This memorial, replete with two full-size plastic chairs, was installed at the ‘Circle’ yesterday, i.e., June 2, 2018. By far the most elaborate and extensive Roadside Memorial in Alton — and we have a few. I gather it was done by ‘Mary’, the owner of Alton’s uber-successful ‘JP China‘ Chinese restaurant. It appears that ‘Gary Murphy’ was her brother-in-law.

I did not know him. But, given that he is supposed to have operated the new Alton car wash the chances are that I have met/seen him since I have used that car wash a number of times.

The Alton ‘Circle’ is BIG and the vegetated center is in a hollow. So as you can see from some of the pictures, this roadside memorial is in that large hollow. But, it is visible from the road.

    Thank you for these beautiful pictures. Gary was something else! Certainly worth appreciating. He is sorely missed by many.
