Mossie Murphy Obituary, Death – Mossie Murphy of Pittsburgh has suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. He was born on January 28 in Logan, West Virginia to late Moss Wilson Murphy and Easter Marcum Murphy. Harvey Vance and Elsa Mae Trent Vance, Eugene Vaughn, James Murphy, and Frank Murphy Murphy, as well as his wife, Lois “Cookie” Murphy, passed away before him. His siblings Harvey Vance, Elsa Mae Trent Vance, Roy Vance, and Frank Murphy Murphy also died before him. In addition to his grandparents and parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife.
Mossie worked as a coal miner up until the point where he made the decision to retire 43 years later. He was a devout Christian with a deep commitment to the Victory Freewill Baptist Church in Mill Creek, where he served in an official capacity. He was someone who was easy to get along with, had a zest for talking, and was hardly ever seen in the company of someone they didn’t know. In addition to that, he took great pleasure in tending to the garden that he had. Because Mossie always seemed to be aware of what was going on, he was jokingly and endearingly referred to as the “Mayor of Godby Branch.”
This was due to the fact that Mossie never appeared to be caught off guard. Mossie was a devoted family man who not only cherished his biological family, which included his children and grandchildren, but also his church family. Within the church family, he played an active role and enthusiastically participated in a variety of activities and gatherings that were related to the church. He also cherished his children and grandchildren.
Among those who are still alive to honor and love his memory are his three children: Sharon Chafin of Fremont, Ohio, Randy Murphy of Lexington, Kentucky, and Shellie Barker (James) Barker of Chapmanville, West Virginia. They are also survived by his grandkids, Chanda Mendoza (Caesar), Justin Chafin (Misty), Brandy Hall (Jon), Jeremy Murphy (Theresa), Andrew Murphy (Kelsey), and Jordan Murphy. In addition, Mossie is left by a vast number of nieces and nephews, members of his extended family, members of his church family, and an uncountable number of friends and acquaintances. He will be greatly missed.
