He loved hunting, fishing and golf. But most of all he loved time with friends and family. Anyone that knew Phil knows he didn’t pass up many chances to have a beer with friends and family. He was so kind hearted he would have given you the shirt off his back. Many people were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Phil during his life.
