Last Saturday night i got home to learn of the passing earlier that day of Phil Mineo. Phil is my old friend Rob's dad, he was a great man who was always kind and generous to all of us in our friend group.
Some of my memories of Phil include how much he loved his baseball card collection. during my brief stint as a collector, Phil and I had some marathon conversations. When I got older and eventually got into a career in public education, we found more common ground as Phil was a lifelong teacher in the public schools; again, some great conversations.
Much love to the Mineo family and all whose lives were touched by Phil...he will be missed!
