Phil, a native of Minneapolis, came to Princeton from the Blake School, following a year in the Navy. He majored in philosophy, joined Colonial Club, and was a member of the cross-country and track teams. He was awarded the Fritz Rosengarten Trophy in cross-country. In June 1946 he married Nancy Cary Levis, and they lived off campus his senior year.

After graduation Phil and Nancy moved to Houston, where he went to work for Bemis Brothers Bag Co. In 1956 he joined Owens-Illinois in Toledo as a sales manager, and he, Nancy, and the children moved to Perrysburg, Ohio, their home for the next 30 years. Then Phil spent six years with the Williams Co. in Traverse City, Mich., and returned to Perrysburg, presumably at the time of his retirement.

We have little information about Phil and Nancy’s later years. In 2014 they were listed as living in Montgomery, Ohio, in Hamilton County, near Cincinnati. Phil died May 25, 2020. He is survived by Nancy; their children, Lucy, Jud, Philip, and Christopher; and several grandchildren. We offer our sincere condolences to them all.
