Joe was one of my best friends. When I got transferred to Atlanta in 1980 Joe could see I somewhat green. Joe took me under his wing and taught me the ends and outs of the business. We traveled many miles together and had some great adventures. I will always treasure his friendship and generosity.

Joseph A. Murphy


Joseph “Joe” Murphy passed away at home on Amelia Island, Thursday, February 1, 2024. He was born in New York City, New York. While on Amelia Island he met and married Marlene Jones Murphy with her two young sons, James and Brandon Mimbs. Joe and Marlene were married 43 years.
Marlene’s children are James H. Mimbs (Tracey Mimbs) and J. Brnadon Mimbs (Fosha Mimbs). Joe’s three children are Joann Murphy (Richard Murphy), Barbara Murphy Hornbuckle and Robert Murphy (deceased); grandchildren are Adam Murphy (Angela Murphy), Leah Del Portillo (Armando Del Portillo), Kara Hornbuckle, Cyurus Mimbs and Canyon Mimbs as well as two great grandchildren.

Joe was in the U. S. Army and later an Ohio University graduate. He retired from Babcock and Wilcox Company, Babcock Power. Joe loved the island, sun, sailing and travelling extensively to many countries for pleasure and business. He loved people and had a treasure chest overflowing with friendships.

The Amelia Plantation Chapel, his spiritual family and Oak Point Community, where he lived for many years were a close family. The Water Wheel Cigar Shop was a most caring and sharing group. The Amelia Island Charity, who supported the Navy Seal Foundation, is in its 14th year. Another organization he was always willing to work with and help with was the Amelia Island Marauders and the River Golf Club. Joe had a true commitment to the Nassau County Council on Aging who were always there to help.

Joe has a serious and spontaneous health issue in March of 2023 and all of these and more stepped up with their boundless support of caring, friendship and love that will never be forgotten.

Joe was remembered in a celebration of his life at Amelia Plantation Chapel on Monday, February 5, 2024.
