Brenton Dennis Murphy

February 23, 1982 - December 9, 2018

Brenton Dennis Murphy passed away peacefully surrounded by family on December 9, 2018 after a courageous and hard fought battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He leaves behind his 8 year old son, Liam Connor Murphy, who is his greatest love and proudest accomplishment. Brent will be missed everyday by his loving parents, James and Jeanne Murphy, his three sisters Annathea (Joseph) Nackrelli, Elyse (Joseph) Knight, and Breauna Murphy, two nieces Taylar Nackrelli and Hattie Knight, and four nephews Benjamin Knight, Eli Knight, Carson Knight, and Cohen Nackrelli, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Brent was born on February 23, 1982 in Clarksburg, WV. He loved playing with his son, a good meal, a hot cup of coffee, the outdoors, vintage t-shirts, camping, and being surrounded by his family and friends. Brent had a kind heart, a quick wit, and a quiet demeanor. When he told a joke, you would laugh for a while.

Brent graduated from West Liberty University with a degree in Mathematics and had accepted a position as an Adjunct Professor to teach math at his alma mater prior to his diagnosis.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 17 at Altmeyer Funeral Home 1400 Eoff Street Wheeling, WV 26003. The family will accept visitors on Sunday, December 16 from 4:00-6:00 pm as well as Monday beginning at 1:00 pm. The funeral service will begin at 2:00 pm, followed by a celebration of Brenton’s life.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to The Liam Connor Murphy Trust 584 Pasture Brook Road Severn, MD 21144 or simply enjoy a Guinness in Brent’s honor.
