Philip went to rest peacefully on Friday, May 27, 2022 at 11:55 PM surrounded by his family whom he loved very much. Philip was very devoted to his family. From a young age Philip was gentle, kind, and ornery. As Philip grew, these qualities remained. He showed his love for his family in this way. Philip lived his life for his son, Nick and assisted his mother until he was no longer able. Philip also had a love for all of the children of the family. He teased them and brought laughter and joy into their hearts. For anyone who had the privilege to see the goodness in his heart, they were surely blessed. Philip and his adventurous spirit will be missed.
