It saddens me to learn of Murray's passing. He was a great person. Always a hero of mine.
Murray Rose and his family were far ahead of their time. I read "Faith, Love and Seaweed" not long ago. The book was first published more than 40 years ago, and the nutritional information described in it is only now becoming mainstream. The world has lost a great champion, but the legacy Murray and his family brought to sports and nutrition will live a long time.
Murray was my boyhood hero together with thousands of Aussie kids. The greatest swimmer of the modern era. Rest in peace Murray from all your friends and fellow members of Bondi Amateur Swimming Club.
Murray was the most unassuming and modest champion, and such an interesting person. I sometimes felt he did not know why he was so good compared to others. I was in Bondi Swimming Club and in the same Australian team as him at the 1962 Commonwealth Games. He just loved swimming, was always polite, modest, unassuming and kind to others - a thorough gentleman - a gentle man who will be missed. My deep sympathies to his wife Jodi and son Trevor.

May your Soul enJOY the journey thru Heaven's upon Heaven's upon Heaven's to the very presence + memory of God + Self + Love + LIGHT + return it to Us all every so quickly + eloquently :)
Murray's life exemplified his Rose Clan motto of: "Constant and True." He was a man of great character and one of the brightest and most inspiring soul's I have ever met. A true honor to call him "friend". Love and Light to his wife Jodi and son, Trevor. I am with you in spirit.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. In time your faith, friends and family will help you get through your sorrow
To the family: As you grieve of sadness may the "hearer of prayer" help you to endure this time of sorrow and grant you peace. My deepest condolences. (Psalms 65:2)
May the God of all comfort be with you in this time of grief, may all Murray's memories stay close to your heart! Psalms 46:1 Joanna
To the family and friends of Murray Rose,
May the God of all comfort strengthen you during this difficult time. Those who die God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes - Psalm 116:15.

I met Murray at Redleaf pool in our early days of training. Then again at the Olympics & the Masters Games. He was a very special person. My deepest sympathy to his family. Yvonne Mackellar
Australia and all the Olympic family has lost a legend and a gentleman. Though we met only the once, I still feel the warmth of that big handshake and that huge heart. God speed, Murray. Tony Moore (Fijian Olympian in Sydney)
Please accept my condolences and may you find comfort in the words of Philippians 4:6-7.
Knew Murray quite well while he was in Los Angeles. A true Gentleman in every sense of the word, a delightful conversationalist and impish sense of humor. Lost my own sister to leukemia. The world is diminished by his passing. What a truly fine man. Deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Jodi and all his mates. Goodbye Murray.

With deepest sympathy to the Rose family during your time of grief...Psalm 46:1...God is for us a refuge and strength, a help that is readily to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.
I am so sorry for your lost. May you and your family rely on God in this time if grief.
I met Murray through Masters Swimming in the late 1990's yet I looked up to him and John and Kevin from the 60's when I swam. Vale Murray - Ian McCallum.
