Although I did not know this fine gentleman personally, I always enjoyed saying hello to him and wishing him well whenever I would see him, especially sitting in the front office when I would come in for early choir practice. I will miss his wonderful smile and friendliness. May his memory be eternal!
I will miss this guy, our chats, our love for Father Kavadas, the way Phil’s eyes twinkled when we talked about him, the stories of how he stood up for the truth, just seeing him sitting in the church office smiling and giving him a hug. I will never forget Phil.
One of my best friends. He taught me so much about hard work ethic and finding love in the simple, yet meaningful, things of life. I will miss our early Sunday morning talks, Mr. Phil.
Ο Θεός να τον αναπαύσει.
Enjoying the Assumption Greek Festival!
Phil always had a smile for everyone. He was good friends with our Theo Costa.
You will be missed!
