Philip was a fun loving guy who lived life to the fullest. He had many different things that he enjoyed in life such as skydiving, scuba diving, riding his Harley, hunting, camping, growing a vegetable garden, watching Nascar and UFC and going to the Horse Races or just hanging out with his friends. He enjoyed his job as a Firefighter and served on the Tahlequah Fire Department for many years. Philip owned and operated Arrowhead Exterminating for over 30 years. He attended college at NSU where he was “Phi Lamb by Damn” and where he also earned his Master’s Degree. Philip enjoyed Rock and Roll music and the Blues. His favorite song of all time was “American Woman”. With his love for scuba diving he and Marcie had a destination wedding in 2011 at Turks & Caicos. Philip was a very proud Republican and wanted everyone to know where he stood. Philip touched many lives through the different aspects of his life and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
