Obituary

Essex - John Michael Murphy, 89, passed away peacefully at his residence at Mansfield Place, Essex Jct., VT, on Saturday, February 23, 2019. He was born in Malden, Massachusetts on December 6, 1929 son of the late William Augustus and Mary Pauline (Coffee) Murphy. John was proud to have served our country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War.

John was a Professor Economics at North Shore Community College, active in the Army Reserve, volunteered for the Town of Newbury Personnel Board and was Moderator for the Byfield Water District. He was a resident of Byfield for 50 years where his children grew up. John enjoyed reading the daily newspaper and keeping up with current events, visiting bookstores and most of all spending time with his family. He also enjoyed traveling with his companion Roberta Flood, a fellow fun loving classmate from Malden High School.

John is survived by his two daughters Monica Murphy John and husband Alex of Underhill Center, Janet Murphy Madsen and husband Eric of Juneau, Alaska, four grandchildren Crystal Ketah and husband Jeff of Juneau, Alaska, Autumn Hadley of Anchorage, Alaska, Liam John of West Bolton, Vermont and Ethan John of Bozeman, Montana, two great grandchildren Dexter and Selena Ketah both of Juneau, Alaska and many nieces and nephews on the East Coast.

His family appreciates John’s loving caregivers. Michelle Collin of Amesbury MA and Donna Francis and staff at Mansfield Place in Vermont
