Uncle Phil will be greatly missed. It was always great to see Uncle Phil because I knew he'd have plenty of stories to tell! One of my fondest memories is playing football in the street in front of our home with him and Jamie when I was little. Love you and prayers for all of you!

Uncle Fedele(Phil) made everyone feel like family or a friend. He was the master story teller. Our kids were mesmerized by his many stories by the poolside at the Stevens family reunion in 2010. I fondly remember his funny stories of being a cop in Newark when I was a kid. All of us send our love, prayers an sympathies to Aunt LeeAnne, Jamie, Kristen and the whole family.
