To the family of Phillip,
A friendship that has lasted 70 long yrs. He was the first person I met in SC & he befriended me immediately! He led me down many paths, some were wonderful & some we won't talk about!
Fond memories are that of smoking corn silks & Mr & Mrs K's Viceroy's out in the field behind the house. Then one time we took the white 56 Chevy out the driveway down Bristol Rd & then sneaking it back b4 his Dad had to go to work. I was best man in his wedding & I always thought I was the best man anyway, of course that is a matter of opinion. I love all the Ketchmark's. Sad I am in MO. & couldn't attend the funeral. RIP Phil.

Phil , I will never forget all the time that I spent at your house growing up. You taught me as best as you could to play the guitar , and that in itself took hours . You were more then a neighbor , You was a second dad to many . I know when I was brought home from the hospital as a newborn you were there and continued to be for the next 54 years of my life . You always had the best advice to give a teenager and even as they turned into a adult . I will cherish the memories of you and all the knowledge I received from you always .... Rest in Peace Phil you will be missed . Love Kris
