I got reacquainted with Phil in 2015 when I moved into a house across the street from he and his mother. Although I was only there for 18 months we became close friends and I visited him the past two summers while vacationing in Ohio. I got him hooked on “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things”, it's a shame he won't be around to watch their final seasons. Phil had a lot of interest in the history of his neighborhood and for several years he has been a contributor and my main sounding board for the Ashland history websites I have been creating. Anyone viewing those websites should know that they would not be nearly as informative as they are without Phil's assistance. I miss him already.
