Philip Otto Readio at 62 years of age passed away in his home in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday the 25th of July 2018.
Phil is survived by his Brothers Chris and Dave, his children Nyssa and Ryan, and his grandson Bryce.
From a very young age Phil was a tinkerer, he would take any and everything apart. His Parents, George and Arlene, were loving, kind and patient with his curiosity to learn. One of his role models growing up was his Grandfather Otto. They spent countless hours taking apart and repairing cars, fixing wiring and completing expert carpentry projects. His grandfather could have done all the work in far less time, but wanted to let Phil figure out and learn how everything worked. These were memories Phil held dear to his heart. The values and lessons he learned from his Grandfather he passed down to his children and his grandson Bryce.
Throughout his life Phil enjoyed being active outdoors by going on walks, bike rides, hiking and playing tennis. He liked watching movies, dining in and out, bowling, playing pool, and hopping in his red convertible to take day-trips during the summer. He was always looking to try new recipes and buying interesting kitchen gadgets to make them. He often volunteered in the community and was an active member of the Catholic Church. He spoke of the deep passion he had for his faith.
The relationship he had with his children and his grandson were what made him most happy. He was very much involved with all their lives. He was thrilled to watch Bryce grow up and loved being able to spend so much time together. Being able to be a role model for Bryce like Phil’s Grandfather was to him brought immense joy to his life.
Phil will be remembered most for his genuine kindness, loving nature, and his wonderful laugh that always brought a smile to his family and friend’s hearts. He will be missed dearly and always.
