Phillip was called to his eternal home on March 16, 2021, at the age of 88.
He was a beloved husband to Phyllis (Nagy) for 66 years; a devoted father to Phillip Jr, Denise (deceased), Dale, Corrine (Robert Stone), Kathy (Randy Volm), and Paul. A cherished grandfather to Phillip III, Lucas, Jessica, Tracy, Andrea, Michelle, Robert Jr, Ryan, Angela, Paul and Kyle. Also, survived by Mary Jane (sister), many nieces and nephews, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, relatives and an abundance of friends.
Phillip was born in 1932 during the Great Depression and moved from Iron River Michigan to the south side of Milwaukee in 1944 and was drafted in the United States Army in 1952 to serve during the Korean War. Phillip’s biggest accomplishment in his life was marrying his wife, raising their children and grandchildren, and building businesses (Verville’s Bar & Ballroom). Phillip enjoyed life and everything that came with it. He loved socializing and telling stories of the family’s history and wisdom he continued to gain over the years. Phillip leaves us with life lessons to “be who you are, have faith in yourself, but most importantly, have faith in the Lord and take whatever God hands you.
Visitation will be held at 10 a.m. until the service begins at the church. Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 20, 2021 at Highland Community Church, 800 River Road, Marathon. The Rev. Brian Whitaker will officiate. Meal will be provided immediately following the service. Burial will be in the Veterans Cemetery, King, WI, at a later date.
