Christopher James Murphy

Husband

Was a fantastic character, dry sense of humour. He loved to tell stories, his friends called him grump, his family cranky, and we all loved him for being unique. His was my wonderful husband, very thoughtful, kind, I miss his crazy personality

Eulogy

Chris was my thoughtful loving partner for 13 years, and my husband for 10 months. He said our wedding was best day of his life, even though he was poorly on the day. It was and will always be the best of mine.

I loved Chris because of his understanding of diversity; he warmly and naturally embraced our culture differences. He knew from day one that my sister was my everything to me, and he loved her like his own daughter, I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with Chris, but on 11/03/2020, I realised that Chris spent the rest of his life with me. I wiped my tears and smiled because I know he loved me till the day he was called by the heavens. It was not long enough, but 13 years with Chris was worth a lifetime. My lifetime. And the stories I will tell of him which will last any lifetime.
