Phillip was killed with his Sgt David Hart and his best friend Ivan Merlo. He was doing what he wanted to do he was always a adrinaline nut loved the excitment in life. Everyone was his friend. That was very evident when the day of his funeral there were 2000 people in the high school gym. Something he would of loved was the fact that they canceled school for him.
Phil graduated from Roanoke Benson High school where he was active in Soccer, Football, FAA. He also had the act of parting down perfect. We got him a escort to drive in high school how that car made it until he graduated. He had a beautiful fiance Jennie the weekend that he had given her the ring was a great one that we were very lucky to have shared with them in Nashville. In fact we were able to spend it with Ivan and his wife also we had a great time and made alot of great memories.
