Wow, I can't believe Phil is passed. Again, I guess I should have stayed in contact with more people from High School. Phil was a really nice guy and I have many fond memories of him from high school.  Rest in Peace.  Anyone know when and how Phil passed.

I remember Phil well - first I dated him and then my sister Pat (two years younger) dated him for quite a while - very nice guy, but lots of troubles.  Sorry to lose him!

Doc was always fun to be with. His Buick Grand Sport was way fast and almost got Jerry Kirkham and I killed running it hard on Michigan Ave. in Chicago. Godpedd Doc!

Phil was one of the guys I hung out with from Nichols Jr. High into ETHS.  He gained the nickname "Doc" as his father was a chiropractor.  I'm certain Phil got tired of the reference we used to make of a "six pack of carrot juice" in conjunction with his father.  All of his friends recall how kind his mother and father would treat us...and, that fondness for them is part of Phil"s family legacy.  It was not uncommon for Hancock, Schwanbeck, Minear and others to check-in with Phil to check out "what's happening."  If nothing, and it was a clear night, maybe "scooping the loop" in downtown Evanston was the thing to do...his father had a heavily chrome adorned Desoto that was perfect for the times...pure retro 60's.  Yes, Phil later had his troubles, as was mentioned, but he remained a friend who always enjoyed a call from one of his ETHS cohorts.  What many may not know, Phil was a Master Plumber, and was very skilled at his craft.  He died suddenly in March, and there was a casual friends and neighbors memorial for him at Prairie Joe's off Central Street...just as Phil would have wanted it.  Rest now...
