Timothy Murphy Obituary
Timothy M. Murphy

1947 - 2014 SHUSHAN, NY Timothy M. Murphy, 66, died unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington. He was the beloved husband of Pamela A. McCauley. Born July 17, 1947, in Detroit, Mich., he was the son of Paul P. and Marcia Q. Pilmore Murphy. He served in the United States Army from 1966 to 1969. Tim earned a Master's Degree in Social Work and was a Warden for the Arizona Department of Corrections for 25 years. After retirement, he and Pam moved east to be near her family with the stipulation that Tim would spend his winter someplace warm, where he could scuba dive. Therefore, he spent summers near the Battenkill River, volunteering with the Arlington Rescue Squad and working at Paulin's store and winters in Belize, working with the Belizean Red Cross, scuba diving and hammock testing. Along with his wife of 18 years, he is survived by two stepchildren, Heather Lynn Pickett (Roddy) of Floyds Knobs, Ind. and Shawn Michael Kelly (Carrie) of Florence, Ariz.; two siblings, Daniel Murphy (Jill) and Marcia Hanser (Tom); a beloved aunt, Marion Glaser; in-laws, Doug McCauley (Wendy), Robert (Yvette), Arnold, Howard and Arlene Law; three grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, and their families. FUNERAL NOTICE: Friends and relatives are invited to call on Saturday, June 14, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main Street, Cambridge, N.Y. A celebration of his life will be held later in the summer on the river. For those wishing to remember this warm, generous, giving man in a special way, the family requests donations be made to the Arlington Rescue Squad, 66 Chittenden Drive, Arlington, VT 05205.
