As a dedicated Shriner, John embodied the true spirit of their creed - devotion to God, love and respect for family, aid to those less fortunate, and integrity, virtue and nobility of character.
John gave freely of his time and talent, and will be dearly missed by those fortunate to have known him.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Philkill Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following
Slackwood Presbyterian Church Memorial fund
As an Elder and Trustee of Slackwood Presbyterian Church, John actively supported the mission of the church community - to answer the call to be servants of God, inspired by the life of Jesus and led by the Spirit to be people who love, comfort, and empower one another. A donation to the Slackwood Presbyterian Church Memorial Fund would be a tribute to both John's memory and the time he gave in supporting his spiritual community.
Shriners Hospitals for Children
Founded in 1922, the mission of the Shriners Hospitals has been to provide extraordinary care for children regardless of a family's ability to pay. The Shriners Hospitals have focused on specialty areas particularly challenging for children and their families and its multi-disciplinary team concept has evolved in expertise for Orthopaedics, Burn Care, Spinal Cord Injury and Cleft Lip and Palate.
