Louisville - Philip Anthony Ratterman, 86, of Louisville, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 20, 2020 after a battle with cancer with his family by his side.

He was born November 14, 1933 in New Albany, IN to Oscar A. Ratterman and Mary Louise Knoop Ratterman.

Phil founded his own company, Phil Ratterman and Associates, where he was a successful Insurance Broker. He was a member of St. Rita Catholic Church and a proud member of the U.S. Naval Reserve. Phil was a world class rower and loved to scull, ride his bike, golf and run marathons. His favorite place to relax and enjoy life was Rough River, his home away from home.

Phil's greatest accomplishments in life were becoming a dad, grandfather and great-grandfather. Family meant everything and he was so proud of them all. Our dad had a zest for life! His wit and competitive spirit was how he lived. Dad filled us with positive thoughts to keep us on the right path. He was loved by many for his upbeat personality!!

He is preceded in death by his parents, Oscar S. and Mary Louise Ratterman, his step-mother, Rose Ratterman, and his son, David A. Ratterman.

Left to cherish his memory is his three daughters, Julie Ratterman Kessler, Lynn Ratterman Catlett and Susan Ratterman; 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren; and a daughter-in-law, Debbie Ratterman.

I remember him well. He visited our store in McDaniels (McDaniels General Store) when he was at Rough River. He always had such an upbeat personality. He would often tell me about how many miles he rowed on a particular day. I know you will all miss him. My prayers are with you.
