He was a former member of St. Michael's Catholic Church in Canton and most recently, a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Montoursville. Phil was also an active member and supporter of the church's Knights of Columbus.
He was a compassionate man that possessed a very caring demeanor. He enjoyed nature and all the beauty it offered, particularly the wildlife. The quiet outdoors and its peacefulness he found in the country of Bradford County was truly a blessing Phil treasured. Phillip took great pride in maintaining his lawn and mowing the family's homestead to perfection. He also loved to shop and the thrill of searching for the best deal was something he took pleasure in.
He lovingly leaves behind; wife Margaret "Peggy" of Granville Summit, son; Phillip (Linda) Gasowski and grandchildren; Bennett and Tucker Gasowski all of Gorham, Maine as well as a niece, a nephew, several cousins and his beloved dog, Brandi.
