Acton, MA

Phillip E. Murphy, 61, of Acton, MA and formerly of Reading, MA, passed away on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019. He was the beloved husband of 26 years to Mary Ellen Savoia Murphy and is also survived by two children, Kara and Benjamin Murphy, both of Acton, MA; his parents, George and Joanne (O’Brien) Murphy of Peabody, MA; his 5 brothers, Paul Murphy of Peabody, MA, Ross Murphy and wife Wendy of Danvers, MA, Mark Murphy and Robert Murphy both of Peabody, MA, Sean Murphy and wife Mary Ellen of North Andover, MA; two sisters, Laurie Murphy of Peabody, MA, Julie Murphy of Lynn, MA; his mother-in-law, Nancy Savoia of Winthrop, MA; his two sisters-in-law, Fran Devitt and husband Les, Theresa Scalzi and husband PJ, all of Concord, MA along with many nieces and nephews.

Phillip was born in Brunswick, GA. He was raised in Peabody and was a 1976 graduate of St. John’s Preparatory School in Danvers, MA.
