Murcy was a very kind and gentle man. I was married to his stepson Ronnie Miller. I remembered his special bond he had with step grandson Blake. If he wasn't spending time with Blake he was proud of killing a deer, catching fish, or his beautiful garden.
My deepest condolences to the family.
Rip murcy, sincerely
Tina Miller
