He spent the last of his retired years antique picking. Phil was an avid animal lover, particularly fond of dogs and horses, such as his four-hooved grandson, Marcus. Phil had a deep passion for music and the sport of football. He had a great sense of humour, and his laughter was contagious.

Memories are like threads of gold, they never tarnish or grow old. Just as you are you will always be, Loved and cherished by your family.
