He worked at several stores though out our region including Tracy, Lodi, Manteca, Lodi and finally was excited to be the Store Manager of a brand new store in Brentwood. Around 2008, after a brief illness & Heart Surgery, Phillip found his dream job combining both his love of music & innate mechanical skills of repairing cars when Ken Cefalo asked him to become the Music Repair Technician for Main Street Music here in Tracy. Phillip was gifted at repairing almost any instrument that came his way. In 1998 Phillip married his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth. They first met as neighbors at the age of 4 becoming inseparable. They attended Tracy Schools together and later CSU Stanislaus. The couple’s biggest accomplishment is their four children: Michael 19, Katherine 15, Rebecca 13 and Helen 10.

He also attended many-many soccer events; TYSL, AFC, and West High Soccer Games for our daughters Katherine and Helen. He never missed any of the kids’ music recitals and band concerts.
