Jim enjoyed singing, fishing, cooking, watching animals, and socializing over food. He spent his working years as a builder, working in construction and sales. He’ll be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a stepson, Jeff Murphy.
Jim is survived by his wife, LaDoris Brown; two sons; a stepson, Michael Murphy of Arkansas; and a sister, Effie Eddie of El Dorado Springs, Missouri.
A karaoke tribute in memory of Jim will be held at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, April 30, 2016, at Shindigs, 3457 W 76 Country Blvd. (next to Gilley’s Texas Cafe) in Branson, Missouri.
