Christopher Earl Murphy, Jr., 38, of Earlington, KY transitioned away from all his loved ones at Little Sandy Correctional Complex in Sandy Hook, Kentucky on March 10, 2021 at 1:26 a.m. EST. Christopher was born to the queen of his heart Pamela Scisney and his devoted father Christopher Murphy, Sr. He was born in Fort Sill, Oklahoma on March 7, 1983, but grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, which he considered home (Georgia Boy). He was a 2001 graduate of Mundy’s Mill High School in Atlanta.
Christopher was a member of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Earlington, KY, and knew he loved the Lord.

He then began attending England Premier Truck Driving School.
Christopher loved spending time outside with his children playing football and kickball in the community, listening to music, and just being a big kid. He was loved by so many because of his big heart and charm. Christopher played semi-pro football for the Panthers based out of Kentucky.
