Philip H. Carrillo, Jr.

May 1, 1977 – June 6th, 2017

Philip Henry Carrillo, Jr. was born in Truckee, California on May 1st, 1977 and was raised on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. He attended Kings Beach Elementary School, North Tahoe Middle School, North Tahoe High School and the University of Nevada, Reno. Philip died unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 6th, in Manhattan, New York, at the age of 40.

Phil was successful in Real Estate sales in several cities including Seattle, Washington, Pacific Beach and La Jolla, California and most recently in Brooklyn, New York. A passionate performer, Phil enjoyed a long career as a professional musician and recently began performing stand-up comedy in New York. His music endures at Phil Carrillo Entertainment on YouTube.

He loved his family and friends and was a big fan of the Oakland Raiders and Golden State Warriors. Phil enjoyed many other activities, such as Golf, Yoga, Snowboarding, Swimming, Meditation, Travel, Surfing, Reading, Cooking, Bicycling, and of course, his time spent composing and playing music on his guitar.

Phil was ambitious and driven. He was proud of his many accomplishments, most recently the Tri-State Spartan Competition at Mountain Creek Resort, in Vernon, New Jersey. A grueling 14-mile race through mountainous terrain with 30 obstacles, Phil finished 23rd of 493 in the 35 to 39 age group, on the eve of his 40th birthday.

He is survived by his Grandmother, Marion Cappuccio; Mother, Marilyn Stack; Stepfather, Rob Stack; father, Phil Sr.; Stepmother, Susan Carrillo; Sisters: Danika Carrillo Griffin, Shannon Stack; Stepbrothers: Rusty Stokes, Joe Stokes, Mike Stokes; nephews, nieces, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Our Son, Brother, Uncle, Nephew, Grandson and Friend will be sorely missed, but always near, in our hearts and through his music. At Philip’s request, he will be cremated and there will be no services.
