Words cannot express how sorry I am for this loss. My life will never be the same because of him. Many times I would call him with a problem and he would stop what he was doing and head to Baton Rouge to give me a hand. One time that really stands out to me was one Saturday, I ran into a problem and called him. He and Laurie were in Denham Springs with some friends and he drove to Baton Rouge because I needed a hand.

I will never forget his humor and how he would always ask me, " Where's my carrot cake?" I will miss our lunches together and hear him say that all he needed after the meal was a huge piece of cake.

Laurie, thank you for sharing him with all of us here at Marriott International. We all love and miss him.

To all of you who loved Phillip, please know that his passing was truly blessed. It was instantaneous and I was assured that he did not suffer. He is exactly where he is meant to be. Please know that he is home with his heavenly father – I truly believe that with my whole heart and soul.The outpouring of love and support has been incredibly amazing. While I knew that Phillip was loved, I just didn't realize by how much. Just the shear amount of lives that Phillip touched in his life is staggering. He was an inspiration and a role model to so many. If you were lucky enough to know him you were truly blessed. He was not perfect, none of us are; however, he was about as close as you can get. Phillip is leaving behind a wonderful legacy of kindness and empathy for others, many friendships, laughter, and his wicked sense of humor. I'm so glad that Phillip was an inspiration to the many lives he touched. The word “no” was not in his vocabulary unless he was talking to me of course – even though it was rare. I never wanted for anything. He was one of the most generous people I have ever known. One of the many things I will miss most is his sense of humor. We made each other laugh daily – and that's no joke. I will miss his beautiful face and soul everyday. He left a huge gaping hole in my heart that has been shattered into a million pieces.
While you all got the best of him because he was a morning person, I got the rest of him. Nothing can touch the quality time that we shared together. Please don't be sad for too long. Let's celebrate his brief beautiful life and God willing we will all be together again. I truly believe that Phillip will be waiting for all of us on the other side.
Our motto was “strangers are just friends we haven't met yet” and that's how we rolled!Please stop and smell the roses along the way and enjoy your families and friendships because we are not promised any tomorrows. Our love is everlasting – to infinity and beyond.

The Normand Family is deeply saddened with the loss of such a sincere, kindhearted, faithful, unselfish man as Phillip. He was always there to help me and my son at Wenco Supply since His days at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
And continued to help us throughout the years even helping our family with their Air Condition problems.
Phillip was a True, Genuine Man that will be missed by me, my son and my family.
Please accept our sincere condolences and may the Lord give His Divine Peace
To the Family, Freinds and Coworkers

It doesn't seem real that I cannot pick up the phone and call Phillip this Monday after our oven in the kitchen went out this weekend. It is an all too painful truth today that a dear friend is gone. I will truly miss you sir as will so many. Your sense of humor and caring heart were a bright spot to all of those not so fun days of disaster requiring your help. Your dedication to your family and friends were an inspiration. I truly hope there are Bear's poboys, Dr. Pepper,and football for you to enjoy in heaven where I know you surely are now in peace. You will forever be missed.

My deepest condolences to all of his family, friends and also the many family members he gained along the way through his Marriott life. I’ve met Phill many years ago while working at one of many M hotels we both worked for. He always had a smile , a joke to crack, a kind word to make my oh so well stressful days smoother .. I’ll never forget his “Girl I can’t never recognize you ! One day your small then weeks later you seemed fuller and happier!” .. his kind way to joke about my weight lifetime problem ..
I will definitely miss you Phill! Your encouraging words when I told you I was finally out of the “operations madness” and into the accounting world “you deserve it girl! Enjoy it!”... I for sure know your resting in peace in the presence of our Lord. 💙

Laurie,

I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of Phillip’ Marriott Engineering family for allowing us to have him as a part of our lives. Phillip was not only an example of what a great Man should be. He is now a greater example of what being a man of God is. He always put the well-being of others before his own. A great example of that is all of The charity homes he has been involved in building. Just to give you an idea of how far and to how may people his heart has reached and a will continue to reach, If you were to drive through New Orleans via I-10 you can’t drive for 5 minutes without passing ahome that has been built for a family in need that Phillip didn’t have something to do with being built. His compassion for his fellow man will be here well after we join him in heaven.
I Know I’m a better man thanks to him!
