Robert "Bob" Edward Murden, Sr., 79, passed away June 18, 2019. Born in Princess Anne County to the late Lemuel and Mary Lovett Murden and was the loving husband of the late Carolyn Sue Murden. He was an amazing diesel mechanic who could fix or make anything and even in his final weeks was tinkering with nearby objects. Bob loved children and enjoyed having a house full as often as possible and his tractor rides were much sought after. He loved camping and fishing and will hopefully finally land "Bubba", his one that got away.

Left to cherish his memory are his children, Rebecca Gordillo and Robert E. Murden, Jr. (Maureen); grandchildren and great-grandchildren; aunt, Audrey Hayden; and a host of other family and friends.

The family will receive friends at Graham Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 1112 Kempsville Road on Monday, June 24, 2019 from 10-11a.m. A service to celebrate his life will follow, beginning at 11 a.m. Burial will follow at Princess Anne Memorial Park. Please visit to view the service and leave a condolence to the family.

Bob was one of the great "people". He was the glue that held that shop together and served generations of truckers. He really could fix anything.

As busy as he was and as hard as he worked he always had time to share encouragement. When I was a teenager he tried his best to share what he knew about fixing things with me. I remember working under an R Model Mack all morning to try and drop a transmission onto a cradle with no success. Bob took a look at my tools and reached for a huge mallet. He pushed his creeper under that truck, banged on the transmission twice and dropped it onto the cradle. He told me that the difference between a helpless mechanic and a good one sometimes was just a bigger hammer.

I know you will miss him. There just are not many people left in this world who have his gifts. I was blessed to have been able to work with him.

Dear Murden Family: Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. I know that this is a difficult time for your family. I find that Romans 8:38,39 and Philippians 4;6,7 provide much comfort. Again I'm sorry for your loss.
