  • Aunt Peggy,

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Uncle Phil will always be one of the kindest men I have ever met. He is Steve’s favorite hero, and it didn’t take me long to see why. He was like a father to Steve. You and Uncle Phil always made us feel welcome and loved. Uncle Phil’s laugh lit up his whole face. And when he smiled, you knew the world was alright. You and Uncle Phil were joined at the hip and taught all of those lucky enough to be around you what love and family was all about. Uncle Phil is and always will be the best father figure Steve had in his life. Never judging or unkind. And Aunt Peggy, you can make Steve melt by just hearing your voice. Uncle Phil, always know you are loved and that you made the world a better place. We honestly feel blessed to have you as our Uncle.

  • Jeff, sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.


  • We just heard the sad news about Phil’s passing. We always enjoyed our visits at the beach. Watching Phil fish with his family was always fun on the beach. He was such a kind, smiling man. Our condolences to a sweet family.
