Default Vette Barn Member Passed

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of VB forum member Phil (forum name SilverVert) from complications of cancer.

Phil didn’t post much, last post here was in '14.

Phil was a very good friend and best Corvette buddy. Over the years, we had participated in many Corvette shows, Corvette trips, VIR, the NCM and USAF Museum runs of late.

Originally from Medford, OR, Phil (67) was an accomplished professional and very highly thought of in his chosen field. Career Army all the way, MP for 20+ years in the states, Vietnam, Korea, Europe, and the Middle East. After retiring from active service as a CWO4, he became a special agent with the Army’s CID specializing in the polygraph field, becoming the program manager in that arena.

Among his many awards, the Legion of Merit, and 7 Meritorious Service Medals

Phil retired a few years ago not long after he lost his wife Pauline to cancer as well.

An avid Corvette owner, his two favorites were his 2000 highly modified silver convertible with a ProCharger, and his current silver Z06 convertible.

I will miss this man immensely, could not ask for a better friend.

Rest in peace Phil.

Got to know Phil about 3 years ago attending Norm’s Wax &Chat I and on other Corvette trips of Norm’s. He was a true gentleman and loved talking about Corvettes. I was along on 2 of the trips to VIR Racetrack and I can tell you Phil loved running his Z fast on the track.
I will miss him. Rest in peace Phil

Sorry to hear. He looks like a great guy who really enjoyed life. Being a Harley guy, the pic of him shooting radar atop the Sportster was awesome. May he rest in peace.
