Phil was a dedicated, innovative Polaroid employee; a man of integrity and boundless energy; a joy to work with.
We at Polaroid loved to listen to the animated stories Phil told of his life in the North End, especially those having to do with his involvement in
the machinations of local and statehouse politics. What made these stories so arresting was the down-to-earth passion he expressed in the telling.

But what stands out more than anything in my memory of Phil was that sunny day in the early 1980's on Memorial Drive where he participated a 4-mile, fundraising, foot race for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in behalf of co-worker Charlie Trigg's afflicted son, Andy; a triumphant culmination of Phil's long and successful weight-reducing struggle. He had two years earlier dedicated himself totally to the demanding Deaconess Hospital weight loss program resulting in his weight going from approx. 375 to the 180 pounds on the day of the race. I clearly remember my near-tearful exhilaration, jogging a yard behind him as I watched his grueling, steady stride (in his office clothes and leather shoes!) finishing the 4-mile race in 32 minutes; an amazing eight-minute-mile pace for a fellow who was not engaged in a running regimen.

The last time I saw Phil was about ten years ago at a Polaroid Retirees Luncheon at Lantana's. He was describing to a group of his friends his struggle with a brain tumor and his decision to go with a Gamma Knife treatment rather than surgery.

Phil will forever be remembered fondly by his coworkers as one of the big-hearted, larger-than-life, genuine
gems of the old Polaroid.

Phil was indeed special in so many ways. He was a long time, very good friend of mine and will be dearly missed .
At Polaroid, his coworkers knew him to be a person of high integrity and extremely dedicated.
Technically he was very analytical, probing and highly respected by his peers for his views and opinions.

Modest he was; most people didn't know he was a US Army Green Beret/Ranger with many parachute jumps
during his military service. He was also quite athletic;-- trim, fit and fast from his early teens into his twenties.
Just a little bit of what made Phil so special.
