Obituary for Philip F. Murphy, Jr.

Philip F. Murphy, Jr. loving husband of the late Jean Therese Cain, and loving father of eight children: Philip Murphy III (Yulia), Jeannie Murphy-Mittal (Jim), Michael Murphy (Debbie), the late Susan Murphy (Suzie), Eileen Murphy-Amlee (Duane), Sharon Richardson (Tim), Mary Castle (Kent), and David Murphy.

Devoted grandfather of Michael McAllister, the late Philip Murphy IV, Megan Murphy, Matt Mittal (Emily), Brett Mittal, Benjamin Mittal, Brian Skaj, Corey (Lauren) Richardson, Nicole Richardson, Nellie Richardson, Kyle Castle, Andrew Castle, Brent Castle, Ryan Castle, Katie Murphy and Casey Murphy. Proud great-grandfather of Ava Mittal. Loving brother of the late John J. Murphy, the late Kathleen (the late John) Hanrahan, recently deceased Sheila (Jack) Knight, and Ellen (Gerry) Van Westrienen.

Phil was proud to serve in post-WW II Japan as a military policeman (entering the service at the ripe old age of 16) and to serve for a time as President of the Illinois Trucking Association. Notably, his entire working career was in the trucking industry, but he couldn’t drive a big rig truck. He could drive a golf club, though, and hit three holes in one during his lifetime. After retiring from management in the trucking industry, Phil established the very successful trucking company, M&M Services, and served as its owner-operator.
