Obituary & Service Info

Philip
 
Philip Gowran Wight passed away Wednesday January 22 at the age of 68 "Phil" was born July 21, 1945 in Richmond Va.
 
He was preceded by his parents Martha & Arthur Wight and survived by his sister Susan Miller, brothers Brian Wight and Lewis Wight and daughters Mia Elinor Crowe (Michael) and Jennifer Fitzhugh. Phil had lived in Tallahassee FL, Maui HI, Blairsville ,GA and Savannah GA.
Also known by family, friends and his clients as ZEP man, has taken his Zepmobil and left for other universes to spread his amazing humor and knowledge. Ever the amusing salesman wearing his creative Zep shirts, he will no longer be giving away free samples to us.
He loved anything with an engine or motor in it. He loved researching everything, and loved his family and friends.
It is our hope he will be exploring his new home as as much as he explored his earth home. He was an avid traveler. Last count was 24 countries.

 

He could grow orchids when others could not. They became his joy when he was home.                                                                                   Phil had never met a person he did not like. His wisdom and wit will be missed by many.
 
The family will receive friends Saturday, January 25th from 1:00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. at Bonaventure Funeral Home. A Memorial Service will follow at 2:00 P.M. in the Chapel of Bonaventure Funeral Home with Deacon Grady Mills officiating. 
 
Memorial Donations may be made to the American Cancer Society .
 
Please leave your thoughts and condolences for the family on our Tribute Wall.
