    Phil was a wonderful and caring husband, father, and stepfather to my sons Rob and Matt.
    We enjoyed many wonderful trips, especially our cruise with Kay (his late sister) and the Walters family
    He has 7 children so holiday gatherings were “epic ”
    May this loving man Rest In Peace
    Love and thanks for all did

  4. Fond memories of Phil. My condolences to his children, Leigh and family.

  5. I have been searching for Kay and Connie for years. We were best friends in high school then Connie met Gayle and Kay met Jeff and off they went. I don’t know what posessed me to finally look up Phillip only to be a bit too late. I remember him as being so handsome and those blue eyes were beautiful. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss and saw that Kay has passed also. I have thought of them so often over the years. My condolences to the family and if it is possible to talk with Connie it would be a dream come true. My number: 858-444-5960. Again, my heartfelt sympathy.
