Founder of Paradise Friendly Home, Graves County Kentucky's only orphanage. The Home closed down in 1976, and all of the children were transferred to Potter's Home in Bowling Green, Ky. There was an attempt to reopen the Home by one of the former Home kids in the early 1980's, but the plans fell through. The remains of the home are still standing just down the highway from Mr. Murdock's grave. The main building burned in the late 1980's, but the boy's building and the old gym are still standing. Mr. Murdock is also known for the elaborate and unique Mausoleum in which he is buried. He and his wife are the only ones buried there. The caption on the Mausoleum reads: "Stop and see a roadmap to Heaven."
