Dr. Philip S. Thibault, 74, of Charlotte, went home to be with his Lord, Thursday, June 6, 2019.
Philip was born July 5, 1944 in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts, to Albert and Muriel Thibault. In addition to his father, Philip was also preceded in death by grandsons, Philip Thomas Kokubun and Norman Daniel Kokubun.
Philip gave his life to the Lord to serve his wife, his family, and Christian Education. He served faithfully as a principal in five schools, impacting thousands of lives.
