Phil - I know we lost touch after we retired, but you were a good friend and I will miss you Buddy. We shared lots of stories and life events at Whirlpool over the many years we worked together from being Quality Analysts, to Layout Tech.-and finally when they promoted us to Metrology Engineers. We shared a lot.
Debbie he talked about you so much. I knew you two would end up married. Phil I’m gonna miss you but will cherish the stories, jokes, pranks, forever.
