Aunt Alice, and cousins Marie, Chris, Mark, and John,

The first memory of (Uncle) Phil that comes to mind for me is when I was about 12 and we came to visit you guys in Phoenix — he took me on an “easy” 8 mile run that almost killed me. I kept waiting for him (this old guy!) to get tired, but he just kept going and going. I’m not sure he even broke a sweat, but when he saw I was about to expire he pretended like he was too tired to go on and we came back home. When we entered the house, he was very complimentary and made me feel like I had done a good job on the run — I just remember how good his words made me feel. I do think he may have snuck out later to run some more though!

Uncle Phil was always so kind and generous — and sharp. Mom always talks about how smart Phil was, and how hard he worked in every facet of his life. I always felt a sense of that when I talked to him — he had this sort of relaxed focus — but he was also someone I could talk to, and he listened and cared. I will miss him a great deal.

Love, and condolences,

Condolence from Jim Loveland (Margie’s favorite sister’s husband) on April 6th, 2016 5:36 am

I met Phillip at a get-together several years ago at Angela’s (John) mom’s house in Oglesby,IL. He was fascinating to speak with on many topics…including our healthcare “system”. It was obvious he loved his work …and play…as well. To be missed.
