Barrett (Phil) Phillippe, 82, of Port Orchard was born in Vincennes, Indiana on March 25, 1940. He entered Heavens gates on September 24, 2022.
Phil was preceded in death by his parents, John and Beatrice, and wife Linda.
He was married to the love of his life, Linda for thirty-four years.
Phil is survived by his daughters Tina (husband - Mike) Acosta, April Schley, Tracey (husband - Bret) Saxey, Shelley (husband - Mike) Iten, son Brett (wife - Tifini) Wentz, grandsons Nicholas and Spencer, granddaughters Kiana, Casey, Emma, Paige, Kennadi, Mikalya, and great grandson Austin. He is also survived by his sister Norma Jean, as well as many other loving relatives and close friends.
Phil was a boilermaker for most of his life and retired in 1996. From that day on, he devoted his life to his wife, children, and grandchildren. Phil will be remembered for his amazing love of his family and friends. He loved attending all his grandchildren’s events: soccer, football, baseball, Bremerton Youth Symphony, and so much more. We will miss his clever personality and his ability to make everyone laugh.
Phil was a storyteller. From his days in the Air force, to his days as a boilermaker, and adventures with his lovely wife, Linda. He had such a knack for telling stories, you always looked forward to hearing more. He loved to camp and fish with Linda. Some of the stories he told of those days, were some of the best.
Phil will always be remembered for his generosity. If he was at a restaurant and saw a person in uniform, he would pick up the check for them. He never needed them to know he did it, it was just his way of silently saying thank you for your service.
A celebration of life to honor Phil will be announced to family and friends in the near future.
