Phil and I were partners when it was two men to a squad on the Rockford PD. There was never a dull moment. While the job was tough, we always managed to smile through it.

Phil did a lot for this Country while serving in the USMC. Thanks for your Service Phil.

Our sympathy to your daughters and family. Phil was a great guy.
God bless,
Tom & Susan Gibbons
