Phillip A. MacDonald, 48 of Malden, suddenly passed away in Old Orchard Beach, ME. Phil was a goofy, kind soul who loved his family and friends. Phil was a lover of classic rock, the Patriots, and all things animals- especially dogs. He was a chef to his friends and family, always offering to cook and host barbecues. He loved any excuse to get the family together, and was great at making sure everybody felt welcome. He spent many hours gardening, and taking pride in his yard.
Phil was the type of man that would give you the shirt off his back, and drop everything to help out somebody in need. He was a rock for his family and his many friends. Phil gave great advice, and was always willing to listen. He had a calming presence that many people found comfort in.
He beamed bright every time he talked about his pride and joys, his daughters. Everybody who knew Phil knew how proud he was of his girls. He was a supportive and proud father, and talked about his daughters’ every chance he got. He was also a great husband, devoting himself to his wife and spoiling her every opportunity he had. Together they spent much time watching the Animal Planet and just enjoying one another's company. Late DHL Express Driver & member of Teamsters Local 25 Boston.
Phil touched many lives throughout the year’s he is a caring soul that will be deeply missed by many.
