Murdoch was born on April 2nd, 1941 in Mulberry, FL., to the late Thelma and Reverend Murdoch Angress Shaw Sr. Murdoch graduated from UF with an Architect degree. He went on to marry the love of his life Marilyn, at the Methodist church in Eustis, FL, with his father the Reverend Murdoch Shaw Sr officiating the wedding. They were happily married for 50 years until her passing in 2015. Murdoch was very active in youth programs, he coached Fruitland Park Cap League, and Fruitland Park Dixie Youth League, and did everything Marilyn asked him to do for the Boy Scouts of America. One of his first designs as an Architect was the Welcome Center for Leesburg, which has since been converted to a restaurant called "Legends". Murdoch really enjoyed attending gun shows and was an advocate for gun rights. He also loved history, trains, and obtained his pilot's license from the Leesburg Airport.
