My dad, Larry Snider thought alot of Phil. I know he would want me to light a candle for Phil from him and our family. I always knew Phil by dad saying he was going to the quarry to go fishing. I worked with Vera at Chief's as well. The Larry Snider family extends our condolences and prayers to Phil's family now and in the coming days my god bless you all with wonderful family memories. Dad passed one day after Phil did.

Phil was a rock for my family. He was loving, welcomed all to join his family of friends, and cared deeply for his family. Praying for each of you.
