To Brian’s family: I just heard of Brian’s passing at our 40th HS reunion. I was Brian and Dennis Sollin’s good friend in HS and after. Brian and Dennis visited me when I was in college at Ohio State. He was a great guy with a huge heart. I am so upset at his passing and was hoping to reunite with him. I am very grateful to have known him and will never forget him.

So very sorry to hear of your loss. I enjoyed having Brian as a neighbor in Newport. He always had something funny to say, and he had great stories to share.

With much pain and sadness I offer my condolences to the family of my best friend. He always repeated to me what his grandmother had told him, “when you reach the end of your life, if you can use an entire hand to count true friends, you have lived a blessed life”. Though I am short of that number, he believed he had obtained his and he let me know I had at least one. Words cannot describe how much he has taught me and changed my life. I’d like to thank God for the short time he gave me with Murph. I am so proud to have been considered a good friend. I love you buddy.
Sorry I forgot your small fries the last time I bought lunch.

Madison, Your father was one of my all time favorite people. He will never be forgotten. He loves you more than anything in the world and always told me how you were doing before he said anything else and he always had something else to say. He will be missed. If you ever need anything, look me up. Love you. Claude

It is with a heavy heart that I offer condolences to the Murphy family. Brian was a brilliant, generous, and thoughtful man who I had the pleasure of working with for over six years. His passion for politics, as well as his love of his family, will forever be an inspiration to me. Peace and love be with you all as you cope with this trying time.

My sincere condolences. I knew Brian way back when he lived in Valley Stream, NY where I met him through my cousins who lived there also. “Murph” was one of the funniest, wittiest guys I knew. Even at that age, he was a gentleman. He and one of my cousins were driving through New Jersey when the car broke down. I received a phone call and I drove out to help them. It was on I-80. None of us had any money for a tow. Brian came up with what I thought was genius. One of us would drive my car and the other two would sit on my hood. I pulled up closer and closer to the disabled car until they could put their feet on back of the car. I then drove very slowly as they held their legs out straight and we managed to push that car all the way to the end of an exit ramp and into a safe place. The New Jersey Trooper who arrived seconds later was not amused. I have a headful of memories involving Murph. Each and every one those memories is good and they still make me smile. Rest in Peace Murph.

I will always have a special place in my heart for Brian. He was like a big brother to me for a long time. Love and miss you. Sleep in peace.

at a time like this words won’t ease the pain deep in your hearts but I hope these words will in someway comfort you in knowing how much “Murph” was cared for at work and among his friends. Brian and I had several “debates” concerning our differences in political beliefs but yet he was respectful enough to listen and understand I wasn’t trying to change his party affiliation. The short time I worked with Murph I have to say honestly it was a pleasure to have known such a passionate and caring Man. He will definitely be missed by his work family as well as his own family may God open his blessings to all family members to comfort them in this time of sorrow
Rest In Peace with God
