Elizabeth native Philip Deckert died Jan. 10, in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He was 34 years old.

Philip was a graduate of Kean University (Class of 2010) with a degree in criminal justice. He moved to Florida in 2014, and worked as a valet for the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, his obituary says.

He enjoyed both playing and watching basketball, along with other sports, and played for the St. Hedwig Hawks in 1994-95 -- when they won the Elizabeth City Championship.

Philip is survived by his mother, Mary Ann Socha Deckert; father, Henry Deckert; sister, Veronica A. Deckert; along with friends, colleagues and dozens of loved ones.

Burial was in the family plot of Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Linden.
