I am so sorry for your loss. I worked in Surgery and could always count on Phil to help problem solve what every came up. You knew he cared about his staff and he cared about the patients we all took care of. He was a great supporter of the Guatemala mission. I am sure there were supplies that found their way to Guatemala because of his generosity and the willing help of his staff. We will miss you Phil.

Phil was the kindest, most approachable man you could know. He took exceptional pride and ownership in his trade, no problem too small, and always with a warm smile. His reputation as a go-to guy for problem solving was widespread, but his friendships were far reaching as well.... there are many heavy hearts at his place of employment, for loss of this generous one-of-a-kind person. He will be so sorely missed.
