Phil is astute at quickly sizing up a complex situation, insightful about the human condition, and perceives the ‘the little guy hidden in the corner.’ A family man of the first order — loving, accepting, and nurturing. An ever-evolving, inquisitive mind… this is apparent after nearly 30 years of friendship.
