VIRGIL J. MURPHY JR. 5/6/1989 - 10/24/2013 Graduated Apple Valley HS 2007 Attended Victorville College Virgil Jr.'s final wishes will be carried out on November 21, 2013 in Ventura, California. He is survived by his father, Virgil F. Murphy and mother, Armida R. Murphy and his one brother, Michael Murphy. He is also survived by grandmother, Trevia Irvin and grandfather, Manuel Ruiz Jr.; uncles, Pat Murphy, William Swift, Craig Johnson, Richard Ruiz and Manuel Ruiz III; aunts, Vicky Johnson, Pamela Wiest and Terry Rojo. He lived with his father and step-mother, Renee M. Murphy, step-sister, Lacy, and step-grandmother, Ruth Hampton. Virgil Jr. went to sleep in death, at home, after suffering from a genetic disease. His family takes comfort in the hope set forth in the Bible at Acts 24:15, which states there will be a resurrection of the righteous, as well as the unrighteous, also at Revelation 21:4 where God promises death will be no more. I, Virgil Murphy Sr., look forward to seeing my son in the paradise where he will live in perfect health and we will never have to part. I am thankful I was able to tell my son how much I loved him and how proud I was to call him my son.
