Phil worked at Enterprise Products for 38 years before retiring in April of 2022. He spent a majority of his career working for the Measurement Department where he made many life-long friends. He was known for his knowledge in the field, strong work ethic, no-nonsense attitude and treating his co-workers with respect.
As a child Phil participated in the Mini Mustangs, a basketball ball handling organization that traveled around Kentucky to perform. One of his more impressive tricks was being able to spin the ball on his finger while doing a forward roll. He also played football in high school. Basketball remained a passion throughout his life. He enjoyed both playing and watching. He spent many Wednesdays and Sundays playing pick-up games at the “Old Gym.” Phil coached his daughter and her classmates on their Barbers Hill Sports Association teams and in All-Stars. He helped his daughter coach his oldest grandson on his Little Dribbler team. He was an avid UK fan and enjoyed traveling to watch the Cats with his family and friends.
Phil enjoyed talk radio and spent countless hours sitting in his truck listening.
