Phillip and Jaqueline were later blessed with his only sister Phyllis (Baby) Lee Hampton-Cantrell. Phillip also had a beloved brother Howard Stevenson aka Little Man. For his early education, Phillip attended Indianapolis Public Schools 29 and 56 and later attended Arsenal Technical High School. Later in life he earned his General Education Diploma. Through childhood and early adulthood, he was a member of First Free Will Baptist Church alongside much of his family and where his grandmother was Mother of the church. 

Phillip began work as a machinist at Allison Gas Turbine at the age of 18 in 1977 and retired from the company after 20 years of dedicated service in 1997. Over the years he acquired many skills and worked in many professions such as carpentry, roofing, plumbing, landscaping, culinary arts, bridge construction and so much more. He was truly a jack of all trades and wouldn’t     hesitate to share anything he knew with anyone who wanted to learn. He was a true hustler and could sell water to a whale. He had a love for life with particular passions for making money and loving women.

Phillip was truly a momma’s boy in every sense of the word and he loved his mother more than life itself. Phillip was always the life the party and he was truly a people person. Most times you heard him before you saw him. No one ever accused him of being perfect, but his heart was made of pure gold. He was born to be a father and grandfather. He was an amazing father to his children. He was also a father to countless children that he didn’t have a hand in creating,   nevertheless, he loved, nurtured and guided them as if they were his own.
