On May 1st, 2021, Philip Joseph Graziose Sr, loving husband and father of three passed away peacefully in his home at the age of 80 years old. Phil was born November 15th, 1940, on a chilly day in Queens, New York. He lived his childhood days with his late brother Patrick Graziose, where you could have found him scaring the neighborhood girls with his friends. This is where he met the love of his life Veronica Graziose. Together they created a beautiful life in Ronkonkoma, NY with their three sons- Philip Jr., John, and Joseph.
Phil dedicated his life to his family. He loved his three sons and their wives (Colleen, Jaime, and Betty) with his whole heart. He lived each day to make his grandchildren, Laura and her husband David, Nicholas, Tricia, Alex, Jonny, Adam, and Isabella, and the late Rose, proud. Fewer things made Phil more excited than to reunite with his extended family at family reunions and trips to the Outer Banks. He devoted himself to the parish of Holy Cross where he grew pounds and pounds of fresh produce for those who needed it. This was only accomplished with the help of many volunteers who he loved to drive crazy. He had a very special place in his heart for each and every member of the AA community he came in contact with and would beam with pride at the anniversary ceremonies.
Phil was loved by many and will be missed by even more. You can honor him by remembering the goofy, loving, and full of life man he was.
