    I met Phil in the 1970s. We lived in the same multifamily building where Phil was “in charge”. He was always fun to be around. When my husband Dan Sullivan had coronary bypass surgery, Phil was the one who could explain all that was going on medically. He was extremely medically knowledgable.That knowledge helped him on more than one occasion to assist medical personnel who were unable to know how to proceed. Phil knew what to do. I am grateful to have known Phil. Our last contact was when he was in hospice. Rest in Peace Phil.
