Passed on: July 17th, 2012
son of the late Terry and Gladys Murphy, passed away in Vancouver on July 17, 2012 with his family by his bedside. He was a few days short of his 57th birthday. Terry was the middle brother of five brothers Greg, Fabian, Ed and Gerard. He had one sister Debbie. Terry was a very athletic individual enjoying hockey, rugby and track in his youth. He was an avid outdoor enthusiast and animal lover. Terry had a cutting sense of humour, a twinkle in his eyes that was an indicator of his mischievousness and a commanding presence. Terry had many friends in Newfoundland and on the Mainland but he loved his homeland and was very proud of his Newfie heritage. Terry will be sadly missed by his brothers, sister, sister-in-law Anne, brother-in-law Fred, his nephews Jason, Kris, Greg, his many friends and relatives.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow.....
I am the diamond glints of snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you waken in the mornings hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush
Of circling birds in gentle flight.....
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry-
I am not there... I did not die
