MURPHY, William Steven "Billy"- On the evening of December 9, 2023, Billy passed away peacefully at Boston Medical Center with his family by his side, after a one year battle with metastatic cancer. Billy was born at Winchester hospital on March 13, 1977, and grew up in Malden, MA. He was the beloved son of Judith May and the late William Paul Murphy, brother of Kellie Murphy and her husband Kenneth Kelly, Jr. and the late Leanne Murphy. He was the Uncle of Nicole Moniz and her husband Phillip Moniz. Grandson of the late Ruth Martha and Frederick Nickerson. Growing up Billy loved animals, especially his dog Pepper. He enjoyed listening to all genres of music, but most recently enjoyed rap music. Billy was an abstract thinker and had a great passion for writing his own raps and poems. Billy was content living a simple life, and at times when he didn't have much he was always willing to help others. Despite his diagnosis of cancer he always remained positive and optimistic. Family and friends are kindly invited to attend a Funeral Service in the Carroll Funeral Home, 721 Salem Street (Maplewood Square) MALDEN on Saturday, December 16th at 10 AM. Visiting Hours in the Carroll Funeral Home on Friday from 4-7 PM. Services will conclude with interment at Puritan Lawn Memorial Park, Peabody.
