He would read the paper every day and was always current on the news of the day. In addition to reading the paper, he enjoyed reading novels about the old west. He was an avid sports fan and could fill you in on the Brewers, Bucks, or Packer game if you missed it. Phil enjoyed listening to music and was a fan of Frank Sinatra and also classic Country Music.
