Born in North Tonawanda, New York, on January 1, 1952, he was the son of William and Eileen Mumbach. Phillip had an incredible talent for poetry and writing.

He also was a quick wit with jokes, and could make light of most any situation with a quiet and deadpan delivery.

Phillip thoroughly enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys and Notre Dame, especially whenever they would win.

He often took his family on vacations throughout the year and made sure everyone could get together every holiday.

He loved his wife, kids, and grandkids more than anything, and that love extended to his brothers, and sisters, in-laws and their families.
