Robert E. Murphy

Robert E. Murphy of Bloomington, Minn., age 73, died April 17, 2020. Rob was born in Rhinelander and was a graduate of the University of Minnesota where he was an active member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity. He worked for many years at IBM in sales and sales management and then was part-owner of a business equipment company.

Rob was an avid golfer and member at Minnesota Valley Country Club for many years. He also loved horse racing. He loved his family and friends and delighted in phoning friends on a regular basis to remind them of favorite stories.

Rob is survived by his wife of 37 years, Judy, and children, Melissa Olmscheid (Lee) and Robert K. Murphy; stepchildren Telari Bohrnsen (Will) and Peter Hart; grandchildren Nico Olmscheid, Megan Olmscheid, Nola Bohrnsen, and Alaena Bohrnsen.

Family and friends will deeply miss the twinkle in his eye, his infectious humor, and the unbridled enthusiasm he brought to the things and the people he cared about.

There will be no memorial service due to the Covid19. Memorials preferred to Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation, 10990 State Hwy 73, Pittsville, WI 54466,

Rob was a special guy. One of the 'little kids'. Lots of good Rhinelander memories. So sorry to hear of his passing. Rest in peace Robby.
