Robert Murphy Obituary
Robert Murphey passed away December 25, 2014.  Son of JoEllen and Albert Murphey, brother of Steve. Robert was born in Oklahoma City and grew up in Albuquerque, NM.  He attended Stanford University, CA and graduated with a degree in English and Political Science. 

Robert was a writer, an avid hiker, and a keen historian of American History.  His love for the Rocky Mountains and writing together produced several unpresented historical novels.  His knowledge of history mixed with the gift of articulation colored with light many a conversation at restaurants that he was employed by in his lifetime, such as the Crag's Lodge, most recently.

Some of the other many joys of Robert's included family members and friendships, the great trails of Estes Park where he frequently went running, live music, and his cats. A welcoming, generous and fun man, he will be deeply missed by many. A Celebration of Robert's life will take place at Crag's Lodge on Saturday January 24, 2015 at 1:00 PM. See www.allnutt.com to send a message to Robert's family.
