Phillip worked as a construction laborer when he arrived in Nebraska and quickly became an expert concrete finisher. He and Michelle divorced in 2001.

In 2008, Phil accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior and joined Greater St. Paul COGIC. Phillip was passionate about music and could often be found listening to all his favorite old school, classic R&B, and gossip albums. Phillip was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing with the men in his family. Along with loving good music and the outdoors, he also loved a home cooked meal. His was favorite meal was fried chicken, meatloaf, mash potatoes, gravy and lemon meringue pie washed down a Cherry Pepsi. Above all, Phillip’s family meant the world to him and he would often let that be known with no hesitation. He was unendingly proud of his grandchildren.
