Phillip was always a hard worker he worked as an Iron worker for over 35 years. Phillip was the type of person that would literally give you the shirt off his back. Phillip loved spending time with his family and friends, he enjoyed cooking Bar-B-Que, listening to good music and riding his Motorcycle around town.
