Phil loved that he was a life long resident of Cayuga- only living away for college. He was always proud of his father starting his Wright Ice Cream, and followed in his entrepreneurial footsteps by opening his own security business, Alarmax Inc. in his 30s with only 100 dollars. He loved his work and stayed up to date with the latest technology. Phil liked to stay up with the latest social technology, enjoyed learning, and all forms of music.

He loved his family and considered it one of the most important things in his life, like his faith. As a member of the Gideon organization, he loved telling others about Jesus, giving out Bibles and seeing others make a commitment to Christ. Phil was an active member of Calvary Baptist Church in Tilton, Illinois.
