February 17, 1920 -

Raise your glass, whisper "na zdrowie!", and toast a life well lived. Those left behind will cherish the soul of a philosopher, the wisdom of a professor, the love of a father, grandfather, brother, son and husband. The consummate gardener has left his soil well-tended, every flower named, every tomato with its rightful owner. We shared countless peaceful moments and witnessed his deep appreciation of life's simplest treasures: the flight of birds, the art of listening, the power of vocabulary, the long slow sip of a fine Scotch, a steady smoke ring and the comforting sound of family and friends laughing. His wit was immense, second only to his kindness. In his own words, he was God's happy man. The favor returned, for it is God who is happy now. Murphy leaves behind Mary, his wife of 58 years; brother Chet; daughters Danielle (Roger), Deborah (Paul), Deidre (Steve), Donna (Scott): sons Daniel (Molly) and David (Laima); grandchildren, Christen (Buzz), Christopher, Colin, Caitlin, Caroline, Elizabeth, Adrianne, Jessica, Jeffrey, Jillian, Lindsay, Megan (his angel in heaven), Emily, Abby and Darius. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Holy Trinity Church, 209 N. Hanford Avenue, San Pedro 90732 or Mary Star of the Sea High School, 2500 N. Taper Avenue, San Pedro, CA 90731. The rosary will be recited on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. and a funeral Mass on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Both services will be held at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in San Pedro. Interment will be held at Green Hills Memorial Park. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
