June 24, 1989 - May 9, 2017
Duncan James "DJ" McMurchie, 27, Charlotte, died instantly on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, from injuries sustained in an accident. DJ was born June 24, 1989, and was a lifelong Charlotte resident. He had recently completed his double major in Business and German at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
He is survived by his mother and father, Tonia and Tim McMurchie; his brother, Tripp Shealy and wife, Sutton Shealy and nephews, Hawke, Harland, and Hayes Shealy; his brother, Seth McMurchie; his sister, Kathleen McMurchie Smits and husband, Brandon Smits. He was also excited to celebrate a fourth nephew in the coming days.
DJ had the biggest heart for his family and friends. He was the kind of son, brother, uncle, and friend that would give you the shirt off his back. He loved riding his mountain bike at Colonel Beatty Park near his family's home. He was happiest spending time with his dog, Cooper, and his nephews; they were his whole world. We cannot imagine a world without him.
A celebration of DJ's life will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 19, at LakePointe Hall in Colonel Beatty Park. The family will receive friends at the park following the service. Contributions in memory of DJ may be made to Men's Shelter of Charlotte.
