They’ve played in church orchestras, served in church worship teams, and have shared their lives with church members. Phil knew Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and lovingly shared the hope of Christ with all he came to know.
In addition to his wife, Phil is survived by his son, Patrick Brewbaker, his daughter, Jennifer Hunkovic, Maryellen’s son, Monty Godfrey, and her daughter, Shelby Turner. Phil was also blessed with nine grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
