MATTINGLY, Philip S.
Phil was born Dec. 5, 1935 in Fargo, North Dakota. He was raised in Lodi, and was residing in Fair Oaks, CA. A retired mechanical engineer, Phil spent his retirement years lovingly restoring an old World War 2 tug, hoping to turn it into a museum some day. He died of drowning at Mare Island near Vallejo on Dec. 8, 2012. He is survived by his loving wife, Ruth; two sons Steven and David; three step-children, Deborah Giles, Kevin Silveira, and Blake Samples; brothers Gary, Rick and Kent; and sisters Katherine 'Kay' Masters and Marcia Patrick. He was preceded in death by his parents Meredith and Gertrude Matttingly and his older brother Eugene H. Mattingly. Per Phil's wishes, no services are planned.
