Earl William Murphy, age 67, passed away in Edgewater, MD on December 7, 2019.
Born December 12, 1951 in Olney, MD, son of Clifton L. Murphy Sr. & Katherine (Duvall) Murphy. He lived in Gambrills, MD and worked as a welder at Eaton, Inc. until he stopped working in 2005 due to illness.
Earl was a family man first, worked hard, went to every practice and every game his kids had. Earl loved hunting, fast cars, motorcycles and camping. He taught these passions to his children, for in each of them, it is easy to see part of him lives on.
