Phillip L. McNickle, III

February 2, 1981 — June 23, 2024


Boardman, Ohio - Phillip L. McNickle, III, formerly of Canton, Ohio, passed away on June 23, 2024. 

Phillip, affectionately known as "Phil," was born February 2, 1981 in Canton, Ohio, the son of Phillip L. McNickle, Jr. and Lori Cook McNickle.

Raised in Canton, Phil attended McKinley High School and worked as a steel worker in several mills throughout his career. In 2017, Phil relocated to Boardman, Ohio, where he became an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous. Through Phil's journey with the program, he created many meaningful friendships and his willingness to assist those in need knew no bounds. 

Beyond his work and dedication to recovery, Phil found joy in simple pleasures - from sweating it out at the gym to cheering on his beloved Cleveland sports teams and boating. His greatest happiness came from quality time spent with family and friends including loved ones Josh, Jaclyn, Melissa, Hannah, and Anthony. Phil will be lovingly remembered for his wonderful sense of humor, big smile, and radiant positivity. 

Phil leaves to carry on his memory, his mother, Lori McNickle of Canton; children, Delaney McNickle of Canton, Phillip L. McNickle, IV of Lewis Center, OH, and Avery McNickle of Lewis Center, OH; his paternal grandmother, Betty McNickle of Canton; and extended family.

Phil was preceded in death by his father, Phillip L. McNickle, Jr.; paternal grandfather, Phillip "Larry" McNickle, Sr.; and maternal grandparents, Orley and Norma Cook.

A celebration of life service will be announced at a forthcoming date.
