Just curious if any travellers have gone to Lahaina and seen the preacher who has literally been an artifact there for 2 decades or more.

I am going to Maui in October and I know he's still there. I am looking to invite him for coffee. I'm just curious if anyone has spoken to him.

Here's a picture of the guy:

No, haven't seen him.

There used to be a guy who was a kind of main greeter in Laguna Beach, decades ago. You kinda hadda wave back. Maybe he left for the islands.
Kidding, these were definitely different people.



Sometimes semi iconic folk are interesting. I lived in Venice, CA for a zillion years and we had Harry Perry who skated on the boardwalk, played guitar, sang reasonably well, if I remember right on his ever singing, usually he didn't sing; I think he was a sikkh, however you spell that. In fact, dadgummit, he probably was the one who sat in front of me at the Fox Venice movie theater...

I suspect he is an interesting person; people who I knew who had talked with him said he is sharp. He lived, last I heard, only a couple of blocks from us.

Damn, I miss Venice.


Aha, here's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Perry - he moved to Venice the same year I did.

My first studio was a half block from where that 'riffling' is going on...

auntydakine,

my thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the Prais ohana. Brother Phillip was an amazing individual and he will be missed. i am writing a story for Maui Time Weekly on Brother Phillip and am hoping that you can contact me. I want the story to be an accurate description of Brother Phillip. I spent Friday afternoon talking with people in Lahaina (Brother Francis, Sista Tala etc.)

I know this is a hard time for you, but if there is any family member that would like to comment, please contact me as soon as possible. My deadline for the story is Tuesday afternoon.

Thank you very much. Take care.

@starrbegley,
Wow....I actually have a trip booked for October of this year and I was actually looking forward to formally introducing myself to Philip.
I first saw him many years ago and I have never forgotten about him.

My respects go out to his family and friends.
