Throughout his life, he spent hours outdoors hunting and fishing. An avid Gun Collector, Phil belonged to the NRA and Ark Valley Gun Club. He had a passion to be on the shooting-range, often enjoying a day of friendly competition with his fellow members. Most importantly he adored his grandchildren, loved spending time with them, and shared with them his interest in the great outdoors.
