David Lawrence Murphy, 87, of Wells, formerly of Somerville, died suddenly on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at York Hospital in York, ME. He was born in Haverhill, MA on August 9, 1931, a son of Patrick Dennis and Mary A. (Bresnehan) Murphy.
On April 22, 1951, he married Margaret "Peggy" Adele Travalini. They celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary earlier this year.
David was the owner of D.L. Murphy and Son Plumbing in Belmont, MA for many years. In the late 1970's, he began a new career in condominium construction in Massachusetts. In keeping with his knowledge of construction, in his free time, he enjoyed crafting birdhouses, and especially loved spending time with his grandchildren.
Having summered in Ogunquit for several years, David and Peggy retired to Maine permanently in 1995. He was a member of the former Dante Club in Somerville, and the 100 Club.
David is predeceased by two sons, David L. Murphy, Jr., and John Francis Murphy; his sister, Kathryn Koeck; two brothers, Edward Murphy and John Francis Murphy.
He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Margaret "Peggy" A. Murphy of Wells, ME; his daughter, Cheryl Brussard and husband George of Plympton, MA; two brothers, Dennis R. Murphy of Ocala, FL, and George P. Murphy of NH; three grandchildren, Eric Brussard of Somerville, MA, Jeanine Fleury and husband Peter, Katelyn Murphy; and two great grandchildren, Clara and Cora Fleury.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at a later date.
