We lived across the street from Philip and Mary many years ago but still recall very fond memories of him. One Christmas morning he greeted me with the warmest and most joyous holiday cheer, he told me about base camp at Everest, and mixed a wonderful Bellini...consumed with smiles. A wonderful and affable gentleman who will be missed and a mentor for many. Our sincere condolences to the entire family. -David, Laura, Milo, and Bebe Carter XO

Although we were only neighbors for a short time, we will truly miss Philips humor and good nature. Our daughter Molly who babysat for them remembered that Philip would often drive her home even though we lived only a few houses away. Our deepest condolences to Mary and the girls.

Dear Mary, Sam and Jack, I am so saddened and shocked to hear about Phil's death. My heart is with you all. I so enjoyed being on the school committee with Phil. He was always positive, always looking for common ground and always willing to listen to someone else's point of view. I will miss his kindness, wisdom and friendliness. He had a smile for me whenever we ran into each other in town, at athletic events or in the halls of the public schools. The boys and I send condolences to all of you and your extended family. We are thinking of you. In sympathy, Susan Stover, Jack, Will and Andy Garrett

We were so saddened to learn of Philip's passing. Philip never failed to bring a smile to the faces of his fellow School Committee members. He was witty, quick, principled, a great guy and, above all, dedicated to improving education for Yarmouth's children. He will be greatly missed. Kay and David Ray.

Philip was truly unique. Whenever our paths crossed, I always uncovered another of his passions ... soccer, writing/reading, attempting to hike tall mountains. Philip enriched my life with his passions ... thank you for sharing them with me, my friend.

I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Philip’s passing. In the few years I knew Philip, he impressed me with his kindness and congeniality. He was an active, engaged, and caring member of the Yarmouth community and a steward of the town’s impressive school system. Whenever there was an event or some gathering in town, I always looked for Philip. Sharing conversation and a laugh with him was something I always looked forward to and I will miss those moments, and I will miss him, greatly.

Mary, Samantha, Jack, Wendy, John, and Henrietta and family: This has been almost beyond belief. What a shock for you all. Edward and I (old Edgehill Road friends of Wendy and John) can only hope that the memories of Philip as an exemplary son, brother, father, and husband will comfort you. We send our love and sympathy.

A gentleman, scholar and caring friend., Philip listened, gave a damn and contributed to those people and causes that mattered to him. A wonderful father, husband, brother and son, Philip was beloved for good reason. He climbed mountains, wrote books and always had more than enough splendid wine ready to pour. He read good books, hated cheese and gave back generously to his adopted Yarmouth. We will miss him and mourn his departure — too soon. But here’s a toast to a jolly, thoughtful soul with depth, compassion and ferocious spirit.

I was so sad to hear this news. As a teacher, I loved running into Philip. He cared so deeply about kids and learning and his town. I am thinking of his own wonderful children and family and send love. His loss leaves such a hole in our Yarmouth community.
