Phil DiRe - Obit

I had the honor and privilege of knowing this man for the past 17 years as not only his employee at Successware, but as a friend, too.
He was my boss, my mentor and one of the greatest people I have ever known.
In the beginning I thought it was cool that he liked Jazz music, until I learned who he was outside the office and was completely blown away! LOL!!
Watching him perform live was such a treat. He loved to play and it showed in each and every performance he did.
Our company Christmas parties would typically include him playing for us with a small group of his music friends from all over.
He was a truly remarkable person and an overall great human being.
He left an indelible mark on my life and I will be forever grateful for his kindness, his generosity and his friendship.
Thank you for everything, Phil. I will miss you. RIP.
