Along with being a great ‘supporter’ and occasional ‘artiste’ with the Drama Club, playing in ‘Big Bands’ and his love of all things ‘jazz’ was an important part of Phil’s life – where he complemented his main interest in the trombone with that of playing the saxophone, guitar and harmonica. He amassed a vast collection of vinyl recordings of the musicians that he admired – including that of the one and only ‘Spike Jones’ whose zany humour was something that always managed to get him rolling over with laughter.
Phil’s kind and thoughtful friendship will be missed by the many MDC members who knew him during the years that he and Norma were involved..
Phil was a quiet, kind and good friend – his sense of humour was, of course, a bonus!
