Jane, We are so saddened and so very sorry to hear of the loss of your dear John. You were always my two favorite people at Brandywine. John brought laughter to any occasion, and I loved the way he looked at you, with that twinkle in his eyes, as if you were still on your first date. Please, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. With love and sympathy, Patty (Curtin) Radabaugh

To the Phillips family, Having worked with Tom for many years, and having taken care Mr. Phillips (John, as he always told me to call him), I can see how hard it is to lose him, but the good memories always seem to come through at a time like this. Hopefully that will ease your pain. Bill & Melissa Amatucci

Jane--John was a favorite golf partner to all of us. One time he and I lost ten bucks each and our opponents skipped the bar and the drink they should have bought. Didn't bother John: we sat down at the bar and ordered two manhatans apiece from Clarence and put it on their bill. You and he are in my thoughts and prayers. Jim Proctor.

I worked with John at Curtin & Pease when we were still at the University of Toledo. Our offices were in the Spitzer building. Yes john was a great golfer but I still played with he, Jim Curtin and Gene Pease, usually out at PT. Place, nice and flat. God bless John. AL Donnelly, Sarasota ,Fl.

John and I were Fraternity Brothers at the University of Toledo in 1950. I'm sorry I didn't know he lived so close to me or I would have tried to visit with him. My wife Pat and I send our deepest sympathy
