He was proceeded in death by his father, his mother, his brothers,  Steve Murphy and Johnny Murphy.

HB served in the Navy for four years. He retired from Local 107 Pipe Fitters & Welders in Louisville, Ky. He traveled many different states and became known as a very skilled welder. After many years of the traveling he decided he wanted to stay close to home. He, also, retired from Hill's Pet Products after 13 years in the maintenance department and retired from Bowling Green/Warren County Justice Center after 12 years in the maintenance department. He really wanted more time to spend with his family, especially his grandchildren. Whatever sport or program the grandchildren were involved in Grandpa and Meme Linda would be there. For three years he helped coach a basketball team and was planning to help coach this year. The boys on that team thought he was great and looked forward to him being there. HB got interested in power lifting and bench pressing, which lead to competitions. He always came home with a trophy. His plan was to compete in the World Power Lifting and Bench Press in February. We all thought he was the best. A Celebration of Life will be held at Hillvue Heights Church, 3219 Nashville Road, at 6:00 PM, November 28, 2023. Visitation will be 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
