Curtis E. Murphy Jr. was born on March 30, 1944, to musician, Curtis E. Murphy Sr. and to singer, Deborah Robinson. Curtis passed away on February 11, 2021, after a sudden, unexpected decline of health, at the age of 76.
Curtis was the oldest among his 3 siblings, Dianne, Guy, and Keith. Curtis had a love of music - particularly jazz - which no doubt stemmed from his mother, who traveled singing with famous musicians. During his youth, his mother became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and introduced him and his siblings to the accurate knowledge of the Bible, which contains future promises and knowledge of our Heavenly Father Jehovah.
Throughout his life, Curtis chose many paths and left many paths behind. A part of that path was moving to Texas, where he would have the opportunity to navigate through the most significant role of his life - being a father to five beautiful children. Curtis became a father to Jenecia, Deborah, Amanda, Christopher, and Stephen. He connected with his fleshly and spiritual sister, Dianne, many years later from their youth. His children and many others that knew him, will remember Curtis by his humor, his logic, his ability to teach, and his contagious personality. Curtis truly started to get a glimpse of what living was much later in life, which led him back to Jehovah.
Curtis was preceded in death by his mother, Deborah Moss.
Curtis is survived knowingly by his sibling, Dianne Benson, by his children, Jenecia Patterson, Deborah Green, Amanda Terrell (Deon), Christopher Murphy, Stephen Murphy, and Allen Green III (stepson), his grandchildren, Jamyia, Aurion-A.C., Marlin, Robert, Tuesday, Alaina, Alfonzio, Tryniti, Trystan, and Alivia, his nieces, Raven, Alexia, Nikki, and by his extended family/spiritual sisters, Dorothy (Lawrence), Mae and host of friends and spiritual family.
