Devon McMurray

June 17, 1936 - August 22, 2017

Devon McMurray, 81, of Hendersonville passed away on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at Mission Hospital. A native and nearly lifelong resident of Henderson County, he was a son of the late Carvie and Batus Talley McMurray. Devon was also preceded in death by his brothers, T.C. and Ed McMurray. He spent a brief period of time in Michigan learning his trade before returning to the mountains.

A U.S. Navy veteran, Devon devoted over 60 years of his life to being a transmission repair expert. He loved to be farming and spend time in the hayfield. He enjoyed anything to do with his animals and was an avid NASCAR fan, especially Dale Earnhardt. He found joy in listening to George Jones and tinkering with old cars. In his younger years, Devon enjoyed spending time on his Harley.

He is survived by his children, Tony McMurray, Biddie McMurray, and Mike McMurray; grandchildren, Justin, Brandon, Christopher, Lela and Austin McMurray; brothers, Floyd (Shawn) McMurray, Glover (Barbara) McMurray and Grover (Melanie) McMurray; sisters, Bernice (Darrell) Rhodes, Leoda Burnett and Anita ; numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 6pm on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at Barker Heights Baptist church with Pastor Jimmy Owens officiating. The family will receive friends for 1 hour prior to the service.
