Murphy recently worked for Roice Construction in Gibsonia, PA; and formerly for B&T Construction in Niagara Falls, NY where he was a sitework contractor, heavy equipment operator & Foreman. He loved outdoor activities including; snowmobiling, skiing, hiking and fishing (which he adored sharing with his brother Connor); and golfing with “Papa” Cummings and his uncles. Murphy most especially loved driving anything with an engine – from large construction equipment to motorcycles. It cannot be overstated, that Murphy absolutely loved and cherished spending time with family and friends – to include his dog Komatsu (Zu). Anyone who ever met him, loved him for his happy, confident, funny, and loving personality. While Murphy had many friends, especially dear to him were Mike and Laurel Macher, Kelli Macher, Gabbi Macher and Rege Scholl.

His friends and family describe him as someone who has always showed up as his true authentic self for any and every circumstance in life, the type of friend who helped someone out because he-can with no questions or judgement, he was everyones favorite, he was the best of us, to know him was to love him, Genuine is the word we see repeated by a lot of recent posts honoring Murphy. He loved a campfire surrounded by friends, laughter and good stories. He had great values and a huge heart and said that his purpose in life was to help others. He will be loved and missed by so many.
