Phil’s true passion in life was his family whom he absolutely adored. Phil had 8 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. The closeness Phil had with his family was so very special. Phil was married to his beautiful and loving wife Francine for 58 wonderful years. Playing poker was Phil’s favorite pastime with friends. Playing cards brought Phil great joy for over 70 years. Mariam Feed Company was opened by Phil’s grandfather. With Phil and his brother Alan’s dedication and hard work, Mariam Feed Company stayed in business for over a 100 years. Phil was kind, quick witted and always had a smile on his face. Everyone knew him loved him.
