Phil died March 16, 2014, in Newport, R.I.
Born in Gardner, Mass., he attended the local high school before completing his secondary education at the Lawrenceville School. A chemistry major at Princeton, he sang in the choir, participated in wrestling, and was a member of Terrace Club.
After completing his medical studies at Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, he spent a year of internship and a year of residency at the Rhode Island Hospital. He then served two years in the Navy and settled in Newport, where he started a general practice in 1959 that he maintained for more than 40 years.
Our condolences go to his son, Philip Jr., who informed us of his father’s death.
