I was privileged to meet and admire Phil later in his long, distinguished life as he worked tirelessly to help make the semi-annual Prosser Library Book Sale a resounding success. My heartfelt condolences to Cheryl and to the other members of his family, Nancy Mattoon Kline (UConn Class of 1959)

I am saddened to hear of Phillips’s passing. I had the pleasure of seeing him every four weeks for his haircut. He was always so positive and had interesting stories. He made me laugh when he would search his pockets for his little black book, wallet, pen and glasses. He will be missed.
