Philip was the son of Evelyn Keller and Joseph Gargan. He raised his family in Neptune, NJ and retired to Brick, NJ. He served in the Navy during the Korean War on the Aircraft Carrier FDR Roosevelt. Phil had a lifelong career of 40 years at NJ Bell. As an avid outdoorsman Phil’s love of nature grew from countless sunrises fishing from the jetties and hours spent hunting pheasants with his German Shorthair Pointers. He was one of the founding members and President of Neptune Soccer Association in the mid 1970’s early 80’s. Acting as a volunteer with other parents in Neptune the number of players grew from a couple hundred to over a thousand kids playing both recreation and travel teams. His contribution as coach referee he enhanced countless lives. As a coach his dream of taking a team overseas became a reality spring 1980 when he chaperoned Neptune’s U16 Boys team as the first American team to travel to Belfast Northern Ireland.

Philip is survived by his loving wife of 63 years Lois Gargan, his 3 children Faith, Timothy and Glenn and Tim’s wife Cathy and two daughters Arax and Ani. Glenn and his 2 sons Jake and Max. Max is currently in Advanced Training at Army Fort Sill Oklahoma.

So Sorry to hear about Phil. He was a great man & a good friend to my Dad. I am happy they are together again.
Lois, thanks for allowing all the Telephone Company retirees to play cards at your home. My Dad would always tell me funny stories about the card games.
Please know you are all in our thoughts & prayers.
