Notes

Beloved husband, father, son, was killed while riding his motorcycle home from work on Monday, August 3rd, 2015.

Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, he will be greatly missed by his wife, Christine, daughter, Adele, of Raleigh, NC, parents James and Katharina Sabino of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, his brother Victor Sabino (Ellen) of Las Vegas, NV, sister-in-law, Amy Kemp, brother-in-law, Bill Kemp (Cindi), sister-in-law, Jennifer Barrows (Mike), Uncles and cousins in Switzerland, and many well-loved nieces and nephews.

He attended Virginia Tech, was an active member of the Phi Sig fraternity, and graduated in 1993, with a degree in Management Science. He went to work as an Information Technology Consultant, and for the past 17 years was an employee of SciQuest, one of the few employees who had been at the company since its inception.

Known by his colleagues as a dedicated, loyal, hard worker, who went above and beyond, he was also able to get people to smile and laugh. Phil worked with clients of all strengths and sizes to understand the best options for their business and was the individual always chosen for the toughest assignments.

His friends describe him as gentle, kind, selfless, fun loving, hardworking, happy, and funny.

Phil loved the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, camping, and even yard work brought him hours of enjoyment. His hobbies included, scuba diving, sailing, auto mechanics, wood working, racecar driving, remote control helicopters, history, reading and motorcycle riding.

Most of all Phil loved his family. He was a wonderful husband, best friend and pillar of strength to Chris, who could not have asked for a better man to share her life with. To Adele, he was her one and only hero, dedicating hours every night to spend time with her playing games, reading, and doing artwork. They also enjoyed fishing, rock climbing and going to Jersey Mike’s every weekend. No drive was too long to visit our many long distance family members.

He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

In the spirit of Phil’s love of family and friends, a gathering will be held at Renaissance Funeral Home at 7615 Six Forks Road on Thursday, August 6, 2015 from 4-7 PM.

The family would like to thank the motorists who called 911 for help after the accident, the first responders who arrived to try and help him, and most of all to the two women who rendered aid to him. We take comfort in knowing every effort was made to save his life.

An education fund for Adele Sabino has been established at the State Employees’ Credit Union, for anyone who wishes to contribute. Any branch in North Carolina can accept a contribution in person, or by mail send to State Employees’ Credit Union, 8551 Colonnade Center Dr., Raleigh, NC 27615, for deposit to Adele Sabino.

To Christine, Adele, Mr. and Mrs. Sabino, and all of Phil's relatives. As a close family friend of the Kemp family I have heard what a wonderful person, husband, and father Phil was, and I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Words cannot adequately express my heartfelt sympathy. I pray that God will comfort all your hearts and carry you through this time of deep sadness. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time. Love, Diane Rimkis
