The ebullient Murphy – as he was known – was a huge character at the popular Bonaire dive resort, and had been a fixture on the dive team since March 1993. I met him on several occasions over the past 20-odd years, and he was warm, funny, articulate and always had time for a chat.

He wasn't only our colleague, but a dear friend and one of the most-positive people we knew. He will be deeply missed, and we wish his family and friends a lot of strength during this difficult time'.
