Philip Marmo, age 87, passed away on February 6, 2017 after complications from a stroke. Philip was born in Brooklyn on May 30,1929 to Susie and James Marmo.
Phil enjoyed hanging out with jazz musicians in his youth and he had a life-long love of jazz and poetry. Philip served in the armed forces and attended college under the GI bill. Philip worked as an accountant for most of his career and also enjoyed several years driving a school bus.
Phil's greatest love, besides his wife and family, was fishing. He dabbled in other sports, but those that involved fish were his passion. He could be seen on a dock, on a boat or on a beach, sharing his knowledge and his stories. He speared them, he lured them and he reeled them in, but what he didn't do with them, was eat them . . . Until he met Dolores, who cooked Phil's fish in many delicious ways and spent many hours fishing with him.
Phil is survived by Dolores, his wife, brother Vinny and his wife Margo and two grandsons Russell and Vincent; his grandchildren Brooke and Jake Hasluck and their parents Elisa and John Hasluck. Phil is also survived by his niece Gia DeCarolis, her husband Claudio and their children and grandchild.
Phil and Dolores spent many years as snowbirds from Long Island, New York, eventually settling full-time in Stuart, FL.
Phil will be remembered in a private service for his family and also at the Stuart Lodge where he had many friends.
