Dixie and family. I was so sorry to hear of Phil's passing. My prayers are with you. May you find peace and comfort as you rest assuredly in God's promises. As Scripture says, "We do not mourn as those who have no hope." Cherish the many happy memories of your 57 years together. God be with you. Sharon De Roach

I'm praying that your family be comforted through this sorrowful time. God knows our pain and provides us with comfort. (Psalms 9:9&10;). He promises us that we will our loved ones again. John 5:28 tells us that he will remember our loved ones and give them life again. Revelations 21:4 provides us with his promise that soon death will not exist. Imagine never having to be separated from our loved one again! May this bring you comfort. NJones

So sorry to hear this. Mr. Voskuil was my 5th grade teacher in the 1970s. I still remember his smiling face. He was truly one of the best teachers I had. He was in the job for all of the right reasons. Making a difference in children's lives.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Phil Voskuil and his wife, Dixie were fixtures at Edison School for the many years our 4 girls were students there. They both accomplished what we hope all teachers will by giving our kids a solid foundation for success in life. We offer hugs all around for his grieving family.

I had Mr. Voskuil as a teacher 28 years ago. He is my all time favorite teacher. He made the class fun and all of his lessons were memorable!! I am so thankful he chose to make a difference in kids life like mine. May he Rest In Peace.

When we moved to Appleton in '89, Mr. Voskuil was son's sixth grade teacher; a year later, he was our daughter's. He really made a difference for them with his kind and interesting ways; very thankful! Imagine our delight when my husband's rehab weeks this past April were spent across the hall and down a room from Mr. Voskuil! We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to thank him and have several meaningful visits with this wonderful Christian man! Even at the rehab, Mr. Voskuil was quite a storyteller, leader and friend. My husband said you had to get there early to find a seat at his lunch or dinner table ... People were just drawn to him; he always had a lot to offer. As someone once said: great teachers are legends ... God bless you!

We are so very sorry to learn of Phil's passing. We kept praying that this surgery would be successful and that he would be able to get around good again and sit by his pond. But it wasn't meant to be, God doesn't make mistakes. We will miss him always. He was a good friend and neighbor for over 50 years.
