Date Honored: February 2003
In our family, Phil was a husband, a brother, a brother-in-law, an uncle and a grandfather. He was an integral part of our family…a man of honesty and integrity. Vee, his wife, knew a side of him we will never know. She has shared over 50 years with this gentle man. They grew with love and mutual respect for each other…they truly became one. He was a confidante, someone who listened to us, but did not judge us. He accepted us for who we were, not what he wanted us to be. We knew that in sharing himself, we were the ones who gained the most. We all will miss him in a thousand ways! God Bless him.
