Philip Alan Masteller

Philip Alan Masteller came into our world on a warm summer day in 1981. From his first breath, he was loved. He reciprocated by filling our lives with light, laughter, and joy. Phil never met a stranger, he could walk into a room and within minutes be the life of the party. Phil loved experiencing new things in new places, listening to new music, seeking out new food and new beverages. Phil's passion for living life to its fullest found him driving through dusty canyons in his convertible, swinging in a hammock next to a river or floating down it in a tube; he loved mastering a mountain on a bike, or floating around the Puget Sound on a sailboat with good friends then he spent the cold winters sliding down a slope on a snowboard, and heading back up to do it again. Phil's daughter Piper was the center of his world, her sparkle and playfulness will continue to remind us of his spirit and love of life and be a blessing to his loved ones.

Phil was taken from us on a snowy afternoon on highway 97 in Bend Oregon. Phil is survived by Piper, his father Craig, mother Susan, his girlfriend Kara, his sisters Jessica and Shawna, too many loving family members to list and so many friends, who became family. A celebration of his life (A "Philabration") will be planned, when we can all safely travel to be with one another. Phil's spirit of adventure will live on in every person who has known him; we will all remember to live life to its fullest- for Phil.

I only met Phil briefly during a similar tragedy in which he was so kind to my daughter, his friends that were affected, and my family during that time. I always had such great respect in my heart for who he was and how he handled that! It touched me deeply and while I am so saddened by his tragedy I am so grateful for his life and who he was. Sending Love to all those who were as lucky as I to cross his path and get a glimpse of who he was and to those who will miss him most, I wish you peace and healing.

I considered Philip to be my brother. We were the Hazard Road Kids: Luke, Erik, Philip, and I. Philip moved in with us when he was about five, after our parents, Craig and Laurie married. We grew up together as siblings and I will never forget his fearlessness, or his honesty. I miss him terribly...

I met Phil at Harrison ER, where I worked as a nurse for many years. I can honestly say he was one of the most genuine, funny, honest, caring young men I had the pleasure of working with. He was good at his job, his coworkers loved him as did our patients.
We were blessed to have had him at our sides as a coworker and in our lives as a friend. I will never forget his smile, his humor or jokes, his enthusiasm and love for life or how he talked about Piper with such pride.
I am so sorry for such a tragic loss of your beloved son but he was blessed with an amazing family who raised him to reach for his dreams, which he certainly was doing. He was an amazing young man that you should be very proud to call your son. ❤
