Colonel after serving as a pilot and a professor at the Air Force Academy. He was a professor of History at Brigham Young University and was professor of the year in 1976.Above all Phillip's greatest joy was teaching, both the gospel and academics. He was loved and appreciated by his students and those he came in contact with because of his love and compassion for everyone. He was able to impact the lives of others, spiritually, academically, and physically. He was truly a disciple of Jesus Christ, and displayed this in every aspect of his life. He is deeply loved by his family.
