"Uncle Phil" was such a big influence in my life and the lives of countless other 4-Hers that were lucky enough to know and love him. He was always teasing us but it was done with love and in good fun. I remember when I first met him and he realized who my parents were. He had known them both since he was a young boy. At every 4-H event and at all of the fairs, he would have such a great time convincing me to be a part of his jokes on my Uncle Tommy. And then later on when I had kids, he was so kind and loving to them. He was the first to teach my son how to milk a cow. We laughed so hard, I thought I would cry. And my kids got the biggest kick out of how he wore his hat! He will truly be missed and our heartfelt condolences go out to the entire Fanelli family. No words can ease your loss but know that our thoughts and prayers are with you always. Heaven now has one hell of a dairyman running the show - go Jerseys!!! Rest in peace "faccia brut" you will truly be missed but the love we feel for you will go on.
