Elliot William (Murph) Adkisson Sr., age 79 of Egg Harbor Township, NJ went peacefully to be with his Son Robert (Bobby) surrounded by his ever-Loving wife Bev and Family on Wednesday September 30, 2020.
Murph was a Navy Reserve Veteran who served aboard the USS Essex (CVS-9) with a Rating of Fireman Apprentice. Upon his discharge in December 1960, Murph worked to obtain his Union Card and became a member of the Plumbers & Steamfitters Union Local 322 beside his Father Edmund and Brother Ed working many years at the Salem Nuclear Power Plant and ultimately joining then in Retirement in 1996.
Murph was a beacon of light to Bev and there 4 Sons (Skeet, Ed, Brian and Bobby) during his life, often working double and triple shifts at the Plant to instill the importance of hard work which leads to a stable home life and providing all we needed growing up.
Murph’s favorite hobby without question was Drag Racing which he lovingly shared with Bev and the boys.

After racing and retirement Murph moved into boating and spent many weekends at Harbor Cove Marina with Bev, dog Buffy and the many friends they made there.

I'd like to offer my condolences to Beverly, Skeeter, Ed, and Brian on Murph's passing. He certainly led a full life and produced a wonderful group of sons and grandchildren. Having coached Murph's sons in baseball, I'm sure that Murph passed on the qualities of intensity and competitiveness that they all demonstrated as high school athletes. I'm sure that they each will pass Murph's lessons to their children too. Although I can't be with you all on Friday, be assured that you all are in my prayers. Ralph Miller
