James William Murphy (“Murf”), born June 2, 1937 in Pueblo, Colorado to James & Bertha (Quick) Murphy, went into the loving arms of Jesus on April 19, 2021 at the age of 83.

After graduating from Englewood High School, Murf served four years in the United States Navy as a jet aircraft mechanic and a subsequent two years in the reserves. He married Barbara A. Cochran and to that union they were blessed with three children - Darcy, Brett, and Holly.

Murf enjoyed working and visiting with people, as was demonstrated in his passion for sales with Tharco for thirty years.

On March 17, 1990, he married Connie Lou Golgart in Loveland, Colorado, and in desiring a warmer climate, they moved to Deming, NM in 1995. Murf was very active during this time in caring for his mother, walks in the desert, playing golf, remodeling/flipping properties, and enjoying numerous pets – most of them from rescue situations. In 2008, with a desire to be closer to family and friends, they returned and settled in Greeley, Colorado.
Murf loved the Lord and enjoyed serving his church in many areas. His greatest desire and prayer was that his family would all know Christ as their savior and the joy of serving.

He was preceded in death by both parents, his beloved stepfather, Ray Swank, and son Brett.

He is survived by wife, Connie Lou; daughters Darcy and Holly; stepsons Steve (Kim) and Brian (Cheryl) Golgart, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Sherwood Park Baptist Church 3333 W 16th St. Greeley, CO 80634 or Pathways Hospice 305 Carpenter Rd. Fort Collins, CO 80525.
