Kenneth Wesley Murry, age 82 of Quitman, entered the pearly gates of Heaven on August 29, 2022.

Ken was born in Tahoka, Texas on October 9, 1939, to Coy and Okla Murry. Ken married the love of his life, Patricia Neal in 1963 at Fireside Baptist Church in Dallas. Together, Ken and Pat had three children, Pamela, David, and Carrie.

Ken and Pat lived in the Dallas area for 50 years and upon retirement in 1999, they settled down in Quitman and spent the rest of their years together. Ken was employed at the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) in Dallas for numerous years.
