Percy J. Murphy Obituary
Murphy, Percy (Perk) J.

Percy (Perk) J. Murphy passed away peacefully in Albuquerque on July 23, 2016.

He was a man who loved his family, his God, and his country. He was selfless in helping and supporting others and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

As one was of 13 children, Perk was born in Sacramento, California in 1924. He married the love of his life, Anne Walery, when she was 17 and he was 18. They have been married 74 years.

Perk loved the outdoors: hunting, fishing, and camping with his family. He built a cabin in the mountains of California where the family spent many wonderful summers. Along with his church, family and friends were always a top priority for Perk. He and Anne loved to socialize and Perk was an exceptional dancer! They also loved to travel, visiting all 50 states as well as places in Asia and the Caribbean.

Perk was an amazing father to his three children: Richard Murphy (married to Christine Murphy), Jeanette Lee, and Colleen Wagoner (married to Douglas Wagoner). His 15 grandchildren adored him. He also leaves behind 28 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

A Memorial Service will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, 28 July at St. Thomas of Canterbury Church, 425 University Blvd. NE. A Wake will follow the service/reception at 4916 Sunningdale Ave.
