  • I am so sorry Anne to hear of Phil”s passing. We never got to visit with our East Coast cousins except for Carol. Please convey Sue and my condolences and regards to our other cousins. Uncle Bill forwarded your email to us.

  • I met Phil on just one (or maybe two) occasions on a Family get-together with Steve&Ken,etc..a trip back east to New Castle approx. 20 years ago.
    I remember Phil pretty much as pictured. We instantly got along just fine and I felt like I really new him and understood him.
    He treated me with respect, hospitality and as “one of his family” in the house he grew up in.
    I have always believed that some people live their full lives in their own way, and sometimes do it quicker than others.
    My regards to his 3 children, wife, Mom Anne, and his entire family, as well as close his friends.
    Sincerely & repectfully,
    Greg Kinholt (Steve & Ken’s family/brother)
