Long time Labour Party stalwart Murdo MacMillan died this week – his funeral will be at St Peter’s Church on Friday 20th at 10am. Son of a seaman and ex-wharfie, rock-solid in his values, Murdo made a huge contribution behind the scenes to Labour’s successes over the best part of forty years. Adviser and friend to many hundreds, he will be missed by all those who worked with him.

    This guy was a true Legend and I dont say that flippantly. A very genuine very caring patient man. Truly cared about others and his country and was always the servant of others. God bless Murdo you deserve your rest my friend.

  2. Murdo was an utterly decent human being who lived his life in accordance with his political principles.  If there is a heaven I am sure Murdo will currently be involved in civilised negotiations with St Peter suggesting that rank and file angels deserve better reward for their work.

    Murdo was a man who believed, passionately, that the red flag should continue to fly high supported by high principles and sincere beliefs in social responsibility. He was on the front line during the anti-apartheid campaigns in the 80’s and out there campaigning for social justice at every other time.
    He will be sadly missed.

    If I wind up where Murdo is I will be well pleased to renew acquaintance.

    In memory of a loving father-in-law Murdo Macmillan (alias”My Kiwi Dad”), who invited me so warmly into the Macmillan family.

    My sympathy and thoughts are with you all, even though I could not be here today.

    With love and affection

    My condolences to Murdo McMillan’s family.

    He was a good, kind and considerate man, a caring gentleman, a committed worker for common people.

    He will be missed.
