I served with Phil in C co. 1/2 Marines at Camp Lejeune, NC. In 1979. We have remained friends throughout the years. This picture is of another Marine, Bob Wagner, Phil and myself at Myrtle Beach in 1998. Phil was a good friend and one helluva great Marine.RIP brother, Semper Fi! R.T. Williams

my closest cousin growing up, even though we live hundreds of miles apart.

My cousin Phil was a gentle soul. He will be remembered for some of the silliest things he did when we were kids. I loved him. His greatest asset in life was the bond he had with my cousin, his sister, Dolores, who stepped up to the plate, with heart and love, not just a sense of responsibility.
God bless you, Phillip. I'm sure your parents and Robert were there waiting for you in heaven. Love, Gail Marie Archer Spena aka Cous.
