Obituary of Philip Stolarski Sr.
Philip was a family man who would be there for anyone that needed him. He was so reliable that friends of the family would call him “Uncle Phil”. When it came to his work as an electrician and a handyman, he made sure that the people who needed his help could contact him any time, day or night. In his own home, which his father-In-Law built, Philip made new kitchen cabinets, stools, flooring, plumbing, and electrical work.
One of the most important things to Philip was his garden, where he would grow much of the food that his family lived on. Whenever there were extras of anything, he made certain to share leftovers with family and friends. With the pumpkins that came from his garden, Philip enjoyed baking pumpkin pies from scratch. Please take a packet of vegetable seeds to plant a plant at home and to always remember how Philip’s love took root in your heart.
