My deepest sympathy's for the entire family. He will not be forgotten. May God hold you all in his hand during this difficult time.

You will be missed by many MY FRIEND!

There are no words to truly convey the depth of my sadness and sense of loss. Lori, Courtney, Cassandra, John, Jessica, Gia and family, you all have my sincere and deepest condolences. Over the years we didn’t always see Phil or speak often, but when we did, it was always as though no time had passed. Phil was kind, genuinely warm, hospitable and friendly. He had a quick wit and had a sharp, sometimes wicked sense of humor that could bridge the gap of any awkward moment and turn any potential enemy into a loyal friend. To know Phil was to love Phil. Phil was much loved and was a loyal friend to me and to so many. Goodbye for now Phil. You will be missed more than words can express and loved beyond measure by many.
