SOUTHWEST HARBOR- Travis R. Murphy, 36, died unexpectedly on January 4th, 2020. He was born October 28, 1983 in Blue Hill, the son of Ronald A. Murphy and Cindy “Lawson” Murphy. Travis attended Pemetic Elementary School and Mount Desert Island High School graduating in 2002.
Travis’s life revolved around lobster fishing. Travis started out at the age of nine with his grandfather, George Lawson. Travis fished side by side with “Pa” from 1992 to 2005 on the BELINDA L. In 2005, Travis purchased his own vessel, CINDY L, and fished her as well as fishing with his Uncle “Brud” on the “MISS BETH III”. For several years, he worked for John W. Goodwin Inc.
The pride and joy of Travis’s life was his beloved daughter, Alexa Murphy. You could see a twinkle in his eyes whenever he spoke of her. Travis is survived by his parents, Ronald and partner, Karen Burns; Cindy and partner, Michial Jewett; his daughter, Alexa; his sister, Chantel (Murphy) Flewelling and husband, Russ; a beloved niece, Logan Flewelling and beloved nephew, Reese Flewelling; special cousins, Isiah Gray and Dustin Lawson. He is survived by many uncles, aunts and cousins on both the Murphy and Lawson sides.

Travis was a student of mine at MDI High School. He knew absolutely what he wanted to do, and worked hard at anything that connected to his goals. This included PASSING BIOLOGY and, though he could have a lot to say if he didn't see the point of a specific assignment, his work was actually often excellent, and always fun to read. He wasn't used to thinking of himself as a great student but anything he put his mind to he excelled at. His spirit and humor lit up the classroom. This is a terrible loss for all of us on MDI.
