I have only known Phil for a few years through the St. Paul Lutheran Church Walking Group. I enjoyed our varied conversations, his knowledge and interest in history, his clever sense of humor, his love of travel and family, his spirit and spirituality, and learning about his wide career successes.
I will always remember his smile and grit and personality,and will miss him very much.

I will always remember Phil as one of the kindest and funniest person I have known. He could make you laugh every time he came to visit. I especially remember the time he was asked by my mom to empty the trunk of her car and he brought in the spare tire. That spare tire story even made it all the way to my wedding when I received a little lawn mower tire from him as a wedding gift. Even though we didn't get to see him very much I will always remember him and miss him. Rose
