It is with great sadness that we announce the passing od our father Richard “Rick” Murphy, better known as “Murph” on September 9, 2020 at his home in Calgary AB at the age of 64.

Rick was the son of the late Edward & Lucy Murphy of Newcastle.

Rick grew up in Miramichi, he was a licensed Auto Mechanic by trade. But was known to turn is hand to anything. Rick was a man of few words but was always available to lend a helping hand to family or friends who needed it. As a young father, he took pride in building his children’s confidence by teaching them how to drive, he always said “you can do anything you put your mind too, just do it!” His creative mind designed and built many play structures for his children, playhouses, swing sets to a water slide off the front step! He spent many weekends on weekend woods adventures with his children, Peabody Lake, Sheep House Falls or Mullin Stream. He passed his love for adventure and the woods onto his children. He & his son Kyle worked on many restoration projects together, memories that will fill our hearts for years to come. And his first great granddaughter, our beautiful Ava Marie Simon Malley.

Rick was a loving husband to his wife Carol (Millar) Murphy of Calgary AB. They share many years together with many wonderful memories. Their love for one another was always present.

Rick was a family man, who loved spending quality time with his parents and brothers over the years. He had many dear friends, some sadly gone before him, and those left to mourn his passing.

Father & grandfather to Tanya Murphy of South Esk, NB, her two daughters, Amanda & Paige Trevors of Gray Rapids, NB. Kelly (Ricky) Malley of Miramichi and her three sons, Keegan (Brittany), Tanner (Michaela), and Connor Malley all of Miramichi NB.
