He acted as color guard for funerals and served as Historian.
Phil held various jobs, enjoying many summers on the road as a truck driver for a local carnival. He was in charge of the safety and maintenance of the rides.

Phil held several positions at the church. He was a member of the choir, song leader most of his adult life, and was a member of Knights of Columbus.
