He loved to cook and would often feed the homeless and help others in need.  “Buzzy” would spend time with his friends djaying, sharing his dream of creating and producing music.He was a genuine friend to all. One of his favorite quotes: “No man is an island who has friends.” He was hired to work at Rio Counseling Center by Able Fernandez, where he helped people work through their traumas. 

Phillip is survived by his children Marisa Rose Fernandez and Alyssa Fernandez, his mother, Charlene Fernandez, sister Margarita Medrano, brother Cruz Fernandez and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins. He will be greatly missed by ALL.
