Not sure what to say?

I worked with Phil on the NorCal Grants Committee, and he was always generous to the core, and liked to see things for himself. I'm in awe of all the good he has done in the world, and sorry to find out that he has passed. We will use the money donated in his name to keep a some great project going. My condolences.

Phil you were an inspiration in your patience and kindheartedness while we worked together at the Food Bank helpline. May you rest in peace and may your family find comfort.

Joan, I am so sorry to learn that Phil died. He was a wonderful person and memories of him will live on in my heart forever.

Phil was not only a kind and giving friend, but an inspiration to us all. Our thoughts go out to Joan. We will all miss him.

I knew Phillip and Eric from years past. His father and mine were on a deer lease together in Fredricksburg, Texas. Phil, Eric and I often were there with our fathers hunting small game. I am sorry to hear of Phil's passing but joy in knowing I will see him again in the future.

A gentle, caring, giving, humble man. Always a good word or witticism to draw out the humanity of others. A good friend to all in the group of us that went to Colombia in 1964-66 as Peace Corps Volunteers.

He found the right match in his loving wife Joan.

Lee and Maggie Arbuckle

We are very sorry to learn of the passing of Phil, but very grateful for his service to our nation as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Columbia and for all of his work with the both the NPCA and RPCV groups over the years.

Our Condolences,

The National Peace Corps Association
