Murphy, of Newport; three grandchildren, Yvonne Moyer and husband, Steve, Sheri Murphy, and Jackie Murphy; five great-grandchildren, Cody, Adam, Aron, Ashleigh, and Lexie; one brother, Jim “Pickle” Hile, of Mount Pleasant Mills; one sister, Dorothy Swartz, of Mifflintown; and many nieces and nephews.
