WATERBURY - Edward Francis Murphy Sr., age 77, of Waterbury, passed away peacefully at Cheshire House Health Care Facility, on September 19, 2023. He was the beloved husband of Marie Veillette Murphy for 40 wonderful years.

Ed earned an Associate’s Degree in business management from Post College and continued his X-ray career at Gaylord Rehabilitation Hospital in Wallingford, CT.
