Phillip was a wonderful husband and father and grandfather. He was such a good soul and he was the kindest person you would have the chance to meet. He was a very caring man and his family meant everything to him. He was a person that loved life and he enjoyed everything that he did in life.

He attended/graduated Cambridge High School and worked in the wholesale industry until moving to Orlando FL. where he worked at Walt Disney World and later in retail.

Phillip and his wife moved to Carrollton, TX after retirement and lived with their daughter Tracy and her husband, Tom Caylor until his passing.

He served in the U.S. Navy on the U.S.S. Murray during his military career and received a Honorable Discharge after serving his country.

One of Phillip’s passion he truly enjoyed doing was decorating for Christmas. He was so creative and talented. Every year it became more magical and breathtaking. He would make so many decorations to add to his collection each year. He would put up the tree and it was so beautiful and the villages / garden that he would create was so magical, he decorated the whole house inside and out. It brought him a lot of joy. He would also make decorations for his friends and family to add to their collection (another family tradition).

Phillip was a kind person and was loved by all that was lucky to have met him. He will truly be missed. He was so loved and he is walking with the Angels now.
