Edward Charles Murphy, age 42. A graduate of Pace University, he started his business career as an independent commodities trader. He joined Martin Bierbaum International in 1988 as a broker and rose to Vice President. In 1994 he joined Noonan Astley & Pearce as Vice President and Broker.

Ed was a life-long resident of Clifton, New Jersey. He was the Chairman of the Clifton Traffic Safety Commission and is the former Grand Knight of the Regina Mundi Council of the Knights of Columbus. An avid marathon runner, he competed in the New York City and Boston marathons.
Although Ed was a tough negotiator, he had a heart of gold for family, friends and animals. He volunteered for many charitable causes and was a supporter of the arts. With what little free time he had, he could be found on a golf course anywhere in the country. He loved to travel, particularly to the American Southwest where he researched and collected regional art and “investigated” local golf courses.
Ed is the son of the late Daniel J. Murphy and is survived by his mother, Evelyn Murphy of Clifton, his brothers, Rev. Daniel W. Murphy of Sparta, NJ, and Richard E. Murphy and sister-in-law, Barbara of Boston, and his nephew, Ryan L. Murphy of Hoboken, NJ.
