To the Murphy family, Our deepest condolences to you and your family. I’m sorry we where unable to attend! Mike and I have been brothers since 1974. His New Jersey transit family enjoyed spending Friday night at various places.He was loved by many people. So today with a heavy heart god bless you. I’m gonna miss but the pain is gone. Love you to the PIKE and back!!! Tom, Diane and family
Love you brother!
Mike was always someone I looked up to. I love fishing and he was a pro! My favourite memory is of a time that I had searched all the stores, even Bass Pro Shop, for this lure I was using to catch walleyes but had got it snagged and lost it. I couldn’t find that lure anywhere and I was telling Mike about it and he had it in the colour I was looking for AND every single size made! And of course he was so generous and gave me the one I was looking for. Of course I caught a walleye with it!
You’ll be missed so much Mike!
Condolences and prayers for the entire Murphy family. I know Mike is catching some giant fish in haven, I will miss all the fishing/boating talks we had over the years. If you need anything we are always right across the street. R.I.P. Mike
To Tom and your family, my thoughts and prayers will be with you. You will always have the good memories and keep the faith. Al Marsden
