Maury was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved.

He is survived by his three sons, Tom, Jim and Bob, his daughter, Patty, his daughters-in-laws, Carol, Debbie, Doris and Lori, his grandchildren Michael, Tony, Kevin, Alison, Lauren and Austin, his great-grandchildren, Olivia, Emily and Gavin and his three nieces, Cindy, Susan and Kathy.
