In Loving Memory: Phil Lavigna 1963-2010

Phillip Mario Lavigna, my brother, died on April 1, 2010.  Born in Yonkers, New York in 1963, Phil and our family moved to San Diego, California in 1977.  He attended Serra High School and later enlisted in the Army and National Guard.

Phil was an artistic and creative person, who worked in graphic design and eventually became an authority in Linux programming and Ulteo.  He authored "Test Driving Linux" and "Fun with Fink." He even set up a free WiFi network in Little Italy, one of his favorite neighborhoods in San Diego.

I'll always remember his loud laugh and sarcastic sense of humor.  Phil will be missed.

If you are a friend or associate of his, and would like to get in touch, please comment here or email me at debbie{at}soapylove{dot}com.  Thank you.
