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

Phil didn’t post much but was well known by a handful of forum members.

Phil was a very good friend and best Corvette buddy. Over the years, we had participated in many Corvette shows, Corvette trips, and as several here know, VIR, the NCM and USAF Museum runs of late, and a regular at the Wax & Chats.

Originally from Medford, OR, Phil (67) he 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.

Sad that he's gone, but glad he's no longer in pain. I didn't know Phil well, but did socialize at a number of vette events, and like him tremendously. I'll miss him.

Really am going to miss Phil. He was fun to be around and had a great sense of humor. Loved being with him during our trips to VIR and the Air Force Museum. A fun time was had by all. RIP Phil.

So very sad. I knew his prognosis wasn't good but I continued to pray for a miracle. Phil was an easy guy to like. I'll always remember Wax & Chat II and riding with him in his beautiful Z06 (with the top down). Looking back, I'm glad I got to spend some time with him last November at NCM.

Rest in Peace Phil

Norm, very well done tribute by you for Phil. I didn't know him real well but we had corresponded with both of us having the Blade Silver C7 in common and coincidentally another model silver Corvette also in the stable. Seemed like a great guy.

Rest in Peace silverVert

So sorry to read this news. I reached out to him last year as I recognized a treatment he was having as I have gone through a similar battle. Didn't get much info from him about his struggle but wanted to reach out to offer an ear. Truly disappointed he was lost this curse of a disease.

Norm, thanks for the heads up. I enjoyed reading his threads and post on SRF. Phil, another Brother has transferred to Heaven to serve at his final post.
