Brother Murphree was proceeded in death by his wife Mildred Murphree, his parents Jesse Cleve and Etta Murphree, his brothers Curt Murphree and Jack Murphree, and a sister Elvie Brown. Brother Murphree went by several names, Daddy, Pops, Murph, Granddaddy, and Brother Landreth. He loved spending time outside where he worshipped his creator by planting, harvesting, observing nature, fishing, hunting, and enjoying peaceful nights with his loved ones. He had a voice and a laugh that his grandchildren found welcoming, safe, loving, and infectious. Never one to sit still for very long, Brother Murphree instilled a deep work ethic in his children as he worked long hours. He equally modeled the ability to have fun as he joked, teased, and played with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Above all, Brother Murphree loved Jesus and strove to love his family, friends, and others with that love. He pointed many to the arms of God and discipled them into spiritual growth as he continually grew in his relationship with our Lord himself. Brother Murphree has by now heard, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” He has entered his rest. Pallbearers: Justin Kirk, Jake McDonald, Jerod McDonald, Cade Wilkerson, Cody Wilkerson, Chase Wilkerson, Dalton Kennedy, Brandon Higgason, Jonah Higgason. Honorary Pallbearers: His Sunday School Class and Special Friends.
