In Memoriam: Brian Murphy (1943-2021)

Murphy brothers with dad

The 3 Murphy boys (l-r) Bob, Dick and Brian, with their father Robert T. Murphy on the first VJ Day in 1945.

The Rhode Island Aviation Hall of Fame family is saddened to hear of the passing of long-time supporter and friend, Brian Murphy.

We first met the three Murphy brothers (Brian, Bob and Dick) in 2011 when we inducted their father, Robert T. Murphy, who was instrumental in the drafting of many federal statutes relating to air safety, air transportation, and related economic issues.. They have been big supporters ever since.

Our condolences go out to the entire Murphy family. Please see his full obituary here:
