In 1980, I worked with one of Phil's daughters (can't remember her name) at
Transamerica Insurance in Dallas. she had many great stories about her dad. All of them were Cub fans, of course!

My father, Russell Scurto, grew up with Phil. He had many fond memories of him and said he was a great guy. They can reminisce together now about the times they played ball as kids. God bless you, Mr. Cavarretta.

I was born in Chicago in 1936, but my family moved to St. Louis when I was an infant. I grew up being a Cubs fan due to my father playing ball in the Cubs minor league organization. He played High School ball against Phil who was a pitcher at the time, at least that is what recall. I also loved to hear anything about my baseball hero, number 44, Phil Cavaretta. I especially remember matching him against the St. Louis hero, Stan Musial, when the Cubs were in town. Many times Phil did not disappoint me. Please rest in peace Phil

I have already left a message, but I just want to say how it warms my heart to see the messages the family are leaving directly to Phil.

With Eternal Life - we never really die - just physically - but our souls go on living at our new Heaven address. YOU all have that down so beautifully. I love reading your comments and I know Phil must love them so much. He was a really great man, wasn't he? Thanks for keeping him alive for all of us! Love, Terry Fenwick

Hi Papa, my family and I miss you so much. You truly were the best Papa ever. We had so many good times, talking, watching baseball, even just going to the store. I am so glad that you had a few years to see my twins grow-up, Nathan and Natalie. I think about you everyday. Love you always! Love, Candace

My best memory, although there's many, was at the home in Spring Hill. I was pitching to Phil (Jr) and you were coaching me on home to pitch "put some mustard on it - spice it up" and I tired hard. Now my boys play the game - we've got THE LOVE OF THE GAME... You passed it on... my mom & Al did, Phil did.. we'll always miss you but love the sport you lived to play. As a grandfather, you were there for me even on the road for Mets but as my parents divorced it was you, uncles - John, Phil and then my step-dad that made extra time to mentor me up. Field of dream now... we'll all be on the same team in heaven one day! God's Cubs/Rays/Rangers/insert team... Your faith in God was obvious and planted a seed as I was a seeker for years and for decades put Jesus Christ at the center. Pam, the boys and I enjoyed our occassional visits. They felt your love too.
Rest in peace. Love Jeff, Pam, Spencer and Mitch

I jokingly say I was engaged to Phil Cavarretta because when I was just 9, I had a crush on him! Phil used to come to Peoria, where my Uncle lived. He was so handsome. Sigh! My Uncle said he was going to wait to marry me but he married Lorayne instead in my Uncle's home - Glen D. Walley, 2310 Main, Peoria, Illinois. Some things one never forgets - Phil Cavarretta is one of them! God bless the family of this good man and really fine Cub player. Full and wonderful life! Love to Lorayne! I am cheering for the Cubs right now . . . they are beating the Giants as I write this. Go Cubs! Welcome HOME Phil Cavarretta! Enjoy the ball game! Terry Fenwick

To The Cavarretta Family,
I write this for my mother who is 92 yrs old, frail & cannot speak due to many strokes. She has told our family by writing on paper how proud and honored she was to have Phil be her neighbor on Cleveland Ave in 1940's. I only wished I could have had a picture of him signed to my mom before he passed. She would have been thrilled. However, after researching Phil Cavarretta I came uopn his obiituary. My heart broke. I had to tell my mom of his passing and she is deeply saddened. I enjoyed seeing my mom smile while speaking of Phil Cavarretta. I am most certain that God welcomed him with open arms. Phil was a great man on this earth. God bless him.
