Matthew Murphy

d. August 20, 2018

Matthew John Murphy, 54, of Austin, Minnesota, passed away on Monday, August 20, 2018 at his home. Matthew was born Nov. 18, 1963 in Austin, Minnesota to John and Judith Murphy. He grew up in Austin and graduated from Austin High School. He attended Riverland Votech. He worked for Maloney Standard for several years, 23 years for Carney Auto, and the last two years for Bellisio Foods. Matthew was a caring person. Many called him “Murph-Man.” He lived with and took care of his grandmother for 25 years so she could remain in her own home. He brought a stray momma cat home from Carneys and ended up with three of them. He enjoyed helping his friend, Deven Sutter when Deven was racing cars. He liked fishing, hunting, golf, and playing guitar. He was always good to ask for advice on car repairs. We will miss him. Matthew is survived by his mother, Judith Murphy; a sister; two nephews; niece and great nephew; aunts; uncles; and cousins. He is preceded in death by his father, John L. Murphy; a brother, Mark L. Murphy; maternal grandmother, Mildred Schradle; paternal grandparents, Willard and Irene Murphy. A Memorial Service will be held 10 am on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at Mayer Funeral Home with Cory Goetz officiating. Friends may call one hour before the service at Mayer Funeral Home on Thursday. Interment will be in Oakwood Cemetery. Condolences may be left online at www.mayerfh.com
