Michael San Phillip, 55, was an executive with Sandler O'Neil & Partners, carving out a successful career in finance. But what he was most interested in was becoming a grandfather, according to an October 1 obituary in The Times. His oldest daughter was having a child and Phillip, known as "Captain Paddle" in Ridgewood, treasured the title of grandfather, which was expected by December. Phillip, sadly, was never able to realize that dream.
