    The passage of your dad, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend is a time for sadness. The heart that Phil (and Marie) had for others is a rare gift to the many people who had the privilege to know them. Wishing all of you moments of peace and comfort as you remember Phil’s remarkable life. Please accept my condolences.

    I worked with Phil for 10 years at Marathon Electric. I remember him as a patient, funny, and good-natured man. He was my friend as well as my mentor. My deepest condolences to Phil’s entire family.

    I am sending this to Phil and Maries family. I worked with the two of them for many years. They were at my wedding. They were friends and I am sure they will be missed by many. I am sorry to see they are both gone. I am sorry I cannot attend the funeral, as I am in Flordia. I will keep you and them in my prayers. May they rest is Gods arms. Mary Eggebrecht
