Philip M. DiBecelle, age 77, of Shelton, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 28, 2019 at Bridgeport Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Eileen Robidoux DiBecelle. Born in Bridgeport on September 12, 1941, he was a son of the late Michael and Catherine Sarni DiBecelle. Mr. DiBecelle was an electrician by trade, running his own company for a time and also as a longtime member of the IBEW Local Union. Phil was a true jack of all trades and could fix almost anything.

He will be missed greatly as a longtime, loyal employee of Abriola Parkview Funeral Home, where he spent 18 years as a parking lot attendant, bearing the extreme elements of heat, cold and rain. A loving and faithful husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, he will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
