J. Patrick "Pat" Murphy – 77, Portapique. It is with great sadness that we announce Pat’s passing on Friday, February 16, 2024, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Halifax, he was the son of the late Reg and Lillian (Parsons) Murphy.

As a young man he joined the Canadian Armed Forces and was a member of the Black Watch. After his service, Pat spent many years in automotive equipment sales.

Together they enjoyed traveling the Caribbean, most especially Cuba. Upon retirement they enjoyed living at their property on the Cobequid Bay. Pat enjoyed puttering in his garage and spending time with family.
