Phil was a wonderful colleague. He was a consummate professional yet didn’t miss an opportunity to find humor in the moment with that infectious laugh.
Condolences to the Hanel family.

I worked with Phil at the bank and got to know him over the years. He was a great guy! I’m glad he is reunited in Heaven with Peggy. Right now we don’t understand, but some day we will.
