Default A legend passes away.........

The well known and well respected Philip Cardilli of OCEAN HAWK powerboats passed away on Monday June 18th, 2012.

Services to be held on Thursday June 21 at Grace Lutheran 305-888-2871: 254 Curtiss Pkwy; Miami Springs, FL. The service starts at 5:30-6:00 with reception to follow.

For those who knew him and those who didn't, he was truly a great guy and as a not only a friend but also a previous owner of one his boats, he built top notch and never cut any corners.

He will be missed ........

Phil, I enjoyed our time together

I will never forget you........

I think I met Phil at a Miami boat show about 10 years ago, nice guy. We shared a like for lounge lizard deck shoes. If I remember he was younger than me. Prayers to his family.

Yes, Phil was a great guy!

I had known Phil for over 30 years, we got to enjoy great conversations always related to boat building.

He took a lot of pride in his boats and like was already said, he never cut corners on his boats.
A truly great boat builder!

My condolences go out to his family specially his daughter.
I will definetely be @ the service tomorrow.

RIP buddy......
Pepe @ Pantera boats.
