In Memory of Greg T. Murphy
It is with deep sadness that our family announces the passing of the man we all loved and admired, Greg (Poppa, Murph) Murphy, on September 18th, 2021. Greg leaves behind his loving wife of 48 years, Anne (Foran) and their two sons and wives Jason and Denise, Kris and Connie. Poppa loved his five Grandchildren more than anything, and he and Anne moved from Newfoundland to Ontario to see them grow up. Jessica, Marcus, Brooke, Alex and Gregory will forever remember their poppa with love.
Greg will be dearly missed by his brothers Ed, Fabian, Gerard and loving sister Debbie Parsons (Fred and nephew Greg). He also leaves behind brother and sister in laws whom he loved dearly: Hannah Finn (Gerard) niece Michelle and nephew Gerry; Tom Foran (Susan) and nephews Tommy and Kent; Ed (Libby) and nephews Patrick, Adam and Jeff; Mary and nephews Scott and Shawn. Predeceased by his parents Terry and Gladys Murphy and his brother Terry.
Greg leaves behind a long list of “best friends” and many who admired him as their teammate, coach or co-worker (Canada Post). Murph represented the province of Newfoundland in Softball and Curling, was an avid golfer, passionate Habs fan and valued member of the Navan Curling Club where he and Anne made life long friendships. If you knew Murph, chances are you are one of the many who felt drawn to him and enjoyed his company as he made all his friends and family feel special, and to him, you were!
To all of his friends and loved ones who gave him and his family support during his illness, we thank you. Relatives and friends are welcome to visit the family at Heritage Funeral Home, 1250 Trim Road, Orleans, Ontario on Sunday, October 17th for visitation from 1-3pm and memorial service from 3-4pm. Donations in Murph’s memory can made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
