Phil was a great person to me. I'm pretty sure we were in kindergarten together, if not... we were friends at a very young age. He and Jim were an amazing combination. They were Demarcos bodyguards, and we all loved them both. I haven't cried for a while, but I can't help shed a tear now because Phil was "One of the good ones" I guarantee all our friends had very kind and tender feelings for Phil. Rest in Peace my brother, I will never forget how good you were to me! Thanks Buddy!

We lived across the street from Phil's family in Midvale when he was just a kid, and a good one at that. He was always good to go out of his way to make sure and say "Hi" and ask how the family was doing whenever he saw any of us. He was a good soul and will be missed.

Phillip worked for me at Francesco's when he was just a kid. I remember him as a sweet, goofy kid. So sorry for your loss
