Phil was born in Boston, raised in Dorchester, a graduate of Saint Gregory’s High School and Boston State College. He initially taught school, transitioned to become a successful South Shore contractor and later in his career founded Petrocelli Public insurance Adjusters, which he felt was his true calling. Phil was ambitious, a self starter, industrious. He taught his children the values of hard work, independence and believe in oneself. He enjoyed living close to the ocean, playing golf with his wife Eleanor and friends in NC, and he would toil away for hours in his shop.  He loved being with people, enjoyed a party, a good laugh and the Red Sox. Most of all he loved his time with family, which included his four sons, his extended family with Eleanor M Heavern, his brother Nick, sister Barbara and all his nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchild. He will be dearly missed
