Guy Edwin Murphy, III entered into the Kingdom of Heaven on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.  Guy was born in Columbia, South Carolina in 1971 and has resided in the Metropolitan New Orleans area of Louisiana since 1972.

He will be remembered as a kind, loving man who worked hard as a teacher, coach and mentor.  He had a strong love for his family and friends and cherished his St. Christopher school family and all of his students, both past and present. His love for shaping young minds gave him enormous joy. He was an avid history buff, loved studying ancestry, and was a talented writer. We will forever remember him as a loving father, husband, brother and a friend to all that met him.

He is preceded in death by his father Guy Edwin Murphy, Jr. and his brother Gerald E. Murphy.

The family he has left behind to cherish his memory are his wife of 27 years, Alexis Smith Murphy and their beloved son Daniel Murphy; his mother Mary E. Murphy; his siblings Robert Walker (Gaynell), Rosemary Walker Chauvin (John), and Julie Murphy Rico (Brad); his nieces and nephews Christopher, Alicia, John-Claude, Joshua and Gabriella; his mother and father in law Marian and Louis Smith.  He is also survived by his three closest friends with whom he shared a special brotherhood bond, Paul, Trey and Joey and his precious Godchildren.
