    I grew up next door to Philip and his family. We did everything together for years and remained friends always. I regret that my health issues will prevent me from being at his service. Love to all of his family.

    I’m going to miss my friend, my pew mate and “tote bag stealer”. One of the kindest, funniest, caring man ever. What an awesome legacy he left to all the baseball players he coached and mentored. Praying for God to give you peace and comfort thru these days.

    Philip BASS was a well thought of Classmate (CLASS 65), who I always remembered because we are born on the same day.
