Obituary of Philip F. Sanfilippo

Philip F. Sanfilippo Pine Bush, NY Philip F. Sanfilippo entered into eternal rest on August 15, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He was 64. Phil was born on February 29, 1956 in Englewood, NJ to the late Benedetto and Antonina Sanfilippo.He enjoyed nothing more than being around family and friends and gave his love whole-heartedly. Ever since he was very young he had a love of anything to do with trucks. Birthday and Christmas celebrations brought whole fleets of Tonka trucks. Phil would take the trucks into the backyard and pretend that he was at a truck wash. His love of trucks came to fruition when he was 17 and able to hit the open road in an 18-wheeler. Truck driving continued throughout his life with him becoming an owner-operator. Phil was a fun-loving person who always enjoyed a good laugh, sometimes at his own expense. A wonderful husband, father, stepfather, grandfather, brother, uncle, brother-in-law and friend who will truly be missed. Survivors include his wife of 20 years, Mary at home. His son Philip and his wife Deidra of Doylestown, PA, daughter Jenna of Doylestown, PA, stepson Michael Kinsley at home, grandsons Jack and Lucas, sister Theresa and her husband Kerry of Richmond VA, sister Denise of Port St. Lucie, FL, brother-in-law Frank of Stuart, FL, niece Marissa of Richmond, VA, nephew Douglas of Port St. Lucie, FL, great-nephew Benny and great-niece Stella of Port St. Lucie, FL and his life-long friends Pete and Timmy.
