Note from Phil Henry's wife, Ellen: "
I wanted ya'll to know that Phil died Monday, the13th after an almost 4 year battle with Melanoma. He was at home, on hospice, for the last week. His last marathon was the Mardi Gras Marathon in New Orleans in 2017. He ran it slowly with our youngest son, a family friend's daughter who he had mentored in running marathons and a 70+ year old friend who was running his first marathon. It was a celebration."
We send our thoughts and prayers to Phil's family and friends. -posted 5/15/19
