Dear Murko family please accept our deepest sympathy on Eddies passing.
Dearest Mary and all the Murcko family; please accept my husband Andy and my sincerest and heartfelt sympathies. The Murcko family was a part of us, and our daughter Melanie practically lived with Cindy, and her family. Melanie loved going to “the farm” for they always had so much fun there. Love and prayers, Angela Frank.♥️

With kind remembrance.
My deepest sympathy to all members of the Murcko family. He possessed an excellent work ethic and always focused on creating quality results. His family was his top priority and was quite evident when you spoke with him. He is going to be greatly missed.
Oh Eddie, where to begin? You were an amazing brother who had the wonderful gift of gab. You were always happy-go-lucky with a devilish smirk on your face. You could memorize an audience with the way you would tell your stories and you remembered so many details from years gone by. Everything you did had to be to perfection! People gravitated toward you and wanted to be your friend and you were a good friend in return.
You have been through so much – like the time you accidentally fell and Cedo ran over you with the manure spreader and broke your collar bone! Then the day dad brought me home from the hospital after I broke my wrist, happy to see me, you ran toward me and tripped on the sidewalk and went head first into the edge of the porch – back to the hospital he went to get stitches in your four head! There was the day a deer landed on your car and totaled it. Then a tragic accident happened on your way home from celebrating your birthday – having that memory every birthday was tragic! Also the time you and Dee were on a motorcycle and were hit broadside by a drunk driver – you went ballistic! Dee had many broken bones and had to be put back together with metal pins.
One event after another, you survived them all! If that wasn’t enough, you were given one more mountain to climb the day you went to the ER with severe abdominal pains and given the devastating news that you had terminal cancer. How much more can one person endure? Most everyone else would’ve said “why me God”, not you. Even this didn’t slow you down. You had things to do and projects to finish and through it all, reminding us to “stay strong!” No matter what God sent you, you took it all in stride you were positive and strong to the very end. You knew you were going to Paradise with Mom, Dad and Pete waiting to greet you with open arms and say “Welcome Home!”
You are loved and will be terribly missed my little brother! See you on the other side!
