I was saddened to learn of Phillip’s death. I used to stay at his dads home in Searcy and play golf with them both. I worked with his dad at ABF as a manager in Russellville. I miss them both very much

I worked in the Public Health Laboratory and retired in December. My desk was near Phil's for several years and I saw him everyday. I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember his laugh and how much he enjoyed St. Patrick's Day every year. He will be missed by everyone.
