Obituary

Joshua Lee Murr
Joshua Lee Murr, age 38 of Edina, MO, passed away Friday, March 22, 2019 in Kirksville, MO. He was born January 11, 1981 in Kirksville, Missouri, the son of Lonnie Lee and Penny Louise (Potter) Murr.

Surviving are his daughter, Alyssa René Murr, of Edina, MO, his father, Lonnie Lee Murr, of Baring, MO; his paternal grandmother, Sylvia Murr, of LaPlata, MO; one sister, Crystal Karhoff, of Edina, MO; a niece, Natalie Howerton, and nephews, Jakob and Mason Karhoff, all of Edina, MO, aunts and uncles, Randy (Joy) Murr, of LaPlata, MO, Lisa Snyder, of Kirksville, MO, Clyde (Virginia) Potter, of Baring, MO, John (Cheryl) Vice, of Martinstown, MO and Rosalie Vice, of Kirksville, MO, numerous cousins, friends and his chihuahuas, Avie, Belle, and Mama.

Josh was preceded in death by his mother, Penny Louise Murr, his paternal grandfather, Earnest Lee Murr, his maternal grandparents, Robert (Bobby) Potter and Virginia (Mountain) Potter, his paternal great-grandfather Clyde V. Potter, and an uncle, Robert (Bobby) Potter.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and camping with his friends. Josh had a sweet nature and was loved by many. His family and friends will remember him fondly as a sweet, caring man that would do anything for anyone.

My condolences to the family. Continue to reflect on your cherished memories with Joshua. May you find comfort in God’s promise to resurrect our loved ones in the near future. “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more...the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

My condolences to the Murr families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Joshua. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
