Phillip Forte Grave Marker

 

This grave marker which is at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, located at
179 Hackensack Avenue, Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that Phillip Forte served in the United States Coast Guard before and or during World War II and died at the age of 93.

Phillip Forte was not on the Original Wall Unit List, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.

Your grave marker confirms your service for which we are grateful.
