In Loving Memory Of
Cameron Morrin Murphy Sr
December 5, 1935 ~ June 18, 2022

Pointe-du-Chêne, NB – Cameron Morrin Murphy, 86, passed away suddenly at his residence, on June 18, 2022.

He was the son of the late Robert Morrin and the late Ida Mae Murphy (Cameron).

Cameron will be greatly missed by his close friend and companion: Bernice Hebert of Moncton; his children: Marilyn Irene Murphy of Valleyview, AB, Cameron Morrin Murphy Jr. (Sherry) of Shediac NB and Shawn Lee Murphy (Angela) of Fredericton NB; his grandchildren: Lee (Carly) of Alberta, John (Molly) of Alabama, Brandon (Dana) of Alberta, Anthony of NB, and Courtney (Nathan) of NS; his great grandchildren:

Darby, Kamryn, Josephine, Rachel, Rhyder, Mirric, Lincoln and Arabella; his sister-in-law: Anne; also by several nieces and nephews.

Cameron was predeceased by his loving wife of 60 years: Mary Louise Murphy (Vidito); his daughter: Cathy Olena Mae Murphy; his brothers: Bob, Donnie (Thelma) and Edgar (Marg).

For those who had the pleasure of meeting Cam Sr, you know how much of a nice man and “people person” he was. He absolutely loved meeting people and sharing stories with family and friends. Total strangers soon became close friends. He was always happy, and he could often be heard singing his favorite songs.

Cam Sr spent 20 memorable years as an accomplished Airframe Technician in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) at the rank of Corporal. He was awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration and NATO Decoration. Postings included Shearwater NS, Greenwood NS, Comox BC and several overseas duties which took him to the countries of Germany and Scotland. He has cranked wrenches and turned screwdrivers on multiple Canadian Forces aircraft to include the CF-86 Sabre, CF-101 Voodoo, and CP-107 Argus. He was very proud of his service which could be seen by the flying of the Canadian and RCAF flags on his property.

After repairing and shining aircraft in the RCAF, he began shining diamonds with G.B. Murphy Jewellers, Mappins, and La Mine d’Or. His exceptional people person skills allowed him to become a highly respected manager and top notch salesman within the jewelry business. Interacting with people was a perfect fit when he was asked to be a customer greeter at the Big Stop restaurant in Salisbury. He often joked that he couldn’t believe that he was getting paid to talk with people; his perfect retirement job. During retirement Cam and Mary could be found Snowbirding for some 15 years in their 5th wheel.

Cam Sr’s wishes were to not have a funeral however, the family will have a small Graveside Service at the Lakeside cemetery in Lakeville, NB where Cam and Mary’s ashes will rest together.

  10. Cam, I only knew you for a few years and they went by too fast. I will miss our Thursday mornings at MacDonalds with JC. Needless to say also clubbing at the Boisehebert on Friday nights. Myself and Pam say goodbye for now. We extend our deepest condolences to your children and extended family. You may not be with us in person but always in spirit.

  13. Cam, I’m very saddened by the unexpected passing of your Dad. The obituary was very well done as it clearly showed what a kind, friendly man he was. I regret that I did not make a point of dropping in to say hello as we drove by on our bikes the past couple of summers. You must be so proud to share his name.

  14. Met Cam and Bernice at their neighbors a few years ago, and was fascinated with how full of fun and energy, enjoying life to the fullest. He and Bernice have left a mark with me, that that was how I wanted to live my life, to the fullest. What nice and decent people! I am so grateful to have met them both. My deepest condolences to his family, and Bernice.

  15. I have known your father since we were kids on O’Brien Avenue. The street doesn’t exist anymore but I’m sure he’s told you about it. We stayed in touch over the years, especially after he started working in jewellery, and when he and your mother lived in Lakeside and then moving to Shediac. He often asked about our son who is also retired from the Air Force as a chief warrant officer. The two of them have met and had interesting conversations. Our son says he was a true gentleman. We have had intentions of visiting Cam but when we have driven by, there always were cars in the yard and we didn’t want to intrude. I wish we had. There aren’t many left as kind and caring as Cam. He will be missed by everyone who had the honour of knowing him.

  16. Our sincere condolences to the family. Cam was my first employer in 1972 at G.B. Murphy’s. He was kind, respectful, encouraging, honest and always greeted everyone with his contagious smile. When we moved to Pointe-du-Chene we met again and remained friends with him and Mary. We consider ourselves fortunate to have met this positive, kind and gracious man.

  17. My sincere condolences to the family. Cam was a dear and kind friend. We had a good time working together at La Mine d’Or and he always had a big smile.I will miss our talks and hugs.
    Rest In Peace my friend.

  18. Another lesson in not putting things off. Cam was my favorite male cousin. We lived in different parts of the the country, Cam and Mary in N.B. and I have been in Virginia for the past 31 years and before that in Boston for 42 years. But I got to family reunions over the years and then had the good fortune to meet up with Cam and Mary on a semi regular basis as they traveled back and forth from NB to Texas every Spring and Fall. My husband and I met up with them in Texas as well and they stopped here to spend the night with us as we were right on their route home. It was very special to spend time with Cam and Mary. I had not heard from him in a while and kept thinking I must give him a call. Then all of a sudden it was too late. I got news that he was gone. I’m happy he did not have a lingering illness but to go so unexpectedly is very difficult for those left to mourn him. My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time for all of us.
