Phil was one of my best childhood friends. There are so many memories growing up with him as well as being friends with him as an adult. His laugh was great. I always knew if I ever needed help all I had to do was call. He was a true friend. He was hard working and family oriented. The stunts he would do on his bike and motorcycle were crazy. So so many wheelies!!! His love of horses was great. I can still see him singing Hot Blooded LOL. He was and always will be a special friend. Cheridah Miller

Phillip was a great man and will be missed dearly. He fought this battle for a long time and did so bravely. Phil passed peacefully at home with Noah , Emily and I by his side. He fought this battle until he had no more fight left. He was a great man and we will miss him so. We love you Phillip, please rest peacefully and know we will be okay. With loving and heavy hearts, RIP. Pam , Noah , and Emily.:heart:

Phil was my cousin. He was kind, good-hearted, loving and always a pleasure to be around. No matter how many years would go by, whenever you would see or talk again, he always was the same. Until we meet again one day. Our prayers are with Pam, Noah and the entire Hinson family. Love & prayers, Marsha (McCowan) Ditton
