Phillip D. Greybill

Toms River - Phillip D. Greybill, 82, of Toms River, NJ, passed away on January 26, 2018. He was born in Charleston, WV, to Fred and Helen (Hicks) Greybill, and was the 8th of nine children. Phillip graduated from St. Albans H.S. He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Marine Corp, attaining the rank of Gunnery Sergeant. He served one tour in the Korean War and two tours in the Vietnam War.

Phil met the love of his life, Audrey, in New Rochelle, NY, where he was stationed with the Marine Corps. They married at St. Gabriel RC Church in New Rochelle, NY, in 1960. Phil was absolutely devoted to his wife of 57 years. On retiring from the military, Phil and Audrey moved to England, his wife's home country, where he had the opportunity to meet many of Audrey's family. After several years, they returned to the U.S. and settled in Freehold where Phil worked for Racal Milgo as NE Regional Technical Support Manager. After his retirement, he and Audrey made an extended visit to England, ultimately retiring to Toms River in 2001.

Phil liked to keep active both in body and mind. He pursued many hobbies, and loved to be outside working in the garden with his wife Audrey, or running at Cattus Island Park. He was a great collector of many things, his current interest being stamps. Phil also enjoyed photography and reading, with a particular interest in Roman history. He was a communicant at St. Justin the Martyr RC Church, and an usher at Sunday noon mass.

Phillip was predeceased by his beloved wife Audrey; his siblings: Fred Greybill, William Greybill, Jean Blake, Jacqueline Allison, Thomas Greybill, Nancy Mosteller and Gerald Greybill. He is survived by one brother John Greybill and his sister-in-law Kitty Greybill and many nieces and nephews, both in the United States and the United Kingdom. Phil appreciated the kindness and humor of his friends, and will be remembered, to quote a former work colleague, "as a force to be reckoned with, and with much love and affection by those who are left to mourn him."

Visitation will be Sunday, February 4, 2018, from 1 to 4 PM, at the Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home, 703 Main Street, Toms River. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday at 11 AM at St. Justin the Martyr Church, 975 Fischer Boulevard, Tom River, NJ. Burial will follow at St. Joseph's Cemetery in Toms River.
