Obituary of Philip Matthew Held

Philip Matthew Held, age 48, born on October 5, 1973 in Fort Dix, New Jersey, went to rest on October 26, 2021.  He resided in Front Royal, Virginia. 


Philip loved spending time with his boys. They enjoyed going fishing together, floating down the Shenandoah River, going to the beach, and riding dirt bikes. He was a master carpenter who took pride in his work and hoped to one day teach the trade to his children.  Phil had a very funny and charismatic personality and will be sadly missed.


He was preceded in death by his mother Patricia Jane Held, grandparents Leo and Ora Fitzgerald, grandparents Kenneth and Betty Held, and best friend Michael Shane “Daffy” Kidwell. 


He is survived by his two sons Levi and Benjamin Held and their mother Stephanie Bain, father Duane Held, three brothers Eric, Jeremy (Kimberly), and Benjamin (Noelle), his niece Christina “CJ”, nephews Cameron, Ethan, and a host of beloved cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.  This includes his close friends Samantha Dixon, Alicia Dunmyer, Travis Sowers, and goddaughter Alyssa Summers.
