Phil Hill Passed Away This Am

I was just advised that the world famous Phil Hill passed away at 10:00 AM today.

What a piece of history that has passed.

I spent some good time with him that I will cherish.

My sorrows to his family.

Thank you, Phil Hill

I can tell you that he was a wonderful person.

Somewhat quiet, very unpretentious, and a great talker about politics!

His wife is a very nice person as well, and I am quite saddened for her loss.

His Parkinson's was getting very bad the past 2-3 years such that he was not able to autograph his items. It was tough to watch.

I always enjoyed talking with him. He was a true gentleman and a wonderful person.

He will be greatly missed.
