Belated condolences Barb on your loss of a wounderful man. We were still in Arizona when we heard. I still have a lot of fond memories, riding on the back of his motorcycle, buying a car or a boat, some great times at the Yacht Club many years ago. Just an all around great guy.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear Family, all of you,
I can relate to your time now as I lost my Dad July 13, 2011. My dad, Jim Cullum, like Phil and so many others were the life stream, a new birth for the Orleans retail mecca. In their youth, working it, making it all happen. All hard workers, full of humor and optimistic. They were the icons. My dad had Musitronics.
I was always flattered when Phil would come to the Barley Neck Inn to hear me play. He would joke how he could adjust his hearing aid to hear the music at the level he desired! He had a great sense of humor. I have always treasured my friendship with his daughter, Debbie and will never forget us practicing music in their basement when we had our teenage group the Seam Rippers.
I remember one time down there, the song came on "I can see for miles and miles and miles" It was the 1st time I had heard it. Well Phil saw for miles and miles with his vision of Nauset Marine, etc. A true breaking ground entrepreneur.
RIP Phil, you have left a legacy. I am so glad I knew you.
The Deschamps family,
Our sincere condolences from the Clifton family. We have wonderful memories of joyful times on Pleasant Bay with Phil and family. God Bless
Virginia, Donald, Sharon, Pam, Mark and Bryan
A good man and friend, we will miss his Cape Cod wit and humor

I am very sorry to hear of your loss of your husband and father. He was a very special man, and built up such a great business and influenced his sons to join him and daughter to follow her passion. May his memory live on forever!
