Phil was a very special guy who brought a ray of sunshine into the lives of all who knew him-- and he was a talented professional committed to quality work at ERI/Oakstone. He came along at a time when ERI desperately needed someone to help us move from "cut and splice" manual tape editing to the new world of digital audio editing. Phil had the experience, knowledge and positive attitude that I as CEO was looking for. I hired him on the spot and was never sorry that I did. Over the years he helped us help thousands of doctors improve their knowledge and ability to help countless thousands of patients to live a healthier and longer life.
At this sad time I know you will take solace in knowing that Phil was loved by all he touched, but also I hope you will take pride in recognizing the wide-reaching positive impact of his work on lives of so many.
Although I never met Mr. Phil Jeffery in person, I sincerely felt so comfortable with his kindness on the phone as he helped me do my audio recordings with Oakstone. He worked with me for the past 3 years and was so patient with me and understanding. He always had an upbeat, encouraging spirit that made me feel so happy. He was an altruistic soul who truly cared for others. I will miss him dearly. Gargi Mukherji (Houston, Texas)
My heart is broken for your loss. Phil will be deeply missed by all who knew him. I am glad to have known him and to have had the opportunity to work with him and learn from him -- but mostly to call him my friend.
I worked with Phil for a number of years at ERI/Oakstone Publishing. What a gentle soul. I cannot recall hearing him utter an unkind word or a discouraging phrase, ever, during my time spent with him as a co-worker. I do, however, remember a couple of very choice Halloween costume choices he concocted that made us all laugh and laugh! Phil leaves the world a brighter place for his presence, and us privileged to have known him. I am sure I heard a train whistle when God called Phil home ...
So sorry for your loss Phil was a great person. I have loved that family since I was in 8th Grade. Phil was always there for me in High School whenever I needed him to talk to or whatever it was. I will always hold a special place in my heart for him and his boys.
I am so sorry to hear about Phil. We are praying God will comfort you in the days to come. We love you.
Donna and family
We are so sorry for your loss. Phil was a very dear cousin. We lift you and the entire family in prayer.
Jeannie and Stan,
Our heart hurts for your loss. It has been many years since we were all children running and playing with our folks close by. We have a wonderful family who loves deeply. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
How blessed am I to have met and worked with such a kind, gentle and caring soul? I will miss the light that shined when Phil smiled! I feel priviledged to have been in the presence of someone so encouraging and positive. You will always be remembered and greatly missed - Rest In Paradise!
Phil was a very special person and his train whistle always made the end of my work week so much better. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. He will be missed...
Phil was as good gold, he was always willing to help anyone. I always loved to here his stories about events he was involved in thru his life.
Phil was not only my friend and co-worker for over 20 years, he was an inspiration to me everyday. I will miss his smiles, laughs and compassionate soul. Heaven gained an ANGEL and I know I will see you again.
Phil was one of a kind person he was sweet, considerate kind, understanding always a smile we will miss you in Disturbition at Oakstone.
Phil will truly be missed.A genuine person with a sweet soul.
Phil was unlike all others. You never knew when he was hurting or sad, because he never showed it. He always "gave us a smile" every morning. Everywhere you saw him, he'd have that huge UAB cup full of ice. Very knowledgeable and smart. He was a big asset to ERI/Oakstone. He will be missed greatly...as a coworker and as a friend.
Phil always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say, he will truly be missed.
Sorry for your lose ...Nancy. Phill touched whoever crossed his life path, he was always a joy to be around and will be missed deeply. My prayers go out to you and your family. Kevin S.
Phil, Was a kind gentle soul. He will be greatly missed, from our Oakstone Family!
Phil was such a sweet soul. Oakstone will not be the same without his smiling face and sweet spirit. I can't hear a train whistle without thinking of him.
Phil was a wonderful kind soul! He made me feel welcomed the first day I started work 20 years ago. He has been a dear friend ever since then. Phil always shared his smile with us every morning. I am going to miss that so much! I am going to miss you my dear sweet friend...
Phil was such a gentle and kind man, very thoughtful and helpful to everyone. He was my manager my last 3 years at Oakstone and I learned so much from him. Our prayers go out to the Jeffery family, friends and loved ones. May you be comforted and find peace during this difficult time.
To know him is to love him. Oakstone will miss our Phil Jeffery. Prayers for the family, especially you Nancy. Love you.
Phil was such a sweet, sweet man; he always had a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. He will be missed beyond words at Oakstone Publishing. My prayers and thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.
Phil was such a genuine and kind man. He had a friendly smile for everyone he came in contact with. I worked with him for a short while at Oakstone, and always appreciated his optimism and kindess. I'm so sorry for your loss.
Words are of little comfort at such a time as this, but, alas, that is all I have to offer the Jeffery family. Phil was a phenomenal man; considerate, compassionate, kind, wise, and strong in a very humble way. The laughter and smiles that he brought to all who knew him will forever leave a hole that none but God can fill.
Our prayers are with you as you adapt to a new reality without your precious son, husband, and father. May the Holy Spirit comfort you in those quiet times of grief when there are no arms to hold you, no shoulder to cry on, and no understanding of the great question, "why?" Peace to you till you meet him again.

So sorry for your loss Jay, praying for you.
I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there to give you a hug. Please remember that I love you and you will always be in my prayers. Even though the miles separate us I feel your pain and sorrow. God Bless you and may time take away your pain. Just remember you will be with him again one day wrapped in God's loving arms.
I enjoyed seeing the pictures of Phil since I haven't seen him over the years. I especially liked the one of him with Russell and Jason when they were little.
Please know that I am praying that God fold his arms around you and everyone who grieves for Phil.
I am so sorry.
