I first met Philip over 40 years ago. He was one of the most generous friends I ever had. He was generous with his time, his skills, and his knowledge. When I was a green Training Director for the Millwright Apprenticeship Program, Philip introduced me to everyone that I needed to know throughout Florida. When I went to work for the School District, I could always count on his total support. His friendship and support for more than 40 years means more to me than I can possibly express. Thanks Brother, Gerald (Smitty) Smith

Gonna miss this man. Even though he wasn't my grandpa, I'd call him grandpa and he would answer if I was one of his grandchildren. Lots of night playing cards. His favorite game to play was 5 card draw and duces wild. RIP GRANDPA SURE GONNA MISS YOU......... STEVEN CORRIVEAU

Philip was an inspiration to me in my earliest years with IBEW Local 915 -- as I'm sure he was for many, many apprentices that went through his program. He was a true pioneer in the industry and made long lasting positive contributions to the electrical industry's level of quality tradesmen. He was a man among men and helped many boys become men through his genuine caring guidance. I consider him one of the important influences in my life and I am grateful for our times together. I will miss him. Tim McMurry

Philip was one of the kindest and caring person I had the privilege to know over the last 30 years. I had the honor to call him my friend. He was a hard working man all his life and took pride in all he had. He loved his family more than anything in this world. Even when he was so sick, he wasn't ready to give up. The last time I talked to him in January, he said he was going home, taking a plane and coming to NC to see me. He never wanted to give up or face defeat. He will be missed dearly by so many people. I know I will miss him so very much. Rest In Peace my dear friend. I hope our paths will cross again. Elaine Hanson
