    Phillip and I both attended Barren County High School and graduated together in 1976. I remember him as being a good person; he always seemed happy with what he was doing.

  3. Wanda K. Salva says:

    Philip was my 1st cousin. We all live in Ohio and didn’t see everyone to often. But I have wonderful memories of him being a fun loving boy. He always seemed to be so happy .He has indeed known some trying times and I pray he is at peace. I loved him so much.

  4. Marcus Pierce says:

    I worked with Philip for several years at RRD on the same machine. We always had a ball working and joking during the shift. He had a sense of humor that made you enjoy being around him and there never being a dull moment. When we talked Bible which he knew extensively I knew he was saved. And I know in my heart that as Billy Graham said when his death was going to be imminent that he has as they say, “gained his wings” and he’s not dead, he’s only changed his address. I will see him again one day possibly at Heaven’s gate to be greeted by him and jokingly hear him say”Marcus, what took you so long”. Prayers for the family as they lay his earthly body to rest

    So sorry to hear of Philip’s passing. Graduated with him at B.C.H.S., attended F.F.A. camp together while in school and then worked together at K-Mart and later on together at R.R. Donnelley. ALWAYS considered him a friend. Prayers and condolences for the family.

    Philip was my cousin and he will be missed by all who knew him. I wish I could be there for his family but I live in Ohio and can’t come. I was just down there but I couldn’t visit him because my uncle had double pneumonia. My love and prayers are with his family at this difficult time. Love You Philip R.I.P
