Phil had such a beautiful voice.  I remember his solos in Up with People.  Just beautiful.

My brother died September 11th 1999.  He was 45 at the time.  He is missed daily and his beautiful voice is forever silenced.  He was a wonderful brother, husband and father.  Danette

Phil and I were married in 1971 and were happily married until his death in 1999.  We had two wonderful sons who continue to be a great source of happiness for me and serve as great examples of all of the goodness that was in their Dad.  Nathan, his youngest, inherited his beautiful voice and continues to pursue a career in music.  Phil Jr., received his electrical engineering degree and is a successful businessman.   He and his wife Brandi have blessed me with two grandchildren!  When I lost Phil, I not only lost a beloved husband, but my best friend.

Today is a sad day for our family.  Time heals some pain but not all.  We miss our brother, father, husband very much.  A wonderful man was lost to the world.  We love you Phil always.  Danette
