YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Private services will be held at the Wasko Funeral Home in Campbell for Phillip George Tunanidas, 68, who went home to Our Lord on Monday, July 8, 2019 in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Phillip leaves to cherish his memories, his sisters, Irene Tunanidas of Poland and Dr. Amelia (Rev. Deacon John) Tunanidas Pantelis of St. Petersburg, Florida; nephew, George C. (Dr. Katie) Neuendorf; nieces, Stephanie N. Neuendorf and Cynthia L. (Andrew) Walker and five great- nephews and nieces.
