He was once asked if he really made much money in the business of vegetables and he laughed and said no, but that he enjoyed working the land. No one could ever have grown a better watermelon and he was famously known by his local community for his winter crops of turnips, collards, mustards and rutabagas, the summer peas, and the muscadine vineyard he loyally tended. He would often tell you things like "I'll pay you tomorrow for a hamburger today" and loved moon pies, nutty buddy bars, honey buns and apple pie. He took honey in his coffee and when it came to sports he was an Auburn fan, but he'd root for Alabama too. Though his favorite was to watch the Tampa Bay Ray's play baseball. He was a godly man, having been a Deacon at his church and an active member of fellowship and now he rests with the Lord as of February 10th, 2022.

Nancy Lynn Johnson Wilson was born on December 11, 1948 to Ottis and Louise Johnson in Troy, AL. After losing her father at a young age, she helped her mother with her younger brother and sister, which surely contributed to her nurturing spirit and gift to care for others. She attended Escambia High School in Pensacola. In 1969 she began work at Monsanto where she met the love of her life, Dennis. She and Dennis were married for 39 years before he went home to heaven.
Nancy was known for many things, but her warmth and ability to serve others is what we will remember most. She gave of herself and sacrificed so that the people in her life could have all that they wanted. She was incredibly selfless and generous.
She was active at her church and led Sunday school alongside her husband for many years. There they mentored and spoke into many peoples' lives to lead them closer to Jesus. While Dennis was teaching or on mission trips, Nancy was often behind the scenes handling all the details. She was a servant in every sense of the word and never needed credit or attention.
She worked at Escambia Westgate school and Ransom Middle where she cared for students with special needs. Her compassion and hands-on care for the children was inspiring. She often went out of her way to do extra for them, going as far as bringing them to her home and visiting them at their own.
Nancy was hilarious, fun, silly, and loved a good get together. She was incredibly resourceful and could MacGyver any item into something useful. She was beautiful and knew how to put together a good outfit. She was an avid QVC shopper and a favorite of the UPS drivers. She was a dang good cook and really good at reheating leftovers to make them taste even better than the first time. She made her house an inviting and welcoming home to countless friends. She created magic in all the big and small moments.
She was most proud of her children and grandchildren. Her joy and pride in who they are and the depth to which she loved them will be missed.

Christopher Charles Murphy - July 26, 1989 - December 11, 2021

Departed: 12/11/2021 (Cantonment)
Obituary Preview: In Loving Memory of Christopher Charles Murphy beloved son, father, brother and boyfriend.
Christopher Charles Murphy, known to many of his friends as Murph, was born a warm- hearted, charismatic, creative Leo. He was brought into this beautiful yet complex world by his loving and nurturing mother, Jean Stout, and his father, Timothy Murphy on July 26, 1989 in Hackettstown, New Jersey. Christopher moved with his mother and his step-father, Ronnie Stout, to the beautiful white shores of Pensacola, Florida in 1997. Chris courageously fought a long hard battle with opiate addiction. Chris’s lengthy battle against the disease of addiction ended peacefully on December 11, 2021.
Christopher Murphy attended Pensacola State College, formerly known as Pensacola Junior College, for the adult high school program and graduated with his diploma in 2006. He went on to receive a certification in the trade craft of welding from George Stone Technical College in 2013. Chris became a highly skilled welder earning many certifications. He would often say that welding brought a sense of peace to him. He worked at Austal USA in Mobile, Alabama Bell Steel and Patti Marine in Pensacola, Florida.
One of Murph’s biggest passions in life was music. He learned how to play the guitar when he was a teenager and continued to hone his skills. Christopher loved travelling and taking road trips with friends to attend music festivals. Chris was also an avid skateboarder in his youth and frequented many skate parks around Pensacola area. He also enjoyed competitive running and bike riding. Chris was a fan of The University of Alabama’s football team. Murph was very talented and creative and loved to draw. Often creating caricatures of his friends that were highly raved about. He enjoyed being outside in nature and especially loved the beach. Chris loved amusement parks, especially roller coasters. Chris also enjoyed playing poker and would rave about his competitiveness. An animal lover especially of dogs, Chris along with his family, raised five dogs from pups. He was also an avid reader of books by Hunter S. Thompson books, Tim Dorsey and Richard Rhodes.
One of the greatest things about Chris Murphy was his sense of humor. He had a dry sense of humor that not everyone understood, but if you did, he would certainly outwit you and have you laughing for hours. Even someone equally as sarcastic would have occasional doubts as to if Chris was joking or being serious, 9 times out of 10 he was cracking a facetious joke that probably just went over your head. He often thought about becoming a comedian so people could laugh. He was very knowledgeable in current events and he intrigued people with his realistic views of political faults.
Christopher had two loves of his life and those lucky girls were his amazing mother Jean and his free-spirited daughter Madisyn. Chris was blessed with Madisyn Jae Murphy on February 12, 2013 and it was love at first sight from that moment forward. Madisyn’s lively, care free spirit was certainly something that gave Chris hope on some of his darkest days. Christopher was a momma’s boy through and through, the two of them shared an unbreakable bond and he loved her so very dearly.
Chris Murphy’s charm, outgoing nature, and contagious positive energy made it so that no one was a stranger to him. He was so easy to talk to, very compassionate, and always kind. He would often volunteer with The American Red Cross, Children’s Home Society of Florida and Waterfront Rescue Mission. He is going to be greatly missed by so many people. His benevolent heart and eccentric spirit left an impression on many people. Christopher Murphy is survived by his mother, Jean Stout, and step father Ronnie Stout, his 8-year-old daughter Madisyn Murphy, his father Timothy Murphy, several aunts and uncles and paternal grandmother.
We are asking that you please help us spread the awareness about addiction by donating to The voices project is a grass roots recovery advocacy organization that is changing the way America sees recovery one voice at a time. End the silence, end addiction.
Funeral services will be held at 12Noon on Saturday, December 18th, 2021 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home South located at 100 Beverly Pkwy Pensacola, Florida 32505. Beginning at 2pm there will be a celebration of life at 1225 Fort Pickens Road, Pensacola Beach.
