In October 1980 Patrick and Martha Murphy came to Australia as guests of the Australian Government and the then fledgling Australian Federal Police, in which I was a Detective Inspector in the staff office of the then AFP Commissioner of the AFP, Sir Colin Woods. It was my good fortune to be assigned to accompany Pat Murphy and his wife on both official and social meetings with senior Australian law enforcement and government officials in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane over two weeks. He left an indelible impression on me, not only for his intellect and inquiring mind but also his genuine friendliness and humility.

I realise I am five years late in penning this condolence, but I was simply unaware, accept by chance, of his passing. Vale Patrick

My mother was Patrick Murphy's cousin, their fathers were brothers. Living in California I never met him. I only knew him from the few memories my mother had shared with us. I know she was very proud to say her cousin was the Comissioner of the NYPD.

While doing research for a section of my book I discovered that Patrick Murphy had gone home to be with the Lord. I met Mr. Murphy here in DC while working for the elite Roving Leader Program for the DC Recreation Department (Youth Gang Task Force). He invited me and my co-workers to meet once a month with beat officers to enhance Community Relations. He was a humanitarian and a good and honest human being. He will be truly missed.
