Not sure what to say?

He was a true gentleman. Always kind, always interested in what you were doing and always ready to listen whether it was a good story or a gripe. He lived the "west" and was "of the west." Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer men like him around.
He loved his family and cared deeply about them. He loved what he did and did what he loved. He will be missed...deeply.

Phil was an Arizona original, a modern day gentleman cowboy. He was knowledgeable about farming and livestock and a pioneering businessman to boot. He was a friend to the Moultons for many years, be it confidence in an agricultural venture or a little over the phone veterinary advice Phil was always there. He always had a smile or a funny story, and he always made you feel welcome.
We are glad to have known him and we will miss him.

Kathy and family....

We were so sorry to hear about your dad. We know he will be greatly missed!!!! Our prayers are with your and your family.

A generous and great man. He was my “American dad”. I will always remember him.

Dear Judy and family, we are so saddened with the loss of our friend Phil. His wit, humor and knowledge was most appreciated, and he always had a friendly suggestion to my questions. Our love to you and the family and stay strong with the dear memories of this wonderful man.

Phil was a very special friend over the years. We work on Phoenix transit issues and fought against animal abuse. His sense of humor, compassion and community spirit made this a better world. Thelda

Dear Phil,
We had 10 or so great years together back in the 40's. Your house on Yale, mine on Virginia. A couple of Huck Finns, on occasion, riding Geronimo down the canal bank to Creighton.. a rope halter is all we needed... something with which to tie him to a tree in the pasture behind the school. So many times we rode our bikes together down 24th St. to get to school. You introduced me to frog hunting in the empty irrigation ditches... and we did our part in WW2 by throwing clods...

Phil made the world a better place. A good man and a good friend, always ready to lend a helping hand, always with that sparkle in his eyes and sincere smile on his face.
