“Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us. God Bless and Godspeed.
“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. Barbara Nicol
“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)
