Phil served in the U.S. Army and did one tour in Vietnam. He also was stationed in Germany and was in the reserves, being honorably discharged in 1985. He moved to Colorado with his family in 1979. He was married to his wife, Dana from 1969-1993 and they had four children together. He married his current wife, Jodie, in 1993. He loved his family and friends and his love for animals was beautiful. He will be greatly missed.

    I remember Phil from Jr. High and of course BHS. He was always friendly and good to talk to. I am so sorry he is gone but it sounds like he had a wonderful family and thus a beautiful life. Thank you Katherine for letting us know.

    Good morning Katherine. I hope this e mail message finds you and finds you well. BHS class of ’68 now has another published author. My book, “Icicles in the Park” is now published on Amazon and Kindle. It would be great if you could list serve this message to our classmates. Some of them may enjoy reading my work.
