Online Condolences


  1. 3 years without you today
    Your last words to me were “I love you sweetheart don’t be a stranger”
    Those last words were said February 3rd. You happened to pass (unexpectedly) the following day. I’m truly so sorry for being so stuck up in my ways im also very sorry I didn’t do things different (as much as I should’ve). I hope you have found the peace you always dreamt about.
    You will forever be missed
    Until the end of time my loving father
    Thank you for trying your best with every obstacle sent in your direction.The endless maddy and daddy talks holds a special place in my heart and I think about those moments often…

  2. Merry heavenly Christmas dad
    I love you forever

  3. I deeply appreciate and love you, Dad. Thank you for always guiding and loving me throughout all these years. You are, without a doubt, the best dad anyone could ever ask for.
    The lessons you’ve taught, and the memories you’ve helped create are treasures to me.
    Each one is a testament to your incredible role as a father. No gift could ever match the one you’ve given me – the gift of your love, your time, your care. But I hope that my actions, my respect, and my own love for you can at least reflect a fraction of what you truly deserve. I am so fortunate, so blessed, to be able to call you my dad. Your influence has shaped me into the person I am today and for that, I am forever grateful. Thank you for everything, Dad. I love you more than words can express.

  4. 2 years today dad.
    I miss you so much. I hope you have found peace. Please watch over me

  5. Dad thank you for giving the best hugs and also creating memories with me. Our Sunday seekonk speedway days or even our late night horror movie watching those are memories I will never let go of.
    Thank you for giving me the tough love I needed at times. Nothing I can say or do can ever bring you back but you may live on through memory and laughter.
    I hope wherever you are it is somewhere peaceful.
    Love always

  6. Happy birthday dad! I hope you have found your peace and is also currently watching down on all of us. I love you so much

I pray for comfort for your family, especially your daughter, brother Keith and Father, Uncle Phil. You died way too young. May you Rest In Peace, and your spirit live on forever.

  12. Phil, you left us too soon. So many memorable moments, I don’t know where to begin. We shared so many laughs, and had some deep conversations over the years that I’ll never forget. Sunday Sopranos at your house with Keith and all of our friends were some great times. You could bring a smile to anyone’s face the second you walked into a room. You were a loving father with so many great qualities and you will be missed. My condolences to Phil’s family, his loving daughter, and his friends. Rest In Peace, brother.

May you Rest In Peace and to Phil’s daughter I know you’re pain I lost my mother at a young age. Uncle Phil I love you and hope you find peace in the toughest of times.

  15. I feel deeply sad. I’m still in shock.
    But I keep good memories of you.
    You were excellent at making me laugh in the middle of the stress of work, and when you weren’t there I missed listening to your funny comments.
    You were easy to deal with and very understandable.
    I know how much you love your daughter and your family! My prayers and thoughts are with them.
    Thank you for being a good friend in such a short time. Rest In Peace Philip ??

  18. Phil, When you left this world so suddenly my heart spilt in two. One side filled with memories the other died with you. Remebering you is easy, I do it everyday but missing you is heartache that never goes away. I hold you tighly within my heart and there you will remain. You see life has gone on without you but will never be the same. Love always, Missy. My thoughts and prayers go out to Phil’s family and friends..

  19. Uncle Phil, he will always be in your heart. My sympathies to everyone in the family. May Phil Jr R.I.P. ???
