Memorial service for James David Murphy will be held at 1:00 pm Saturday June 9, 2018 in the Hart Chapel with Bro. T.J. Scrapper officiating. Online condolences may be left at www.hartfuneralhome.net. Services entrusted to the care and direction of Hart Funeral Home of Stilwell.
James David Murphy the son of Arch and Bessie (Hughes) Murphy was born February 24, 1951 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and departed this life on June 1, 2018 in Stilwell, Oklahoma at the age of 67 years, 3 months and 8 days.
James enjoyed life and he loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. His family was his world and he loved them very much. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and going to car shows. He enjoyed being outdoors and especially just being a dad and Papa. James touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife Marjorie (Campbell) Murphy; and his siblings Haskell Murphy, Margaret Scrapper, Marie Rider, and Bessie Sue VanBibber.
He is survived by a loving family which includes his daughters Destanie Alberty and husband Jack of Bunch and Kari Ann Murphy and husband Jordan Hummingbird of Stilwell; and his grandchildren James Bryan Murphy “Bubbie”, Jordan Jaze Hummingbird “Choog”, Magi Marie Hummingbird “Sister”, Jason Alex Hummingbird “Little Dude” and Micah Murphy “Wookie”, and a very special daughter-in-law, Akiera and husband Mitch and their “Little Tribe”.
Words cannot express how much of an impact that Murph had on my life. He was a great example of a reliable co-worker and also as a trusted friend. 25 years of turning wrenches together has simply flown by. Thank you for always being there for me. I'll see you again one day, my dear friend.

I am very sorry for the loss of your loved one and offer my heartfelt sympathy. During times like this we need the kind of strength that only God can provide. He can heal our broken heart and give us peace to cope with our loss. (Psalm 147:3) May God give you that peace and strengthen you until the time comes when death is no more and you can see your loved one again. (Revelation 21:4)
