Junior was an amazing Man!!! Mr. Amazing!!! Junior was a phenomenal Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend.

Junior loved the New York Mets. IF you didn't know him for that you knew he was a part of the RAIDER NATION. Boy was Junior a good fisherman, and I tell you the fish he caught were tasty. I don't know if it was because he caught them or they were just good. If you didn’t know he thought he was a singer/songwriter. Junior thought he was Robert Winters (MAGIC MAN). Junior the chef was the best cook everrrrrr! Phillip loved holidays, cookouts, making jokes and singing. Junior was a very hard working man, and anytime his family needed something, he made sure they had it. What an amazing man/provider and friend.
