I just found out of Phil's passing after seeing his lovely memorial photograph at Giant Eagle-I was shocked to tears, Phil patiently helped me so many times at the servcie desk at Giant Eagle and always was such a delight! Missing his handsome face, his warm smile and subtle wit...blessings and prayers for his dear family.
My Mother and I always saw Phil at Giant Eagle. We just learned of his passing. We were so sad and shocked. He was such a nice person.
I just happened to go in the 30th St Giant Eagle on my lunch hour today to cash a check when I read a thank you note on the customer service counter to GE customers on all the kinds words about Phil. I had to ask, what about Phil? I didn't know he was gone. My boys are close to his age and we had once lived for 11 years in a neighborhood very close to Phil. Phil was my paper boy! and I remember him pulling his little brother John in a wagon with all the newspapers. Needless to say I will miss seeing him at the 30th St Giant Eagle. My heart goes out to his family. Patti Hamilton and sons Brad Shafer and Todd Shafer. Rest in peace Phil..
Thinking about you and missing you....
Philip will live on forever in my heart. He will not be forgotten
I just learned of Phil's passing. I remember Phil fondly from my eight years at the 30th Street Giant Eagle. He truly was a great guy and always a pleasure to interact with. I can never remember him having a cross word to say about anything and always having a smile on his face. My heart goes out to his family for their loss.
Rest in peace Phil My heart aches still missing you and will never forget you and your handsome smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May you find comfort in Gods love. There are no words to express how much I will miss Phil. Rest in peace Sir.
I am so sorry. I always looked forward to joking and laughing with him, he did an excellent job at giant eagle and will be missed. Very nice and polite to everyone.
TO THE PAPADOPULOS FAMILY, SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF A WONDERFUL SON AND FRIEND TO ALL.
I am so sorry about your loss. Phil was the sweetest person you would ever want to know. he always had a smile on his face when i would see him at Giant Eagle. I will miss him

I'm sure God has another angel attending him in heaven now.
So terribly sad to see a childhood friend gone. Glad I had the experience to play GOYA bball with him. Awesome friend and he will be deeply missed. May his memory be eternal. I love ya brother.
Phil, you were a mentor, a friend and one of the best people I have ever known. I love that I got to spend so much time with you over the last few years, but I only wish I would have told you what you meant to me. My life will never be the same because of you, you made me a better man and a better friend. I'm sorry I wasn't there when you needed me most, you were always there for me. I will always miss you.
For the Papadolpolus family, I am truly sorry for your loss, Phil was nothing short of remarkable.
Dearest family, I know this has to feel like a bad dream that you will sudddenly awake from. This 'blink of an eye' called life can not be measured. Phil touched so many lives in his short life. I celebrate his life and the fullness he put into it. Tears will flow now and perhaps for some time to come but there will come that time when thoughts of Phil will come to mind and bring a special memory and you will smile.Allow yourselves time and know that there are MANY out there lifting you up to the Father in prayer including me.
Phil I'm going to miss those deep dimples, those handsome eyes and most of all your gentlemen smile and
The the winks. May you rest in peace my friend you will be missed greatly.
My prayers go to the family loved Phil like he was my own. I always looked forward to working with Phil, he always made the day go much easier.
May the love of Family & Friends - Bring you comfort in the days ahead - Alyssa -I am just down the street if you want to talk Love Sandy
My thoughts and prayers are with the whole Papadopulos family. Phil was friends with my brother, and I didn't know him well, but every time I saw him in Giant Eagle he would smile (it was a great smile, as many others have mentioned) and say hi. I know he will be missed by many people and I hope he is at peace.
Philip...May God hold your spirit gently in His arms. My deepest sympathy to the family in this time of tremendous loss...
Sorry for your loss...your son was a very nice person and will be missed

I'm so sorry to hear about Phil's passing. I know I haven't seen him in a really long time but having known him since childhood, I'm greatly saddened.
My heart aches with the news of Philip's passing. Having been a classmate of Phil's since junior high, I got to know Phil as being an incredibly smart and kind person. It wasn't until our adult life that I came to know how wonderful of a person he was, sweet, smart, witty and kind. He had such a presence. I will miss him greatly. My deepest sympathies goes out to the family.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I am a regular customer of the 30th Street Giant Eagle, For 10 years I greeted Phil as I came in with a loud "BROTHER PHIL"...he would always smile regardless of what he was doing and respond with a kind "Hello Kevin"...I am saddened by his departure..I shall miss you deeply ...one more time...."BROTHER PHIL".......
Another Angel Got his wings.
I was Phil's classmate at McKinley, and I have such fond memories of long walks home through Monument Park after school. Phil was a true original (in the best way) and will be profoundly missed.
Your family will always be in my prayers......Stay strong!!!!
Love Shaylla Smith
He was a very special friend of mine . May his memory be eternal

May God receive Phil warmly and may He bless those who are mourning his loss.
Phil will be missed by so many Family and Friends, not to mention his Giant Eagle Family.

This past weekend, my good friend Fleetwood and I we're traveling around Northern Michigan when we got the sad news of Phil's passing. From that point on through the weekend while we we're playing Disc Golf. Every time I got a birdie I said Phil's name with dignity and honor out loud along with my friend Jesse name and my Mom name and another friend Carly's name. I got a lot of birdies and said their names a lot. And I felt all the warmth and love and smiles from heaven. I'll never forget cha, Phil.
Phil will always be a near and dear friend in my heart. Our weekly Wednesday euchre tourneys, annual pilgrimage to Columbus for Community Festival, and the other good times we shared that are too many to count will always be with me. I promise I will remember you often and in the highest regard.
What a wonderful guy you were! May your memory be eternal.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.Phil was a great co-worker.He will be missed dearly.
I worked with Phil at GE from 2005 to 2008. He was just a genuine guy. I was just 16 when I started and he would always give me such good advice. On my trips back to Canton Id stop into GE and he was always a friendly guy you could shoot the breeze with. I'll miss him. RIP Phil and my condolences to his family.
My condolences to Philip and family, God bless ! paul medley

I will always remember Phil as someone who possessed more snark and wit than I ever could hope to attain. I have fond memories of our hackey-sack sessions after school in the park. To the family, I am truly saddened by the loss of Phil. This world is certainly worse off without him in it.
I was in several classes with Phil growing up. I'll miss you. One of the few with whom I've never had any problems. Peace be with you and to all of your family.

I will miss seeing Phil at Giant Eagle and spotting him walking in the neighborhood. My thoughts are with Phil's family.
Phil was great person to be around. Always made me smile and he will be missed. My prayers to his family.
I worked with Phil at Giant Eagle from 2000-2003, and we always had the best time. He, "Quick Cash", and I, "Easy Money" couldn't resist some well earned shenanigans with our co-workers. Since then, when I moved out of town, I'd run in to Phil in the most random of places in Canton. What a great guy. This is so hard to believe. I often still went to Giant Eagle on my trips home to see if he was working. My condolences to Phil's friends and family.
Melissa , I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Melissa and family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss may god give you and your family strength during this time

My prayers are with your family now. Phillip was a great person who always made me laugh.
Phil brought many gifts into the lives of everyone he knew, such an amazing individual. He will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
