Our handsome talented son Phil Wang, 39, lost his short but valiant battle with liver complications on August 9, 2019.
Phil was born in Buffalo, Wyo. on Nov. 29, 1979 to Tom and Holly (Beltz) Wang. He attended PCHS in Deer Lodge, and completed a BA degree at the University of Washington. For several years he was a proof-editor for an ad company “The Hacker Group”. Residing in Burien, Wash., Phil was a member of the local chapter of ABATE, lead guitarist in the Enfold Stone band, and game designer for the company Kung Fu Pencil. As a published author Phil loved words and enjoyed sharing his knowledge and skills with others. For pleasure Phil made chain maille and relished assorted roleplaying games. He was an avid cook who enjoyed good food. His greatest passion, however, was his motorcycle--2015 found him in Sturgis, S.D.
Phil will always be remembered for his wonderful smile, generous heart and his passion for writing, music, and books.
