Funeral Notice: Philip Raymond Gottsacker

Gottsacker, Philip Raymond Our son, brother, uncle and friend left us suddenly on December 24, 2016, victim of a heart attack, at age 60, after celebrating Christmas Eve with his family. Phil was his own man, a life-long bachelor, living in a home he'd worked long and hard to make his own. Gregarious, friendly and affirming, he always had a smile and most certainly a laugh to add levity and good cheer to whatever the occasion. Phil is survived by his parents, Carolyn and Ray, his brothers Greg, Mark (Betty), Mike (Patty Schulz) and Steve; sister Mary Johnson (Barry); nieces, nephews and a grandnephew. Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 31 at Our Lady of Grace Church, 5071 Eden Avenue, Edina, with visitation one hour prior. Private interment. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Heart Association,
