  3. Dear friends, With great sadness, I inform you that our dear friend Phil Patz passed away in a scuba diving accident on May, 25th 2009. This leaves a deep hole in our hearts as we have shared so much with Phil. We are still in denial of the news, because of Phil's constant safety consideration and his larger than life spirit. He was always laughing even in the face of danger. Many people in climbing community knew him, so I am passing the word around in case you have not heard. The funeral is on Tuesday July 7th, 2009 from 5 - 7 pm at Salata - Gurnee Funeral Home 4190 Old Grand Ave, Gurnee, IL - (847) 244-1155 There is a service to follow at 7pm. Thank You Dmitriy Litvak dmit.litvak-gmail
