I just heard about Phil’s passing. My condolences to the family. Phil will always have a kind place in my heart from the times we worked at Oglebay. I had the honor of having Phil teach me how to drive the train at the Good Zoo. He was patient and kind towards all.

A LIFE LONG FRIEND SHIP STARTED AT CATHEDRAL GRADE SCHOOL IN 1955 WHEN WE MET FOR THE FIRST TIMEIN THE 2ND GRADE AS THE SCHOOLS WERE BEING SEGREGATED. HIS SMILE AND ALWAYS JUST BEING GENUINE AT ALL TIMES OPENED OUR FRENDSHIP . NO MATTR WHERE EVER WE MET THROUGH OUT OUR LIFE IT WAS THE SAME PHILP. I HAD THE PRIVILEDGE WORKING WITH HIM AT OGLEBAY PARK FOR 6 YEARS AFTER WE BOTH RETIRED. HE WAS SO PROUD WHEN HE WOULD DRIVE THE LITTLE TRAIN AROND THE ZOO WITH ALL THE LITTLE CHILDREN. WITH HIS SMILE ON HIS FACE AND HIS SOFT SPOKEN JESTERS HE MADE THESE CHILDREN THINK THEY JUST ROAD THE BEST RIDE EVER. PHIL YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY FRIEND AND SOME DAY WE MAY MEET AGAIN IN THE EVER LASTING LIFE GOD HAS FOR US BOTH. MAY GOD BLESS YOU. MY CONDOLENCES TO THE HUNTER FAMILY.

Hunter family,

I only knew Phil for a short amount time while at Oglebay Park. We worked side-by-side on many projects there during the summers. He was such a kind and helpful man to me and many others there. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to you all. RIP, Phil.
