ROCKPORT, MA — Philip M. Enos, 64, of Peabody, passed away at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers, with family by his side, on Wednesday, October 23, 2013.
He was born in Salem on April 28, 1949, to his late parents, George and Mary (Ladycheski) Enos.
While growing up in Peabody, Philip was an alter boy during his teenage years. He graduated from Peabody Veteran's Memorial High School and joined the Navy. He was a Veteran of the Vietnam War.
During his working career he was a respiratory therapist with achievements that included Head of Respiratory Therapy at Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester and Hunt Memorial Hospital in Danvers.
Philip was an avid sports fan. He enjoyed watching his sons play baseball and football, rarely missing any of the games they played while growing up. He played goalie as a young man in a men's recreational ice hockey league, often reminiscing sarcastically about his athletic ability.
