HULL, Marian " Murphy"
Marian 'Murphy' HULL was born in Poland in 1924 and immigrated to Canada at the age of 9 during the Great Depression. He left school after only finishing grade 7 to help support his family. He joined the Canadian Navy during World War 2 and after the war became a plasterer. This early experience was an important stepping stone for Murphy in becoming one of the foremost builder/developers in Toronto. He married the love of his life Helen, in 1948. A nomination for the Order of Canada was accepted by Rideau Hall this year and was in process at the time of his death. Murphy's intelligence, integrity and work ethic created a truly remarkable life for himself and his family. In more recent years a partnership with Tridel Corporation led to many high quality condominium developments throughout Greater Toronto. His legacy, Hullmark Centre, which is to be built at the corner of Yonge and Sheppard, will be the centre piece of downtown North York. Murphy was committed to giving back to his community. He always said that Canada had been so good to him but he was also so good to Canada. He was a founding member of York Finch General Hospital, now Humber River Regional Hospital, a director for 30 years and chair of the board for 3. He was instrumental in locating the hospital at 400 and Finch. In 1968 he assisted the Director of Education in the acquisition of a building site for Seneca College. In 1975 he was a founding member of Copernicus Lodge, a Polish non-profit long term and senior self care facility. He has been a director since then, chaired the building committee and in 1993 became chair of the board. He oversaw all phases of this long term care facility with vision, leadership and superb attention to detail. He attended weekly meetings and took part in every social function that they had. He was extremely proud of the work that he and everyone involved had created. In 2002 he received the Queen Elizabeth Golden Jubilee medal. He did not allow his busy business and volunteer life to consume all of his time and was deeply committed to his family. He taught his children to ski and spent every summer with them in Georgian Bay, the 2nd love of his life. He assisted all of his children in their business endeavors. These traditions continued with his 7 grandchildren whom he and Helen took skiing every year. For years, he regularly 'tied' 7 pairs of ski boots. As a result of their grandparent's loving time and care, the grandchildren feel more like brothers and sisters. He has been generous to all of us and taught us the value of hard work and fr ugality. We will all miss him and will love him dearly forever. To all who knew him, Murphy was a force of nature. Diagnosed with cancer over a year ago, Murphy lived the last year of his life to its fullest. He passed bravely into death in his home on June 27th, 2008. He was so deeply loved by his wife Helen, son Richard (predeceased), daughters Barb and Cindy, son-in-laws David and Brian, grandchildren, Ben and his wife Stephanie, Hannah and her husband Mike, Brian and his wife Anna, Jeff and his partner Christie, Brennan, Lily, and Wilf, great-grandchildren Quinn and Oleh, sisters Adele and Bernice and her husband Morrie. The family would like to thank Doctor Ted PTAK and Doctor Sam BERGER and the staff at Humber River Regional Hospital, the staff of St. Elizabeth Home Care and Allan Hernandes-Cisne for their attentive care and support. Most importantly we would like to thank Carol and Angelo DELZOTTO for their daily devotion and love and Harvey FRUITMAN and Linda SOUDACK for their Friendship and concern. Friends may call on Sunday, June 29, 2008 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles). A Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church (24 Cheritan Avenue). Interment to follow at York Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Copernicus Lodge or Humber River Regional Hospital-Finch Site. Condolences www.rskane.ca. R.S. Kane 416-221-1159
