RIP Phil,

I had the privilege of working with Phil, a complete professional who quite literally gave 110% in everything that he did. Very sadly taken far too early aged 54. (Ex Flitestar, Air Mauritius, Gulf Air)
(What I know Phil would advocate is regular PSA testing from age 50. Normal reading below 4. Should a reading jump from 1.5 to 2.5 get an MRI)

You live and learn but by the time you've learnt, it's too late to live!
