MURPHY, Dennis Patrick

65, passed away May 24, 2018. He was born in Hamilton, Ohio, son of Neil and Marie Murphy. As a young man he attended a Catholic seminary in hopes of becoming a priest. Family issues intervened and plans changed. A college basketball career ended when he sustained serious lifelong injuries in a motorcycle accident. At age 22 he moved to Florida, eventually owning a large independent used car business in St. Petersburg. He later began a home remodeling business and was in high demand for his craftsmanship and attention to detail. A consummate storyteller, he enjoyed entertaining friends with his unique experiences and outlook on life. He is survived by one son, Sean (Valentina); and a grandson, Damon, both of whom reside in Italy. He is also survived by 10 brothers and sisters. Dennis was always true to himself. He did it his way. He will be greatly missed.
