I've known the Chavez family for more than 30 years, and consider them a second family, and love Phillip Jr. like a brother. I always considered Kay and Phillip Sr second parents, and love them as well. I spent a lot of time with the Chavez family--many summer trips to Del Mar and Coronado, and even lived with them for a time when my family moved from Barstow.
Phillip Sr. was truly one of the greatest men I've known. Always kind, always happy, always helpful. I'll always remember his laughter, his smile, his jokes, and his kindness, as well as the kindness of his family.
He is loved and respected, and will be greatly missed by so many that he touched and influenced.
