RIP Paul Phillips - Life lived to the fullest. He graduated SE Catholic '41 with my Father. Everytime we and our children saw your Father at Millay/Neumann fuctions we made a point to tell Him Jack Carpenter was our Father. Your Father's face lite up with stories and asking about our Parents, us and our kids. My Parents always spoke highly of your Father and the great times. They are now reunited again!

Rest in peace, my friend. Paul was a co-worker of mine with Sears for about 4 years in the late 70's and early 80's. Paul was one of the kindest, nicest people I've ever met.

Chris, Carol, Sarah, Jess and the entire Phillips family,

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of dad/gpop, who was such a kind and loving man. May you find peace in knowing how well you cared for him in that same loving spirit. I hope once your deepest grief passes you will smile when you think of him, as he always had a great big smile for everyone else, regardless of how he was feeling. It was an honor and pleasure to have him in our family for so many years. God bless you all. In peace and love, Charlie and Sue

He was an easy man to like. The first day I met him it was like a knew him forever. The Phillips family shopuld have nothing but pride in their hearts.

You did good, you took great care of him and expressed a sense of love for him so many other fathers never see!

I have known Paul for over 18 years from our time on the St. Patrick's Day Observance Association. Paul was the classic example of a Catholic gentleman and a tireless leader in our community. We will all miss Paul very much as our world is much smaller without him. It was an honor to know Paul over these years. God bless Paul and all his children.
