July 3, 1920 – November 28, 2019
Philip lived most of his 99 years vibrantly healthy, owing to his deep Spiritual commitment to the Lord, a deep love for his wife Dolores and his love of gardening and the fruits of this labor. Philip concocted fruit juice and salad medleys for any guest who would partake. He was especially renowned in latter years as the Pineapple baron of Admirals Cove. Like many Italians from New York, this all began in small boxes and tiny plots of soil next to his Brooklyn home. He of course also whipped up Italian delicacies of all types in the kitchen, to the delight of his family and friends. His good taste and cuisine mastery were part of what swept Dolores off her feet soon after they met. But of course, his good looks and genuine Godliness were the clinchers. He was a man after God's own heart, and he certainly lives on the hearts of all those who have known and loved him.
He is survived by the love of his life Dolores, his devoted grandson James and wife Yammi, four stepchildren Anthony, Robert, Diana and Linda, precious grandchildren Christina, Victoria, Philip, Paul, Anais, Gina, Mia, and Dominic, his first great grandchild Luke Philip and dear sister Millie and brother-in-law, Jack.

When I would come visit my mom over the years she'd always be concerned whether I'd eaten. She always wanted to feed me. Once she was married to Phil I had two people doing that. Visits were always quite fattening. On the other hand their love and affection neutralized the calories. At least I wasn't concerned because I knew I was in a house full of love.
