lifetime dream.
Murry will be warmly remembered and dearly missed by his friends for his love of animals, his prowess at Scrabble and his chocolate cheesecakes. But most of all, he will be remembered for his big heart, his boundless generosity and his tremendous sense of humor. When Murry laughed, he laughed with his entire body, and with such abandon and delight nobody could resist laughing with him, usually to the point of tears.
A graveside service to take place 1:00pm, November 24, 2015, in the Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, 5310 Milners Rd, Suffolk, Virginia with military honors. Altmeyer Funeral Home 5792 Greenwich Road, Virginia Beach is in charge of the arrangements. Condolences may be shared with the family at

My husband and I were friends of Murry fir many years. He helped us buy two houses, and we worked with him at Zita McCabe’s. We were even introduced to Monroe Duncan through Murry. He gave us a kitten that lived with us for 16 years. We lost track when Murry moved, and then we did, too. But we hold many dear memories of him, and will miss him.

I used to work with Murry in the Real Estate profession and was extremely fond of him and will never forget his infectious laughter and kindness.
