I remember Bro. Philco from Mt. Zion Baptist Church as a quiet, dedicated, talented, big-hearted, polite, gentle-spirited Christian man. He was all "Heart" in his participation at church. I know he is with the Lord because his walk was evidence of his relationship with Him. RIH...Bro. Philco; you have finished your assignment here on earth.
Prayers and sincere condolences for the family as you comfort each other...remember God will take care of you during this difficult season of life.

Well done good and faithful servant. Goodbye old friend. I’ve known Philco (Ford) as I called him, My entire life. We played together at chestnut walnut and later worked together at Inland Container. Philco could play almost every instrument but was a humble soul. Just good people he will be missed but never forgotten. My prayers are with Family. God Bless you all.

Mr.Philco was an all around awesome man who truly knew how to play that 🎸 .I remember so many times when we were in C.K.Newsome choir and he would play that guitar and make you want to stop singing and just listen to him play. Sending Mrs.Cheryl and family my sincere condolences, always remember what a great husband, father and grandfather you were blessed with.Rest now Mr.Philco from labor to reward.
