He was an assistant coxswain landing marines on the beaches of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. His ship, the USS Cecil was in Tokyo Bay when the enemy surrendered to the USA.

After his honorable discharge from the US Navy Toga returned to Oklahoma. He worked for the Power & Light Company and Stephens Ice Cream in western Oklahoma He went to work at Tinker Air Force Base in the early 1950’s before retiring after 33 years of Civil Service. He moved to Muskogee, OK in the 1990’s where he enjoyed many years of square dancing and traveling with the love of his life, Mary. He moved back to OKC in 2013 and made many more new friends.

Toga was preceded in death by his parents, Toga & Emma Jean Murphy, sister Rena Brown, and brother in law Charles Brown. He is survived by his son Mike Murphy and wife Debbie of OKC, son Tim Murphy and wife Lou of Amarillo, TX son Craig Murphy of Cleveland, OK, grandchildren Michael Todd Murphy, Nick Harroz, Stephen Murphy, Melissa Johnson & Anthony Murphy, niece Kim Green & family, and nephew Jon Brown & family.
