Born and raised in Binghamstown, Co. Mayo as the oldest of ten children, Richard left home in 1971 to work for the Department of Agriculture in Maam Valley. He met Susan in Roundstone, Co. Galway in 1972 and they were married the following year. After moving to Kent, England, Richard and Susan decided to relocate to New England in 1974. Richard initially worked at Boston Wire & Cable before purchasing his own business. In 1986, Richard started Richard Murphy Construction in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Richard found his second home along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and enjoyed nothing more than having his extended family gather at the lake. During his time in New England, Richard made frequent trips to visit family in Ireland and his final wish was to be buried at home by the sea.
May Richard's Kind and Gentle Soul Rest in Peace.
