Phil died Feb. 3, 2022. Born in Denver, Phil grew up in Princeton. He joined us from Westminster School in Simsbury, Conn.
After two years Phil transferred to the University of New Mexico, earning a degree in political science. Upon graduation he worked at SUNY Stony Brook, N.Y., as assistant to the dean of students. There he met Betty, and they married three years later.
Phil and Betty moved to Syracuse University, where he earned a master’s degree in higher education administration in 1972. He became student activities director at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, retiring in 1993.
After retirement Phil enjoyed time with family and friends, tennis, gardening, and his beloved Red Sox. Friendly and affable, he enjoyed camaraderie in athletic activities.
Phil served as the Democratic town chair in Elbridge, N.Y., and later in Manlius, N.Y. He enjoyed travel, exploring new places and the familiar. A favorite was Grand Manan, an island in the Bay of Fundy, the home of many longtime friends.
Phil is survived by his wife of 52 years, Betty; his son, Steve; and many relatives. The class extends its condolences to all.
