Philip Holstein Notice

Philip L. Holstein, 62, died peacefully at his home on Thursday with his wife and children by his side. It was one of the hardest days of their lives. They lost their best friend and father/husband. He was so strong and a fighter until the very end. No one had more thirst for life than him. Phil was incredibly selfless and always put everyone else first. A true philanthropist, community and business leader, and outdoorsman, Phil Holstein was our rock. He was silly, joyful, adventurous, kind, generous, compassionate, loyal, and the most positive person we know. He had a deep love for the Adirondacks. One of his proudest accomplishments was becoming a 46er at the age of 13. His family includes his wife Alyse; their children Gregory and Erin; his parents Chuckie and Alex Holstein; his brother David (Jeanne) Holstein; his sisters Carol (Ronald) Killian, and Elizabeth (Louis Sardelli) Holstein; a large and loving extended family; and many friends who were like family. Funeral Service and burial will be in Syracuse, NY. Contributions in Phil's memory may be made to The Philip L. Holstein Memorial Fund at The Jewish Community Foundation of CNY; The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in memory of Philip L. Holstein www.pancan.org; or The Adirondack Foundation in memory of Philip L. Holstein www.adirondackfoundation.org
