Mary & family, We are so very sorry to hear of Phil’s passing. We considered Phil a wonderful friend and we shall miss him. He was such a kind and good person.

We first met Phil & Mary through the Knights of Columbus in 2002. As our friendship grew into a small church group. We would go to breakfast after Sunday Mass; and our coffee stops at Dunkin's after daily Mass. We attended numerous KofC statewide events and dinners together. The heartfelt speech Phil gave at a Eagle Court of Honor at his old Scout Troup left attendees in tears. You could always count on Phil, whether it was for an Honor Guard, a church activity, or helping out a friend in need. Whenever the knights asked for help, Phil was there to pitch in. Phil was an original participant the eight years of the Hooksett Cribbage Club held at Holy Rosary Parish basement. Phil has always been a dear and close friend that will be greatly missed. God Bless, Joseph and Sue Kowalik.

To Mary & Phil’s family my deepest condolences. Phil & I were co-workers for many years. I have many great memories of our working together. One that I’d like to share, we would always tease Phil for his lack of willpower. He would say he was on one of his many diets giving up sweets was Extremely hard for him. So when traveling back from a job site in the afternoon at times we would stop for an ice cream knowing of course Phil wouldn’t be able to resist! He would say you guys can’t tell Mary!
Phil was as honest a person as I’ve ever known and great around kids. I’ll always remember when we worked out of town during the summer my boys would join me and at night the crew would eat together around a campfire. Phil called my (eight year old )boy “Tiger”. Finally he’d had enough of that, he said to Phil, “my name is Matthew!” Phil and I had many a laugh about this over the years.

Phil and I have shared a lot of memories over the years, starting with our time together in the US Naval Reserve and continuing on during our time sharing with our brother knights in the KofC. My wife and I have always enjoyed sharing experiences with both him and and his lovely wife Mary. We are grateful for the time we have shared with both of them over the years. His gentle humor and presence shall be sorely missed. John & Bonnie Gomez
