PIQUA — Philip J. Putterbaugh, 53, of Piqua, died of natural causes Sunday, May 1, 2016, at his residence.

He was born Nov. 21, 1962, in Piqua to James W. Putterbaugh of Piqua and Lyndel (Petry) Putterbaugh Trissell, of Sidney.

Other survivors include stepsiblings, Bill (Stacy) Hampshire, of New Carlisle, Kim Hampshire, of Piqua, Beth (David) Townsend, of West Palm Beach, Florida, Carol (Jim) Stull, of Scottsdale, Arizona; several nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles; stepfather, Rudy Trissell, of Sidney.

He was preceded in death by his stepmother, Marilyn Putterbaugh.

Phil was a 1981 graduate of Piqua High School and a United States Navy veteran from 1983-1987 following which he accepted a position with GTE working with communications, tracking satellites on the island of Kwajalein in the Pacific. He has been a loyal employee and Manager of Papa John's Pizza in the Dayton, Springfield, and Xenia areas for six years, and 10 years at the Piqua, Troy and currently Sidney stores.

Phil was a sports nut; loved football and basketball, still treasured the best friends he made when he was the Team Manager all four years at Piqua High School basketball games. In addition, he surprised his mother by regaling her with the things he learned from enjoying the History Channel! He loved movies as well; even through these last years of eye surgeries, he managed to figure out what was going on the big screen; Mom was his movie pal. Phil grew up in the Piqua Church of the Brethren and never let go of his religious upbringing. He had more recently attended the Upper Valley Community Church in Piqua and was united with that faith through the sermons of his former classmate, the Rev. James Jennings. He will be deeply missed by his loving family and many friends.

A service to honor his life will begin at 1:30 p.m. Monday, May 9, 2016, at the Jamieson & Yannucci Funeral Home, Piqua, with Pastor John Shelton officiating. Burial will follow at Miami Memorial Park Cemetery where full military honors will be provided by the Veterans Elite Tribute Squad.

Visitation will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
