By | Obituaries

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Stephen Murphy, 51, passed away suddenly while at his home on May 24.

Stephen was born in Rome, Italy and was a naturalized American citizen. He was

the son of the late Ann and John Murphy (from Ardara, County Donegal and Rosslare Strand, County Wexford, Republic of Ireland).

Stephen graduated from Russell Sage with honors, having earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He was well known for his work in helping those who were homeless, principally through his employment at Shelters of Saratoga (SOS) where he enjoyed much respect. His generosity of spirit and genuineness in sharing his own experiences in aid of others made him a memorable and much beloved Irishman.

Survivors include his siblings: Mary Lemp and her husband, Thomas; Dermot and his wife, Ann; Patrick and his wife, Janet; and his nieces and nephews, Maureen and Brian Lemp, Laura and Sean Murphy, and Declan Patrick Murphy. He also has many surviving relatives in Ireland.
