God bless his soul and grant his family peace during this difficult time.

So very sorry to hear of Phil’s passing.  I met Phil through our fishing trips in Canada.  I know he always looked forward to going, and had a great time while he was there.  I’ll always remember the stories and laughs that we shared.  You will be missed Phil.  My deepest condolences to your family.
