        Wow. What a shock. Phil was doing well and getting ready for his next procedure. :-(

        He helped me on more than one occasion with our Explorer and sensor issues. Made life much easier with his knowledge and insight.

        Rest in peace, Phil. You will be missed by one and all.

          WOW - Very Sad News....... Steve, thanks for sharing it with us here.

          Yep, Phil helped me out numerous times with issues I had with my wifes' '02 Taurus and my '94 and '06 Rangers.

          I know I always really liked to hear about his progress and outings with his 'flat back' Stang.....with the seriously fat 'stance!

          I'm glad your pain & suffering has ended, OLD_FORD_TECH,,,,, RIP, Phil......

            I wish Americans wouldn't take advice on complex social issues from people that make their living from the talents they learned in kindergarten; singing, dancing, coloring, playing pretend, tossing balls, telling jokes...
            Pay attention to the people who think and highlight honesty.

              ........... I'm thinking I may post --- something --- on the funeral home page for Phil....just a short & simple something to let his family know how Phil reached out....reached out to even us folks here in Michigan.

                Wow . . . I did NOT see this coming. What crushing news. I posted a message on his Legacy obit. He was a GREAT asset to our family here and a GREAT friend.

                  Sad to hear this about Phil

                  A couple years ago I met up with Phil at the drag strip and he was as humble in person as he seemed on the computer screen. That day I luckily won the class I was in. It was a loooong day and when the final round finally was over the place was pretty much a ghost town. But when I got back to the car trailer Phil/Family came by to congratulate me. I thought that was really nice n cool of him to stick around so long that day. Last Fall I could tell Phil's health was not well when I PM'd him about maybe meeting up at the local tracks Fall Ford day but he said that he just couldn't make it and didn't want to be a bother to anyone.

                  We've lost one of the good guys for sure!!!

                  Rest In Peace my Friend.
