Philip was a loving and giving person and the love he had for his family and the times they spent together were most important to him. He had a sense of humor like no other and could make anyone laugh.

Due to Covid, the family has elected not to hold a memorial service at this time but will be having a “celebration of life event” later in the year. Information will be forthcoming.
