Phil Pilgrim, Rest in Peace (January 13, 2023, age 73)



  • I used to frequent the forums here back in the day when the P1 was new and Phil was a member I recall shared his great knowledge with all who asked. That I remembered him from forum discussions over 16 years ago is a symbol of how helpful he was to me and how kindly he presented himself even in the more dramatic topics (ah, the old Dr Jim days).

    This is a sad thing to see coming back here. I hope his family can find some peace and comfort in what must be a very difficult time.

    RIP Phil, sad news indeed.

  • I remember having some of my questions answered by Phil back on the old forum.
    The Tips and Tricks thread for the P1 would be alot smaller if it weren't for Him.
    All the images, conjured in my mind, from the time he was using the camera scan lines with the P1 to detect critters in his home(Basement I think).
    Thank you Phil, Rest in Peace.

    Brilliant. A man of his word. Couldn't stand to let people down.

    I was searching kingdom come for a schematic to #32900 and instead found this gutting news. Fishsticks!

    Pi Day (3.14) is next Tuesday, a day when PhiPi both got and gave some friendly ribbing. I'm trying to think of a worthy post to make in honor of our good friend.

  • Wow it's been awhile since I popped in and here is this news. RIP Phil. He was always a great help to anyone who needed it, including me.

    It has obviously been way too long since I checked in here. I am absolutely heartsick. Phil was always so kind and generous with his time and sage advice. I will certainly miss him - as I know will all his students.

    I still have quite a bit of code snippets Phil worked up for me. He was a generous, wonderful guy.
