Phil was one of my father's good friends and fellow historian. As my father got older and had some anxiety about driving on the freeway, Phil routinely drove him to Westerners International meetings. He and my father (John Robinson) shared a mutual love of local history and books. He spoke at my father's service when he passed and was very helpful and kind to us and kept in touch. He will be missed!

Phil,

We first met over 15 years ago when we were serving on the United Methodist Archives Committee. You shared a couple of books you wrote about OC Methodist churches and I was so impressed. I could relate to your passion about history. Then we met again at the Ramona Pageant. And finally, you shared your knowledge at the Homestead Museum, where I now work. You will be missed on so many levels. I’m so blessed our paths crossed.

Phil,

You left an delible mark some of the key places in Southern California. You were a great host at LVSR. For that, I am thankful for your contributions as I don’t think you can ever be replaced. As a result, you’ll be solely missed. RIP.

My most profound condolences to your family during this difficult time.

Eric
