Bill Murray has announced he will retire from Hope Now For Youth on December 31st, 2017. Bill has been an integral part of Hope Now since 2004.  When Bill came to Hope Now, he assisted the late John Raymond in placing young men into full-time jobs. During his 14 years on staff, he placed hundreds of young men in jobs and has been an encouragement and friend to our staff.

He was born in Mt. Clemens, MI, but grew up in Sanger and Fresno. Bill attended Sanger High School, Reedley Junior College (AA degree). He graduated from Fresno State with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminology. Bill has worked successfully for Frito-Lay, Nestle Foods, Western Valley Veterinary Supply, and Saturn, before coming on staff at Hope Now.

Bill will not be idle, rather than calling this stage in life retirement, he is looking at it as a “redeployment” into new opportunities. You may send congratulatory notes and cards to:



Mr. Bill Murray
