Obituary

God was gathering a bouquet of His favorite flowers on Tuesday, August 14, 2019. He picked from His earthly garden a champion blooming rose with many ribbons and accolades, Golden Murphy II.

Golden was born on June 18, 1918, in Pittsburg, Texas, to the late Lela Austin Murphy and Golden Murphy. He went to school part-time in Pittsburg, Texas. He later joined the U.S. Army Air Force in 1942, and served until 1946. He fought in Okinawa as part of World War II. Golden moved to Fort Stockton, Texas, where he worked at Fort Stockton I.S.D. for 20-plus years. After retiring, he made his way back to Pittsburg, Texas, to be close to his children. He spent the rest of his time with relatives and enjoying life.

Golden married his wife, Mary L. Armour, in 1946. They had four children: Golden Murphy III, Dell A. Murphy, James H. Murphy, Raymond E. Murphy. His wife, and son Raymond Murphy, preceded him in death. He is also survived by a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Special thanks to daughters-in-law, Dinah and Dedra Murphy.
