Philip was a proud cowboy, father, grandfather and so many more titles. He loved to talk about his family and his Creole traditions, often speaking in the Creole language. He treasured his children and guided them with an unyielding hand and raised them to have a strong work ethic just as he did. Philip loved to cook and entertain, feeding everyone. He was an open and honestman that never met a stranger. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him, may he rest in peace.
