“Fireman Phil” Phantastic Phil

“Fireman Phil” is one of the Phantastic Phil statues that can be found around town in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. According to the Punxsutawney Chamber of Commerce this Phil “is a┬átribute to the late firefighter Leroy ‘Cookie’ Depp. ” Additionally on the statue there are patches from three local fire companies as well as the number worn by Leroy. Leroy’s family sponsored the creation of the statue, not just as a memorial to Depp, but “as a tribute to┬ávolunteer firefighters everywhere.”
