Phil was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. His wife always held first place in his life and nothing could ever come between them. Phil was an avid sports fan and nothing brought him greater joy than watching his three grandchildren play ball. He also greatly enjoyed watching his beloved LSU Tigers play football and baseball on television, while feasting on some of his wife’s great cooking. Those that were closest to Phil would have to say that he leaned on his faith in Christ, and that he would stand up and speak for his family and loved ones. He was a good man.
