One Year Memorial Tribute - Phil Willmarth

Category: Blog   Posted by: SIMONE MARRON

On the one year anniversary of his passing, Philip Reed Willmarth (affectionately called ‘Big Dad’ by his grandchildren), is remembered for his love of magic. This short and touching tribute video produced by his nephew includes moments from his 2014 memorial service where friends and family honored his life by sharing memories and fittingly, performing magic.  

Phil served as the 2007-08 International President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and for almost thirty years, worked for the organization's monthly journal, The Linking Ring, as Assistant Editor and Executive Editor. He appeared on the cover of the journal three times (1981, 2007, 2014). Phil reminded us all that, "if you believe in magic, maybe your life will change."
