Mr. Murphy was raised in the Short Mountain area in a large family. He was a hard worker and his friends liked to kid him he could dig like a backhoe. When he was able he liked to go fishing. The thing he enjoyed most was sitting around with friends, talking, and having a good time. His friends in the Ivy Bluff Community would help him as his health began to fail. They tried to encourage him and be there for him all they could. His special friend was his dog, Roadie. He enjoyed having him always at his side.
