Obituary

King Edward Murray was born on July 1, 1938 in Trenton, North Carolina to the late George Johnson and Irene Bryant Murray. He was named by his grandfather, after a cigar, “King Edward Cigars.” He departed this life on January 17, 2019 at Sentara Leigh Hospital in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

In 1949, King moved to New York City and attended public school there. While attending school, he worked part time, delivering telegrams on his bicycle in the Bronx. King later joined the United States Navy. Soon after he had his first son, Audie Dean, whom he named after his favorite Western movie character. After his service in the Navy, he began his career in the trucking industry in New York. King relocated to Virginia, where he continued to drive truck until he gained a position with the electric company. He was also a mechanic; he could take apart and repair any car, without using a manual.

In Virginia, he met, fell in love, and married, Margaret Custis. During their union, they reared many children, including two grandchildren he raised, Carlton, whom he affectionately called “Pac-O-Man” and Alicia, whom he affectionately referred to as “Boo boot.”

During his retirement, King enjoyed sitting on the steps, no matter what the weather was, getting his fresh air and giving thumbs up to everyone that passed by.

King was preceded in death by his parents and two granddaughters, Tiffany Murray and Tia Byrd.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his wife, Margaret Murray; two sisters, Katrina Murray Barlow and Barbara Bryant Henderson; eight children, Audie Dean Murray, Carlton “Pac” McKinley, Alicia Snead, Sharone (Maurice) Brown, Denise (Frank) Pettit, Michael (Valerie) Custis, Ronnie Finley, and Ricky Ricardo Greene; grandchildren, Nekeke (Sherman) Thomas, Michael (Dominique) Laurie, Toni Murray, Janie Hargis, Shameka Cutler, and Kolika Gray; great grandchildren, Isaiah King, Noah, Joy, Jordan, Khyleel, Ameirah, Alexea, Aurbree, Zoey, Kiara, Makayla, Michael, and Sevyn; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.
