Happy Birthday tjmurphy

Post by doglegg »

Didn't know Mr. Murphy but he sure left an impression here. And he was a lover of Camillus 72's so I thought it might be good to remember him on his birthday.

Tom was also quite a collector of TL-29s. We often completed for the same knives on eBay. He was great guy, I miss him a lot.

It was a pleasure to know him as a cyber friend.
We exchanged/gifted some knives a few times even had the forum going once when we posted a picture of his grave, several years before he passed.
A good sport indeed! ::tu::

Tom was a Vietnam veteran, as well.

An accomplished multi-instrumentalist and a very pattern focused knife collector.

I miss him.
