We are so sad to hear of Phil's passing. We played many rounds of golf together and many laughs and stories as well. Our thoughts are with all of the Sherwood family at this difficult time.

To everyone that was close or related . I am so sorry and sort of lost track of Plupe. He was a good friend and classmate. I have many memories and will never forget. A true sport and all around good person. Wish I had spent more time with him in the later years . My thoughts and memories will always remain.
