We learned about young Johnny yesterday and were heartbroken and then someone said Big John had also passed. The shock and heartbreak was overwhelming. The world has lost a wonderful, loving, funny man. Please know that our thoughts are with you all. There just aren't words that can possibly express how we feel for you. Our deepest sympathy to all.

Like the big cranes he operated, John also had a big heart and would go out of his way to help anyone. He has answered Gods calling and gone home.

I met John at the port facility. he was in charge of an asphalt spill that had gotten into the sewer system. he would worry himself sick over my safety. It was such a pleasure working for him. He was truly a great man. he treated all people with respect and dignity. I can not thank him enough.
Sincerely

Dear Murphy Family,

I knew John as my classmate at Central Catholic. He was just a very nice guy during those years. And it sounds like he never changed.

You have my sincerest sympathy.

To all of John's Family: We are all better people for knowing John, and he left us much to soon. Working with John at the Port Authority was always a refreshing experience and one that quickly reminded everyone you can't take yourself too seriously and what others say will fade away. You can be sure John is telling boisterous jokes and taking over all God's cranes at the big port in the sky. Thank all of you for letting us share your Dad, granddad, uncle, friend and the list goes on and on. See you my friend...Gene Schneider in NH
