John J Dunphy

John J. Dunphy, 83, of Middletown, NJ, died on May 6, 2017 at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, NJ. He was born in Brooklyn, NY to the late John and Bernadette (nee Dillon) Dunphy. John proudly served in the U.S. Coast Guard, after which he started a 39 year career for NYNEX (now Verizon). He was very family oriented with an extremely big heart, as well as an extraordinarily proud father and grandfather. Outwardly, he was a quiet, reserved man, but to his family his love was unquestionable. He was also kind, with a great sense of humor. He was a parishioner of St. Mary’s Church and spent many years at the Adoration Chapel.

Surviving are his wife of 60 years, Maryrose Dunphy; his daughter and son-in-law, Mary Jean Dunphy and John Montefusco; his son and daughter-in-law, Christopher John and Karen Dunphy; his daughter, Katherine Dunphy; his daughter and son-in-law Jacquelyn and Gary Gretsky; and his four grandsons, Philip Dunphy-Montefusco, Matthew, Kevin, and Ryan Dunphy.

A Memorial Mass will be offered on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 10:30 am at St. Mary’s Chapel, 26 Leonardville Rd., Middletown.
