Subject: Phil Macklin's Passing


It is with great regret that I inform Robert “Phil” Macklin passed away this morning, December 17, 2016 at his residence. Phil had suffered from lung cancer and other breathing related issues, and had returned home to spend his final days with his loved wife Lori and his family.

At Phil’s request, he will not have a funeral.  A memorial will be held at a later date.  Phil is a former Marine, Garden Grove PD officer and Allstate SIU investigator, among other jobs and duties. Phil was also a long-standing member of WSATI Southern Chapter, and a president in 2004.  For those who know Phil well, he was a tenacious friend and had a loving heart.  Phil was proudest of his wife Lori, and their children and grandchildren. 

In the recent years, Phil suffered from a number of physical challenges. He now rests in peace.
