It wasn't until meeting Phillip that he briefly lived out his life as an out gay man.

With the help of a kind stranger on Facebook by the name of Tina Wood, he was able to track down Phillip Allen Jones — who died just a few years ago. His longtime partner, Jones' niece told him, according to a Facebook post, died before him.
