Matthew Murphy

Originally from Scottsdale Arizona, Matthew Murphy, a nomad who spent much of his later years on the East Coast, ended his adventures on July 1, 2023, as he was granted his eternal rest.  He was 43 years old and is mourned by his siblings, Michelle, Kenneth, and Ryan; and his nieces and nephew, Helena, Gianna, Jack, Annabel, and Celia, who will forever cherish their Uncle Matt. 

Matt gained purpose, direction, and personal pride during his stint in the US Army. The Iraqi war veteran rose to the rank of Sergeant and earned a Purple Heart for wounds received in action, as well as numerous Army Commendation Medals for courage throughout his tours. Like many of his fellow combat heroes, the transition to civilian life challenged Matthew.  However, his affability persevered, buoyed by a self-deprecating sense of humor and winsome heart. 

Matt loved to take his nephew and friends to the movies, sushi, and rap music. Matthew also held a special place in his heart for dogs, especially his two beloved American Pit Bull Terriers.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to either Sean Casey Rescue or Badass Animal Rescue, both Brooklyn-based dog rescues. 

 Please join Matt’s family and friends on Thursday, July 6, 2023, at Cobble Hill Chapel from 4:00 to 7:00 to celebrate his love-filled life.  Arrangements for his final resting place at a war veterans’ cemetery are to be determined in the near future.

Sofia Maisonet

Sofia (Fina) Maisonet was born Sofia Garcia in Naguabo,Puerto Rico on April 30th, 1939.

She met the love of her life Albert (Papa Boly) Maisonet, her late husband, through a family member that set them up on a date.  Fina is survived by her four children, Tammy, Nelly, Victor and Albert, 10 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.  Her children and family can attest to the fact that she had “the patience of a saint” and never lost her temper with them or even raised her voice.  Our mom was always supportive and encouraging, always wise and kind, and very proud of her children. She loved to cook for her family and crochet blankets for all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She always sacrificed her needs for the good of her family. Fina will be remembered as a selfless mother who always had a smile, even when times were tough. She had a quiet strength, never complained and always looked to a better future.

Fina has a strong Catholic faith and did her rosary every day. When she was diagnosed with bladder cancer several months ago until her passing into heaven she did not cry, get mad or go into depression. Instead she loved and lived every moment she was given, neither hard times nor cancer would rob her of who she was.  Always graceful, until God called her home.

“ I fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”
