  1. Our lives will never be the same without you in it 💙 thank you for being a best friend a protector and truly beautiful soul.
    I will miss you everyday ❤️
    My love to val Pete and Kirsty, I hope you can take some comfort in the amount of love shown for your boy 💚 he was one in a million, my love as always Leah

  2. Philboy, you will always be in our hearts and live on in those that love you, those that had the (always hilarious) pleasure to know you, those of us that have countless memories and stories involving you to recite!
    Can’t believe I’ll never hear that laugh on a random late night call, see those twinkly eyes and infectious smile, or be wrapped in a big Philboy cuddle again.
    Thank you for teaching my boys (some rather questionable things) from their Uncle Phil, for always making us laugh, and for being you!

    Miss you so much already!
    Love you long time!

  3. Phil, I can’t believe this happened. I wish I could hear your voice and your laugh again. I have so many things I wish I said on our Friday video call. You were the very best of everything. The best and sometimes worst advice giver 😂 the very best man, son, brother and friend. You were always there for me, through the good and bad. I will cherish every memory and everything about you forever. You were incredible Townsend…funny, loving, sensitive, super affectionate and an all rounder philboy/Phoy.
    I will miss and love you for the rest of my life and I can’t wait for the day I see you again. My everything goes to Val, Pete and Kirsty- Lou during this terrible and sad time. Condolences can never be enough but;
    I will love you all forever, too.

  4. Whenever I hear the word Lulworth the 1st thing I’ll think of is a bleached blonde, but not one with awesome tits….oh no it’ll be one with a ruggedly beautiful face and a laugh like no other! Can’t believe you’re gone my old crazy mate, we had loads of fishing, drinking and talking BS to do!
    Glad I got to know you properly, really thank the heavens that I got to spend some quality time with you and learn what it’s like to know a genuinely great guy with no ulterior motives! If more people in this world were like you, the world would be a richer place. One of the best has gone, but we were all so lucky to have had you in our lives. Keep a watch over the family mate

  5. I love you so much Philly, with every ounce of my being. I still can’t believe you’re gone and I’m having to write this. Life will never be the same again. You were the bestest friend a girl could have and I will cherish all our beautiful memories forever. You gave out so much love with that big old heart of yours and were loved back by so many. You truly were a legend who will never be forgotten. My love to Val, Pete and Kirsty. Love you all.
    Until we meet again sweetheart xxxxx

  6. Philly

    Where do I start ….. first of all I want to say thank you for being a part of mine and my families life , you truly were a gentle caring giant who I had the pleasure of meeting when you came into Lucy’s life .

    You were always so kind and caring even when you turned up at mum’s house drunk after your Christmas work do in the shoe box singing Qua Sera Sera and declaring your love for me and mum 😂 that’s saying will always remind me of you , oh and you being 2 pigments off an albino is another .

    Even after all these years when you were home you would always give a massive cuddle and always ask after us all and have always been a huge support to Lucy during your relationship and after , just shows the true gent you are ❤️

    I’m forever grateful too of met you and you will always hold a piece to all our hearts .

    I hope our paths cross again in another life time , give Romey bear a big kiss from us and give barbs hell , but then again you always could get her round your little fingers 🥰

    Love to you always Philly

  8. Dear Phil,
    Your passing has extremely impacted us, your Bruneian gangs!

    You for me, is one of the person really i can talk to blending your way and we connect so well.

    You are such a kind person, a cool guy, hilarious, that whenever we get the opportunity to meet, there was never a dull moment, even for just 5 minutes. You would insist me to stay longer even when I said I only had 10minutes but in the end I made it up to 20mins because we just can talk and make each other laugh happily non stop!

    Thank you for everything, your friendship especially. You are dearly miss by your Bruneian tribes everyday! RIP Phil… you will never be forgotten. 💙
