Phil was born in Great Falls on January 25, 1963 to Harvey and Elizabeth LaRocque. He spent his whole life in the Sand Coulee area and graduated from Centerville High School. He worked in several different areas of construction throughout his life. He was very talented, and a perfectionist with his work, but found his passion in drywall.

On December 1, 1983 Phil married his one true love, Kimberly Johnson. The couple was blessed with four daughters and nearly 32 years of marriage. Phil enjoyed spending time with his wife and girls. He liked to relax in his chair and watch Gunsmoke & Bonanza. He also enjoyed drag racing, UFC and wrestling. He spent time fishing and being outdoors, but his greatest joy in life was spending every free moment with his grandchildren.

He is also survived by his spoiled dog, Gracie, and the five cats he lovingly referred to as “The Taliban”.

Those who have preceded him in death include his parents; a sister, Susan LaRocque; and niece, Crystal Martinez.
