0 February 18th, 2009 Phil Carey’s memorial service attended by “OLTL” castmates!

Carolyn Hinsey reported that Bob Woods (Bo), Erika Slezak (Viki), and Patricia Elliot (Renee) and ”OLTL” Executive Producer Frank Valentini gave moving tributes, along with telling a few funny stories about “Philly.” Carey’s son Sean eloquently eulogized his dad, and Mark Derwin (Ex-Ben) flew in from L.A. to do a reading. “He was my Pa,” Derwin explained. The service ended with a recording of “Happy Trails,” which Woods pronounced as “fitting.” A reception was held afterwards at a local restaurant, where a video was shown of Carey’s early days as a Buchanan. That was followed by a series of the riotous commercials Carey made for Granny Goose potato chips in the 1960s — and many toasts to the legendary actor.
