In Loving Memory Of

Peter Murphy

 

Peter Murphy, resident of Grande Prairie, formerly of Grand Falls, Newfoundland, passed away on Monday, November 20, 2017, in Grande Prairie, at the age of 47 years.

Peter was born November 3, 1970 in Grand Falls, NL.  He was raised in Grand Falls, NL, Churchill Falls, Labrador. He was a purebred Newfie and proud of it.

Peter was a Journeyman welder, but he mainly worked as a safety consultant. A “by the book”, “straight as an arrow” man, honesty was something he lived by. He was admired for his silly sense of humour.

He loved “Big Red”, his prized possession, and working on it was an ongoing process. Peter also enjoyed watching hockey, Coors Light, a cigarette, and fishing. He was passionate about food and enjoyed watching his kids play sports.

Peter will be sadly missed by the mother of his children Claudelle Murphy; children: Emma Murphy and Ian Murphy; parents Leo Murphy and Anne Murphy (nee Sullivan) of Grand Falls; siblings: James (Irene) Murphy, Helen (Paul) Harris, and Neil (Tina) Murphy; aunts: Colleen (Bill) Crawley (nee Murphy), Clare Murphy, Mary Murphy, Geraldine Griffin, Mary (Bill) Hayward, Ruth Sullivan, and Diane Curran; uncle Joe (Darlene) Sullivan, and special friend Peter Noseworthy.

A Viewing will be held on Friday, November 24, 2017 from 10:00-12:00pm, at Oliver’s Funeral Home in Grande Prairie (10005 107 Ave.).

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017, at 2:30pm, at Oliver’s Funeral Home.

Memorial donations may be made to the Murphy family to assist in alleviating expenses at this time.
