MURPHY, C. Francis, Q.C.
Frank MURPHY died August 13, 2003 at St. Paul's Hospital from complications following pneumonia. He is survived by his loving wife, Jean, and his children, Caroline, Elizabeth, Adrienne (Peter HOLMGREN,) John (Leslie LEE,) Frances and Sarah, and his grandchildren, Anna HOLMGREN, Jacqueline MURPHY and Robert MURPHY. Frank and Robert were special companions. Frank is survived as well by his brothers Bud, Cal and Louis, his sister Josie BENZ, and many nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his parents and his sisters, Mary COSTELLO and Pat MURPHY. Frank was devoted to his family and deeply committed to his community. Frank was born in 1929 in Calgary and lived most of his life in Vancouver. He loved Vancouver for its beauty and the opportunities it presented. He graduated from high school at Vancouver College in 1945, and graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Laws in 1950. He articled at and then practised with Campney, Owen, Murphy and Owen from 1951 to 1958. He then joined Farris, Stultz, Bull and Farris, which evolved into the firm Farris, Vaughan, Wills and Murphy. He was the managing partner there from 1978 until his retirement in 1992. He remained as associate counsel until his death. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1984. Frank practised primarily in areas of corporate and commercial law. He particularly enjoyed his involvement in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. He sat on many corporate boards, including British Columbia Gas Inc., Mitsui Company of Canada Ltd., Northwest Life Assurance Company, Pacific Petroleum Ltd., Westcoast Transmission, Kelly Douglas, Alberta Distillers, and Loomis (Mayne Nickless). Frank was on the board of many non-profit organizations, including the Vancouver Art Gallery, Canadian Red Cross Society, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Holy Family Hospital and St. Paul's Hospital. Frank was for many years on the board of the Catholic Children's Aid Society, serving as president from 1973 until 1980. It was an association of which he was particularly proud. Frank was active in the Canadian Bar Association and was president of the Commercial Law Section for two years. He was heavily involved in the International Bar Association and from 1972 to 1982 he was the Canadian representative to its Council. Frank's work with this organization gave Jean and him great opportunities to travel. Frank was a student of the world, interested and knowledgeable about history and world affairs. Each of his children has fond memories of trips, both at home and abroad, taken with their father. From 1995 to 2000, Frank served on the International Joint Commission, a binational Canada-United States organization. This experience gave him further opportunity to travel, including to many smaller communities in both the United States and Canada, which were experiences he enjoyed just as he did his trips to those destinations that are more traditionally favoured. In keeping with his great interest in his community, Frank was involved in politics and government affairs. He was of a liberal mind and was a member of the Liberal Party of Canada. He participated at all levels of the political process side by side with Jean and Friends, more frequently at the federal level and in particular in the riding of Vancouver-Quadra. Frank's greatest love was his family. He was a loyal and supportive son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. Frank's house at Point Roberts, certainly his favourite place on this earth, is a site of especially treasured memories. Frank was keenly involved with his children's activities. He inspired his children and others with his curiosity, his physical and intellectual energy and his commitment to principle. He lived life fully and fearlessly. He met his final illnesses and challenges in the same manner. He died within the rites of his church and with the love of his family. He is greatly missed. The MURPHY family is greatly appreciative of the care and support Frank and his family received from the staff at the I.C.U., in particular from his final nurse, David BOOTH. The Mass of Christian Burial for Frank will take place at 11: 00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 19, 2003 at Sts. Peter and Paul's Church, 1430 West 38th Avenue, with a reception to follow at noon at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, 4300 Southwest Marine Drive. The interment will follow the reception. Prayers will take place at Sts. Peter and Paul on Monday, August 18, 2003 at 7: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the St. Paul's Hospital Foundation at Ste 164, 1081 Burrard Street, Vancouver British Columbia, V6Z 1Y6, Charitable Registration No. 11925 7939 RR0001.
