Gordon Murray, (AP) – A former Wall Street financial executive Gordon Murray, co-author of the bestseller “The Answer investment” after ceasing treatment for terminal brain cancer, has died, her publicist said. He was 60.
Murray died at his home on Saturday, Burlingame, said publicist Jennifer Musico. He was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer in 2008.
After a recurrence of the disease last year, he refused any further treatment and began writing “The response of investment” with co-author and financial adviser Daniel Goldie.
The couple self-published primer on the financial investment in August, and it became a bestseller after an article about Murray in the New York Times in November.
The official website of the book describes it as a simple guide that will benefit individual investors, rather than the giants of the financial industry, which employed Murray for over 25 years.
A native of Baltimore, Murray rose from salesman at Goldman Sachs bond CEO of Lehman Brothers and Credit Suisse First Boston. He retired in 2001 and became a consultant for Dimensional Fund Advisors, an investment management firm.
“The response of investment” was acquired by Business Plus and will be published in hardcover, January 25.
In a statement released Monday, Business Plus editor Rick Wolff said Murray “the spirit of inspiration and legacy will live on in his book honest and frank.”
His wife, Randi, and his two sons, Ben and Sam, survive Murray
Before dying, Murray has requested that no memorial service or funeral will be held for him, Musico said. In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations be made to the UCSF Foundation, the Cal Parents Fund or the Cancer Foundation fibrolamellar.
