Phillip Zook died at home in Sparks, NV, with his family at his side. As an architect and accessibility expert, Phill touched the lives of people across the country. Although he spent the last several years living and working in Nevada, Phill had an affinity for the East Coast, with particular fondness for his many happy years in Boston, MA, Carrboro, NC, and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Phill is survived by his wife, Kate; his daughters Hallie (Austin) Ribelin, Ridley Zook, Meghan (Alex) Reed, and Jessica Copeland; two grandsons; mother Gerry Zook; and siblings Martin Zook, Martha Spinhirne, and Byron Zook and their families. The family will celebrate Phill's life by planting his garden in the spring.
