Phill was born May 30, 1927 and grew up in the Murray Hill neighborhood. He recently lived in Bainbridge Township for the past 24 years previously spending many years in Aurora where he raised his family. He graduated from East High School and spent his career with Anderson Overhead Door Company where he retired as Operations Manager. Phill was also a proud U.S. Merchant Marine Veteran. He gave his time as a member of Lions Club of Bedford, ISDA, Murray Hill Retirees, and several Veteran’s organizations. He enjoyed playing the Ohio Lottery and especially loved socializing with his family and friends, as he called it his “doings.” Sunday dinners with family was always special for him. Phill was a proud ‘Man’s man’ and a true family man. He was always fun loving and very proud to be a first generation Italian American and to have served his country. He will be dearly missed by his family and many friends.
