Phil understood and accepted what Solomon had to say about life in the book of Ecclesiastes and had a full and contented life. He was especially good to Virginia and his family and kind and generous to all. Too bad that more of us are not more like him.

I’ll never forget Phil’s smile. I’m so sad he’s gone. But I also know he is celebrating now with his wife and those who have gone on before him. Phil was always so kind and generous and went out of his way to do good for others, and for me as well. The greatest act of love that stands out the most to me was his deep abiding love and care for his wife. He will be greatly missed! He was a fine example of what a Christian man should be.

Phil was always a friendly person and had a big smile. We enjoyed seeing him at church. He was an inspiration to others. When life wasn’t easy he didn’t give up. So sorry for your loss. We will miss him.

I still have the Bible bookmark ribbons Phil made for me. They will continue to be special keepsakes for remembering this fine christian brother. He usually sat behind Mom and I at worship services, and was so friendly toward us.

Phil was a very special man. He went the extra mile to make my daughters and me feel loved. I enjoyed talking to him about baseball, his family, God and life in general. I've missed seeing him on a regular basis, but have thought about him often.

He lived a good life, fought the race and is now enjoying the reward.

My love to the family.

One year I had a wild idea to teach jelly making at church. We had bushels of apples donated to the cause. I suppose because they couldn't give them away. Phil came to the recuse with an apple peeler and corer.

In typical Phil fashion we got a story of where the apple corer came from and how often the love of his life used it to make the best apple pie for all the potlucks at church.

Loved listening to Phil's stories and have missed him the last few years as he began attending services with his children. His smile and faith were precious to me.

Phil was one of a kind! We enjoyed many good times with him and Virginia. Sunday nights eating popcorn for dinner at their house while visiting is a fond memory! Phil always had a smile on his face and could put one on mine! He loved Virginia so very much. Heaven has welcomed him home. I'm sure Virginia was the first in line!
