Philip was a great man of his Catholic faith and loved his family. He was a parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church and held many positions within the church, such as Eucharistic Minister, Lector, and volunteered his time cutting grass and working around the church. He also worked in the Oilfield Marine Transportation. Later, he bought a trawl boat called Seagull to have more time with his family and help with the business. He and his wife owned and operated Pat’s of Chauvin’s Clothing Store for 52 years. His family was very important to him, he enjoyed cooking and traveling with his wife Pat, and enjoyed family gatherings. Philip was sincere, most generous man and loved by all. He loved taking care of his lawn and all the neighbors as well. Philip leaves a beautiful legacy behind to be carried on for generations. He was led by faith and not by sight. He is now joined with his heavenly father and now rest in the arms of his Savior.
The family would like to thank Dr. Abous-Issa, Dr. Alexander, Dr. Abbin, Bayou Homecare, Haydel Memorial Hospice, Fr. Philp and Fr. Brunet for their love and spiritual guidance.
