Patrick Murphy, 79, Punta Gorda, FL, succumbed to the brave fight of his life on August 15, 2017. Born in County Cork, Ireland on June 6, 1938 to Patrick and JoHanna Murphy.
Patrick received his education at the Cork Monastery, Cork, Ireland. He came to the US at the age of 18 and served in the US Army as a medical corpsman. He was employed at Tam Ceramics, as an electrical supervisor. Upon his retirement, we headed to the sunshine state to make our new home. One of his enjoyments was to cast a line off our dock to hopefully catch dinner.
Patrick will be greatly missed by his devoted and loving wife, Kathleen, to whom he was married for 51 years. Our love is timeless and will last forever. Patrick is survived by his sisters, Sheila Collins and Mary (Donald) Steele. He was predeceased by his parents; sister, Margaret Casey; and brother-in-laws, Michael Casey and Francis Collins.
Services will be held Friday, September 8, 2017 11 AM at Gates of Heaven Cemetery, All Saints Mausoleum, Lewiston, NY.
Memorial donations may be made to Tidewell Hospice, Port Charlotte, FL.
Arrangements are by Larry Taylor Funeral. To express condolences to the family, please visit LTaylorFuneral.com and sign the online guest book.
