Phillip Edward Sauer, son of Edward Karl Sauer Jr. and Audrey Elizabeth Latter passed away unexpectedly on July 26, 2020.\r\n \r\nPhillip was born in Fort Riley, KS in 1989. He grew up predominantly in Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania and Treasure Island, Florida, spending his later years between the Tampa Bay area, Scranton, Pennsylvania and Newport, Maine. Phillip enjoyed fishing, kayaking, bowling, playing pool, and spending time outdoors. Phillip was known for his love of animals and outgoing nature. His charismatic personality made it easy for him to make friends wherever he lived. He is best known for his love for his two beautiful children, Silas, age 9, and Stella, age 3, who were the most important part of his life.\r\n \r\nIn addition to his son and daughter, Phillip is survived by his sisters Debra Bailey and Mindy Macaluso, mother Audrey Latter and step-father Mark Latter, father Edward Sauer Jr. and step-mother Shari Sauer, and grandparents Hank and Ruth Anne Kramer. \r\n\r\nPhillip was a sweet, funny, compassionate person with a huge heart and great sense of humor. His legacy will live on through his children, whom he loved dearly, and in the hearts of all who knew him. He will be remembered by family and those closest to him for his courage in his battle with addiction. His family takes comfort in knowing that Phillip is surrounded by light, happiness and freedom from the struggles that haunted him. His family would have given anything for him to experience that freedom in this lifetime, but know that he is finally at peace and among his family members that preceded him in death, his grandparents Edward and June Sauer and great-grandparents Ethel and Daniel Falloon. \r\n\r\nHis family are planning private family celebrations of Phillip’s life in Pennsylvania and Treasure Island due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
