Del was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama (Roll Tide Roll). His friends knew him as Eddie but when he joined the military and was required to use his first name he began using Del Eddie Murphy. Del retired from the military after 20 years of service and decided to pursue his entertainment career in 2003 to perform in public venues as his father did years prior. Del performed while working as a government civilian at HQ SOCOM (Special Operations Command) at MacDill AFB from 2003 to December 2018 as a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Officer and decided to "really" retire and pursue his passion for entertaining in front of crowds.
