He is survived by his loving wife Ann, his children Lyndon (Lynn), Laurie (Scott), and Michael (Kelly). “Poppa” is also survived by grandchildren Matthew, Nathan, Bennet, Samantha, Lane and Shea. Phil’s exceptional problem-solving skills and ability to relate to people earned him tremendous respect as manager of Human Resources with Merck Frosst where he spent 38 years of his working career.
