Nov. 29, 1979-Aug. 9, 2019
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, WY on Nov. 29, 1979 to Tom and Holly (Beltz) Wang. He attended PCHS in Deer Lodge, MT 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, WA 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 role playing games. He was an avid cook who enjoyed good food. His greatest passion, however, was his motorcycle -- 2015 found him in Sturgis, SD.
Phil will always be remembered for his wonderful smile, generous heart and his passion for writing, music, and books.
He is survived by his parents Tom and Holly Wang of Deer Lodge, MT, brother Mike of Bremerton, WA, numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and his beloved pet cat, Petra. A celebration of life service will be held on Sept. 21, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at 500 Milwaukee Ave. 1st Presbyterian Church in Deer Lodge with reception to follow. Memorials, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the Rialto Theater or Wm K. Kohrs Memorial Library both in Deer Lodge.
