Kenneth E. Murphy

December 24th, 2019

On Christmas Eve, 12-24-2019, Kenneth Eugene Murphy went to heaven to meet his God and his wife Julianne. He was surrounded by his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. His death was peaceful and full of love.

Murph was born on August 25, 1930 to Patrick J. and Anna (Billie Bauba) Murphy.  He served as a Fire Control Officer in the US Navy from August 1947 through September 1951.

On October 31, 1953, he married Julianne (Duchak) Murphy. They were blessed with one son, Kenneth Murphy (Karen), and 5 daughters, Julianne "Sissie" (Don) Moore, Andrea (Mark) Lozano, Annette (Jim) Sosnowski, Patricia "Patty" Murphy Siwinski and Alison Murphy.  Grandfather of 12 and great-grandfather of 8. Brother to Dean Murphy and Gloria Laff.

Ken grew up in The Back of the Yards neighborhood and was a member of the Seneca Chiefs social club for many years.

It was only late in life that he formed a strong relationship with his God and wanted everyone to know he was a born again Christian and how blessed his life was.
