So sorry to hear about this. John was a super nice guy and man with a lot of patience. Enjoyed watching him work with the kids in the instructional league at Turners. He never got upset. A great guy. RIP John.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I am related to the Murphy family although I have never known any of them as Helena gave my mother up for adoption as an infant. My grandmother was Helena Mae Murphy, daughter of John Morgan Murphy. My mother was Virginia Burroughs Haas Dinser. Sorry for all of the information, I just wanted to say hello and to offer my sincere condolences to all. Take care. May he rest in Peace.
