To Tom & Laurie, Cindy and Mike and all the Rappenecker family. Rita & I extend our condolences on the passing of Phil. What a long and wonderful life he had. We cannot imagine 30 great grandchildren. That back pew at 5 is seeing to many vacancies lately. May Phil's soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed be ushered into the presence of the Lord. Peace and prayers to all.

Knights of Columbus Council 568 on Oct 9, 2019

the Officers of Knights of Columbus Council 568 wish to take this opportunity to express our condolences on the passing of our brother Knight Phil Rappenecker. We all start life in a watery tomb, unknowingly headed for a birth tunnel and to a life of breathing air, and water no more. We hauntingly move toward another tunnel ,a "birth" into a much better "world". As Christians, we know that Christ entered that tunnel through death and came back to His followers to reassure us where that tunnel leads. Be not afraid, I go before you always, come follow me. For I go to prepare a place for you. To Phil's family, may your faith, friends and family bring you peace and comfort at this time.
