Philip was born to Effie and Wilfred, in Malindi, Kenya in 1940 he moved to Nakuru where he lived with his family; Leslie, Dorothy, Linda, Francis and Felix. He emigrated to England in 1969 to make a life here and lived in South London for most of his life. He married Maureen Laurence and was father to Rita and Wilfred and Grandfather to Joshua, Riaz, Oliver, Deen and Ethan.

Philip worked at Tower Hamlet & City Garages based in Whitechapel, London where he worked up until his retirement. He had a special bond with his grandson's Riaz & Deen as he spent time looking after them in their formative years. Phil enjoyed a happy retirement and spent most of his time at the Maple Tree pub just around the corner from where he lived. If you knew Phil, you knew he liked a tipple and a cigarette as well as watching Formula 1 and sports in general.

We are so sorry to hear the sad and shocking news of dear Adolf’s demise.
While the loss of a loved one is never easy, it is most certainly the hardest when they are taken from us too soon.
May our Lord grant him perpetual rest and you all the strength and courage to bear this very sad loss..
Unfortunately we are unable to pay our last respects but hope the unity of family and friends will be a comfort to you all through this difficult time.
