Philip is someone who made a real difference in my life in so many ways over the years. He was always there to lend a hand without a ton of fanfare or expectations. He was a joy to be around and the very definition of a great friend. I miss him.

Wir werden uns immer an seinen ersten Besuch in Germany erinnern, wie wir gemeinsam spazieren gegangen sind und versucht haben die Namen der Bäume vom Deutsch ins Englische zu übersetzen und umgekehrt. Der Ausflug nach Rüdesheim die unendliche Geduld und Ruhe die er ausstrahlte. Danke dass wir diese Zeit mit ihm teilen durften

Philip was my Toyota Tec for over 20 years - trusted and competent. On occasions we saw each other while out in Quincy, giving my wife the opportunity to know this quiet man also. During the last years during his illness we periodically spoke by phone and the times are treasured. Condolences to Connie, Kerstin and family.
