Sad News

He was a warm, generous, loving, funny guy.

We have sad news. This past Tuesday, May 16th, we lost my father unexpectedly.

His death has caused a deep hole in our lives and in my heart.

He was born on October, 14th, 1925 in Easton, MD. He was the youngest of four siblings, three of which have passed away before him.

He was a patriotic man, having served three years in the Army Air Corp as a pilot (joining the Army Air Corp at 17 years of age - his mother had to sign for him to join up as he'd told her he'd run away and lie about his age if she didn't.) and 25 years in the Air Force as a Pilot and Flight Instructor, specializing in Radio Communications.

His love for the Air Force was only equaled by his love for his family. He traveled all over the world and the country during his career in the military. He retired in 1969 as a Major, turning down the Lt. Colonel position in favor of retirement as he would have had to serve two more years. His thoughts were with his family as he was then stationed at the Pentagon - having one of the highest security rankings at that time. Being a far sighted man, he didn't feel that the Washington DC area was a safe or good place to raise his family. He retired with his family to Niceville, Fl and lived there for 6 years. He then took his remaining family (his oldest daughter, Sharon, already had graduated from High School and was married to her high school sweetheart and living in Germany) to Pickens, SC.

After 30 years in SC, he returned with his wife to Easton, MD where he lived in a retirement community briefly before moving outside of Easton to Hurlock, MD where he passed away in his sleep at home unexpectedly. He had not been ill.

He was witty and quick to come up with comments and observations. He could, after being retired for almost 36 years, still give his name, rank and serial number, remember dates he took various courses in Airplane Maintanance and humorous stories of his military life and the people he served with.

He is survived by his wife of almost 58 years, a daughter (myself) and a son, Phil Jr., three grandchildren and two great-grand children. He had been pre-deceased by a daughter, Sharon, his sister, Annabelle and his brother, Howard.

He was buried with military honors on Monday, May 22nd.

We will miss him terribly.
