Condolences for the family of “MURPHY, WILLIAM “BILL””

Condolence from Jim & Suzi Hartman on January 31st, 2013 3:18 pm

We have lost one of the truly great men of our time. A loving husband, father, grandfather, businessman, community leader and friend.

Murph made so many contributions to all the many people he met as a result of his extraordinary life in the insurance industry. By his partnership in Cash Sullivan & Cross he was and remains recognized by the Industry and his peers as one of the principal reasons for the tremendous success of CS&C. He was just plain a great guy and insurance agent. That also carried forward to his many years and friends at Arizona Country Club.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Sue and the family for their loss and want them to know we who knew Bill and also loved him share in their loss.

Bill is with his loved ones and pals, Rick, Sully, Fowler, James R, Condy and Drake are all welcoming him with open arms. Wow, not sure heaven is ready for this bunch. Who gets the tee time?

Sue, Mike, Ann and Mindy, and your families stay strong and relish in the many wonderful memories you have of Bill. Thats what he would want you to do.

Love to All,

Jim and Suzi

Dear Sue and Family,
I sincerely regret the passing of Bill. I thoroughly enjoyed the years that we were together at Phi Gamma Delta. He earned not only my friendship, but my highest respect for his character. Bill was liked and appreciated by everyone who knew him. Happy trails, Bill.
Lyle (Dutch) Kunde
