Mitchell L. Murphy, 61, died Thursday, April 27, at his home. He had been having health issues for more than a year prior to his death.
He was born May 6, 1955, in Goshen, Indiana, to Gerald and Joyce K. (Hostetler) Murphy.
He was preceded in death by both parents; a brother, Steven G. Murphy; and a sister, Brenda K. (Murphy) Monroe.
Mitchell graduated from Goshen High School in 1974. After school, he enlisted in the United States Army and served overseas in Germany. After his time in the service, he worked as a self-employed carpet layer and tile installer in Arizona for several years. He later moved to Utah.
He started driving truck cross country about 25 years ago for Marten Trucking and about 10 years ago for Seward Trucking out of Nebraska.
He is survived by two brothers, Phillip A. (Nancy) Murphy, Howe, Indiana, and Dennis G. (Christine) Murphy, Tucson, Arizona.
Cremation will take place in Utah. There will be a private family gathering to honor the deceased later in the summer.
