A native of Marietta, Ohio, Phil was the son of the late Russell and Jean Marie Behm.

Phil worked at Perfection Gear in Asheville for 40 years as a design engineer. He always said to the kids, if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. He loved his job and all the people with which he worked.

His life motto was, “This too shall pass.”
