Russell Vincent McMurphy, Sr
Birth: Jul. 27, 1891
Colorado, USA
Death: Mar. 12, 1949
Arcadia
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Russell Vincent McMurphy Sr. was my Grandfather. He worked as a dispatcher for Shell Oil Co. He married my Grandmother, Madonna Louise Barngrover (How's that for a name?) in Indiana. My father Russell McMurphy Jr. was born in 1925 and his brother, (my uncle), Keith was born the year they all moved West to California in 1930.

My Grandfather was a veteran of WWI and fought in France.

My Dad said that Grandpa had committed long passages of Shakespeare to memory and could recite them easily. That always impressed my Dad.

He passed away from a heart attck after attending a wedding. He was only 57. His service was held at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA before being interred in Kokomo, Indiana.
