On June 15, 2012, Philip R. Collette left this Earth surrounded by his loving family in Punta Gorda, Florida at Peace River Regional Hospital. Up until then, he had been living in Port Charlotte, Florida where he and his perfect match (Marcella, whom he married 66 years ago) have been enjoying retirement for 32 years. He passed without much discomfort after dealing with failing health for the last few years. This comfortable home was their pride and joy; with beautiful gardens, fruit trees and vegetables that the neighbors envied for many years.
