Obituary

With great sorrow, the family of Robert Eugene Murphy regrets to inform of his passing on Saturday May 2, 2020 from a long illness. Robert E. Murphy, 83 of Wolcott, was the loving husband of Maryann (Allain) Murphy for 62 years. He was born to the late Elmer E. and Agnes (McLean) Murphy on July 23, 1936 in Waterville, ME. Robert was a beloved father to Bret Murphy and his partner Joanna Flynn (and Joanna’s daughter Mara) of NC. And daughter Erin (Murphy) Faraci and husband Scott Faraci. He also leaves his grandsons Maxwell Murphy, Cooper Murphy, and Giovanni Faraci. Bob was predeceased by brothers Ralph A. and Richard C. Murphy. Sisters Edna Murphy and husband Will Demers and Mary (Murphy) Willis and husband Michael, along with numerous nieces and nephews remain to fondly remember and morn his passing. Also, to remember him, sister-in-law Roberta Allain who baptized Bob into the Catholic faith and sisters-in-law Beverly (Boero) Murphy and Erline (Christie) Murphy. Throughout his life, Bob exhibited a passion for good hard work, integrity, and his talent for “reading” other people accounted for his success in business (Bob Murphy Mason LLC) and life. He was an artist that prided himself in perfection working with brick and stone as well as the paintings and prints his family and friends have so admired. Bob also was very modest refuting any praise, but very proud of his family and their many achievements. He was an avid NASCAR enthusiast that grew from many years in his youth spent with his head inside the hood of a car. He loved jazz, country music, children, dogs, and life. Note from daughter Erin to her father Bob…” Thank you are two words that literally have no value for a man who’s done it all. Words can never justify all that you’ve done for me. All I can say is that Dad, My Hero you will always be.” Calling Hours will be Thursday, May 7, 2020 from 5-7pm at DuPont Funeral Home, 25 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, CT. Due to the social distancing regulations currently in place, five people will be allowed in the room. The immediate family members will be in the viewing room, so you can pay your respects. Face masks or face coverings are required. A graveside service with Father Alphonse Fontana will be held Friday, May 8, 2020 at 11am, at St. Joseph Cemetery in Bristol, CT. Immediate family members and the priest will be standing at the plot during the ceremony. Funeral attendees will be asked to stay in their cars until the priest leaves. At that time, family and friends can walk to the burial plot to pay their respects while practicing social distancing.
