Whereas, Mr. Hershel A. Murry of Chapin died Saturday, January 13, 1996; and
Whereas, a native of Bearden, Arkansas, Mr. Murry was the son of the late H. Jewel and Myrtle Colvert Murry; and
Whereas, Mr. Murry, who served his country with distinction both in World War II and the Korean War, retired in 1968 as Master Sergeant from the U.S. Army after twenty years of Honorable Service; and
Whereas, during his very active and productive business life in Chapin, Mr. Murry was the owner and operator of Murry's Garden Center, Murry's Restaurant, and Murry's Texaco and was last retired in 1988 from his private business at Murry's Factory Outlet; and
