Jeff A. Murphy, age 54 of Saint Petersburg, passed away on Monday, September 26, 2022 at his home. He was born on September 27, 1967, to Katherine (Mick) and the late Marty Murphy in Marion, Ohio.

He worked as a pool installer for Latham Corporation for 16 years, a job he truly enjoyed, and he was known to have a knack for installing mosaic pool liners. He loved bowling, golf, and his family.

He is survived by his mother Katherine “Kathy” Griffith; his siblings Bill (Mickey) Griffith, Sue (Rick) Knotts, Rodney (Lita) Griffith, and Nancy (Brad) Simpkins; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews, all of whom he loved.

He was preceded in death by his father Marty Murphy; his stepfather Ron Griffith; his brother Scott Murphy; and his grandparents Norris and Lucille Johnson, Cecil and Winnie Griffith, and Dr. Daniel and Roseanne Murphy.
