Kevin Murray, age 51, of Benton, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021, at Marshall County Hospital.

Kevin was born on May 5, 1969, in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, to the late Tommy and Linda Ballew Murray. Most recently, Kevin worked in product safety for Mayfield Consumer Products. Before, he worked there one of the jobs he was the most proud of was working as a supervisor for Four Rivers Behavioral Health’s William H. Fuller Center. Early in life, Kevin turned his passion for his hobbies into businesses and owned both a comic book store in Paducah called “Collectors Corner” as well as “Entertainment Castle” which was a TV and movie memorabilia store. He had many other hobbies and interests, everything from playing the piano and most recently teaching himself Chinese and sign language, to Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Dungeons and Dragons, and comic books. Kevin was also a writer, and it was always a dream of his to publish a book and be able to see it on the shelves of stores.
