My father Rod Phillips thought the world of John who was a student of his in woodwork at Central. A group of us discussed the list of who were "Rod's Boys". John always came up on that special list as did other men such as Harold Trevithick, Bill Serf ling, Lew DeAngelo just to mention a few. May God be with you and Bless you at this time. Curt
