Philip Stillman 

Philip M. Stillman, one month shy of his 101st birthday, passed away on Jan. 19, 2022. Born in NYC, he was a military veteran of World War 2 and Korea who retired at the rank of major after 23 years of service. Phil also served for many years as an executive director of the Jewish Community Centers across the country. He then went on to work for HUD in Washington, D.C. In retirement, he moved across the country and became a resident of Elk Grove where he helped found the “Magicians Circle” and was active with his wife, Miriam, at the Senior Center. Phil was a devoted family man, friend, magician, and fencing enthusiast. He is survived by his wife, Miriam of 73-plus years, their four children (and their spouses), nine grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. There will be a celebration of Phil's life and a "Broken Wand" ceremony, announced for a future date.
