Chuck Murphy's final expenses

Chuck Murphy (1982,  23rd company) died unexpectedly on August 21, 2019 of  complications of a massive heart attack.  He was 59. This campaign is to help Chuck's family with his final medical expenses. 

Chuck is survived by his wife Mandy, his daughter Cristina, his sons Michael, Sean, Kevin and Max, and granddaughter Mia.

After USNA Chuck went on to serve as a Surface Warfare Officer and was deployed to a number of locations including Somalia and the first Gulf War.  After his discharge he taught high school science (he was especially known for his physics classes), did technical writing for a defense contractor, and had just finished his doctorate in acupuncture and eastern medicine.

The brotherhood forged between Chuck and I at the Academy lasted and grew over the last 37 years. Navy football will never be the same for me without Chuck and I texting back and forth sharing the game.  And I'll miss sharing USNA memories and joking about how easy mids have it these days.

Let's take this last opportunity to support our brother by helping out his family.
