Name and family members:  I’m Luke Nathaniel Murphy and I live with Stacy Murphy (mom), John Utz (step-dad), my sisters Shannon and Sam, two dogs (Lana & Gus), two cats (Salt & Pepper) and I have two older step sisters (Em & Rachel Utz) who are out of the house but still hang out a lot.

Why did you move to TP?  I didn’t have a choice.  My parents moved here from Burch Ave. when I was four months old.The one thing I like best about TP is… It’s not a cookie cutter suburb.  It’s a historic neighborhood, close to downtown, with interesting architecture.  It’s a real community with nice, friendly people.

Occupation:  Plumbing, heating and air

If I could improve one thing about TP, it would be…. I would increase the number of local businesses within the neighborhood, like the original Watts Grocery store.  I wish there were less tear downs.  Trinity Park is filled with beautiful historic homes.  You can’t just go out and pay someone to make you a historic home.
