I just recently read in the Kenmore West alumni news of Phil's passing. I'm very sad for your loss. Phil and I graduated high school together and played in all the musical groups that the school had at that time. What a great player ! Though we lost touch when we started college I'm not surprised to hear how much he continued and contributed to music in the area. An ironic note is that I moved to Canandaigua in 1986 to teach primary general music and often walk by the American Legion where they have a sign board remembering their winning bands from the late 60's. When I do I think of Phil and some of the other high school wind players who played in the Tonawanda Legion Band and would complain about that Canandaigua band. I'm glad to know that he will live on through the music that his many students make in the coming years. Bill Mehls

I am so sad to hear today of my brother Phil’s leaving us for a better place... Phil and I were DK pledge class members in the Spring of 1970. We could have written the script for the movie Animal House. Phil and I were very close. He was my brother in DK but also a brother I never had in real life. A wonderful and unselfish person who always put others first. Phil was in my wedding party in 1976, Binghamton, NY... when my wife (Elaine) andI were married. She hasn’t thrown me out yet after all the DK stories and 44 years of marriage... I wish I could hug all of you and share all the stories of Phil and our times together. He was one very large person with a heart bigger than he was in stature. God Bless you Phill. Cheers ! My best to you and your family... Dobie. Sp’70. Delta Kappa Theta Fraternity

Phil was a student when I was appointed the Band Director in 1968 at Kenmore High School. Phil was my support system as he helped me during my first year of teaching. He was a great friend and we stayed in touchafter I left on 1972 to attend Graduate School. Over the years we stayed in touch. I am saddend to hear of his passing. He was a great friend and cared for everyone he met. He was a great musician and well respected by all.

We were so sorry to learn of Phil's passing. Phil taught my son Dylan the saxophone at Matt's Music for many years on Saturday mornings. He was always patient and had a way of inspiring young musicians. Sometimes he would play his sax as Dylan played his and that was a treat! We won't ever forget Phil. Our deepest condolences to the family. Donna Loliger & family

I’m so shocked and sorry to read about Phil’s passing. He was a dear friend in high school and after. Such a sweet and caring man. My condolences.
