Obituary

Reverend Herbert Amanual Murrell, Jr, 89 of Cabot, Arkansas, passed away Sunday, August 23, 2020. He was born on June 7, 1931 in Colfax, Louisiana, to the late Herbert and Pearl Murrell.

Reverend Murrell first answered the call to ministry when he and his family moved to Fordyce, Arkansas in 1959, where they pastored the First United Pentecostal Church for 46 years. Herbert quickly earned the nickname of “Preacher Murrell” during his time in Fordyce. This name not only reflected his passion for the Kingdom of God but also his love for wearing a suit and tie everywhere he went. After retiring from Pastor in Fordyce, he and his wife moved to Garland, Texas, where he served as Care Pastor for North Cities United Pentecostal Church for 15 years. His love for God and people was truly evident in every aspect of his life.

Herbert was preceded in death by his parents; his loving wife, Rita Murrell; his son, Herbert Murrell III (Buddy) and grandson Brent Murrell.

Reverend Murrell loved his family dearly. He was known by his family as “Jr” and also “Papaw”. He is survived by his daughter, Dianne and Son In Law Dannie Odle; daughter Darlene Harlow; siblings Freddie Murrell, Reg Murrell, Bertie Smith and Arnold Murrell. He is also survived by four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

The viewing will be held Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at Gallagher Funeral Home from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The funeral service will be at 10:00 am Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at Gallagher Funeral Home with interment to follow at Forrest Lawn Memorial Park in Ball, LA.

On Saturday, September 12, 2020 a Celebration of Life service will be held at North Cities Pentecostal Church in Garland, Texas at 2:00pm.

Brother Murrell,
An easy man to love and respect. Brother Murrell's whole life seemed to say "follow me, I will show you the way to God!" His attitude, his attire and his conduct seemed to convey that he was on point and ready for the Lord's instructions daily.

We shall always be encouraged by his walk with the Lord.
