66, born and raised in New Port Richey, lost his battle with lung fibrosis June 29, 2018. He leaves behind his wife, Molly; brothers, Dave and Steve (Nancy); nieces, Jamie, Christy and Shawna; nephews, Steve and Dave. Phil was retired from Pasco County Schools. He enjoyed the outdoors, traveling, spending time with family and his beloved dog, Luke. Phil was never a stranger to anyone he met, his sense of humor, wit, wisdom, and positive outlook on life will be missed. The family will have a celebration of life at a later date. His last wishes: Tell those you care about how much you love them and give them a big hug. Special appreciation to Gulfside Hospice, especially Maryann and Darlene, Philâ€™s guardian angels.
