On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, George Murphy of Winnipeg, Manitoba passed away at the age of 57, after a short battle with a brain tumour. George is survived by his wife Monique, sons Joshua (Stacy), Zachary (Ingrid), and grandson James.

Pre deceased by one sister Joan.

He is survived by parents; John and Marjorie Murphy; sisters:  Theresa (Myles) Mitchell, Eilleen (Jack) Larson;  brothers:  David (Lynn), Dan (Nadine), Andrew (Karen), Tony (Tina); Mother and Father-in-law:  Maurice and Claire Noel; Brother-in-laws:   Jean-Pierre (Mireille), Charles (Shirley), Guy (Johanne), Robert, and Paul (Sandra Pachol).  As well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

George was born and raised in Brandon, MB.  His passion for trucking led him to Winnipeg, where he met Monique Murphy (nee Noel). 

George and Monique truly became one, when they married.  They believed God gave them each other as a gift.  His commitment to their marriage included taking time each day to love on her.  George took marriage and parenting seriously as he was always looking for a way to better his marriage and parenting skills.  Monique and George were best friends and loved doing life together.  Their sons integrity, love of God, commitment to family, and strength of marriage is a product of  George and Monique’s sacrifice, commitment and love.

Shortly after marrying Monique, he moved to St. Anne, MB, where he started his family. When the kids started school, they decided to move to Winnipeg, where they settled into their newly built house.

Josh was born 1984, he was a mini George at a whopping 10lbs, 10oz!  At an early age Josh developed a love for hats which was attributed to his dad.  George was elated when Zachary was born in 1986.  At a young age Zach’s character was fashioned like his father towards people, in that he loved having a good time with others. George loved pouring his life into his boys.  He motivated them to excel in their respective sports by coaching and being their biggest fan.  The boys remember their dad as a counselor, adviser, and wise teacher as they grew from youth to adults and eventually marriage.   With open arms he accepted both Stacy and Ingrid, his daughters, of whom he was “ESPECIALLY FOND OF.”

George and Monique enjoyed many adventures together, traveling and making memories.  Last summer George was able to check off another bucket list item by travelling throughout Europe with Monique.  In addition, family camping trips were something George always looked forward to.  Family, friends, sharing stories and making new ones, is what George lived for!  Among his more joyful moments he would be found going for a cruise on his motorcycle and taking father-son trips to the mountains. He would be sure to always capture a moment to breathe in the air, take in the view, and snap a picture which he would be sure to share on face book.

 He worked for Sysco for 34 years, moving his way up from a warehouse employee to his role as Director of Merchandising.  He excelled at his work and was a huge asset to the company, due to his experience in varying positions within the company. He impacted many co-workers by caring for their personal lives and not treating them simply as co-workers. His passing will be deeply felt within the company.

George lived life to the fullest and had a deep love for God and his family. He was never ashamed to share his faith with others and remained unwavering in that, to the end. His legacy will be remembered by his faith in God which directed his life choices.

George will be deeply missed as he was a loving husband, a fantastic father, a proud grandfather, a sincere friend, and a dedicated worker.  Above all else, George was a man of integrity who loved God shamelessly.

The Funeral service will be held at Immanuel Pentecostal Church 955 Wilkes Avenue on Monday, May 8 at 2:00 p.m. with interment to follow at St. Vital Cemetery 236 River Road. 

Donations may be made in George’s memory to Focus on the Family, 19946 80A Avenue, Langley, BC, V2Y 0J8.
