Richard Paul Murphy

June 11, 1950December 29, 2020


Passed suddenly but peacefully with his loving mother, Veronica Murphy (nee Charette), by his side at the age of 70. Predeceased by his father, William Murphy (2016) and his daughter, Angela Storey (2011). Proud father of Alexandra (Cameron) Murphy and Christine Murphy, and step-daughter, Kate (Majd) Kulaib. Dear grandfather of Taylor Murphy, Jarod Guthrie, and Rileigh Storey and step-grandchildren, Adam and Maya Kulaib. Great-grandfather of Parker Mitchell. He will also be missed by extended family, friends and neighbours.

Rick was an animal lover, passionate cook and handy man. He always loved to help others and lend a helping hand even without being asked. Rick truly lived a carefree lifestyle, with a beer and cigarette in hand. A special thank you goes to the Berkshire Care Centre Staff, especially on the 7th floor, for their kindness and compassion.

A graveside service will take place at Heavenly Rest Cemetery on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 at 2:00pm. **Due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, the family has chosen 10 people to attend the service. Friends are invited to come to the interment but must remain in their vehicles at all times. No exceptions.**

In lieu of flowers, please reach out to a local nursing home to inquire about donating Personal Protective Equipment in Rick’s honour. As a family we urge everyone to be mindful of the current pandemic and always stay safe.
