John was born September 18, 1980 in Shreveport, LA. He graduated from Northwest High School and the Institute of Natural Healing Sciences. He was a craftsman and mechanic by trade and enjoyed knowing how things worked. John loved the outdoors, he was passionate about the environment and was a long-time member of the Sierra Club. He had an adventurous spirit and was always looking for new ways to have a good time. John loved motorcycles, four-Wheelers, and any other all-terrain vehicles that he could get his hands on. He loved music of all kinds and was always introducing family and friends to new artists. In the last few years, he had become very interested in personal fitness and spent a great deal of time in the gym. John was a kind, gentle man that would do anything for those close to him. His passing has left a giant hole in our family and we will miss him always. John is preceded in death by his grandparents, Baxter and Mary Ruth Perry and Deon and Geneva Murphy; father, Wayne Murphy; and beloved dog Mickey. He is survived by his wife, Taylor; mother, Elaine Murphy; sister, Kate and husband Cory Jarvis; niece, Olivia; mother-in-law, Sheri and husband Manuel Garcia; brothers-in-law, Andrew and Connor; furry children, Rufus, Hazel and Humble; as well as numerous other family members and friends.
