Thoughts for Phillip J. Marlotty;

  • Phil and I first met in 2000 as substitute teachers in KUSD. We shared many trials and tribulations and a lot of laughs. His self-proclaimed “Mr. Mean” was a total misnomer; he was a skillful, considerate teacher with a passion for education and a devoted love for kids. When I think of Phil, my face has a smile.


    Father, you will be thought of and missed every single day until we meet again. Loved you always and forever, not only am I going to miss my dad but my best friend to. You are still with me and always will be.

  • Deb and family, you have heart sympathies. May all the happy memories you have shared over the many years help you through this difficult time.
