Any free time Phil had was spent in the great out doors, engaging in sports of all types, from scubadiving to skydiving, from skiing to motorcycle riding and fishing and skateboarding included. He was the man of adventure and loved the thrill of the open air, the rock climbing and backflips, the sunrises and the sunsets, and a chance to be with the family he loved and the many friends he shared his life with. Phil was intelligent, funny, friendly and absolutely loved to make people laugh and enjoyed life just the way he found it. There were no strangers in his life, only friends he hadn’t met yet. He was happiest when surrounded by his family and especially his adored children, Kristene, Zach, Jackson and Sawyer. He adored them and loved to keep up with their many activities and adventures. On April 2nd, 2016, he met and married his best friend, Rosita Maria Sutherland in Belize, Central America. The family relocated to the Tahlequah area, and it was while here that Phil’s health began to fail him. For all the many adventures he had yet to try, he passed from this life on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 in Tahlequah, Ok, surrounded by those who knew and loved him most. He was 60 years old and will be greatly missed.
