About Us


The founders of Northeast FR, Steve and Cathy Murray, were both born and raised in Maine. They met 24 years ago and have 2 teenagers who keep them very busy. Steve owned his own welding business for 15+ years and was hired as a subcontractor for work in substations. Cathy stayed home to raise the kids.

In 2006, Steve had the opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a fly fishing lodge in Labrador, Canada. He decided to purchase the lodge and subsequently sold his welding business. He then went to work as a lineman for ES Boules company, one of the oldest, largest, and most experienced electrical and telecommunications contractors in the northeastern United States. Steve then became a member of the Local 104.

For several weeks a summer the family heads to the lodge in Labrador. They enjoy the experience of spending a week with guests who come from all over the world.
