Philip was buried 6 Jan 1906. Dr. J. W. Pratt, M.D. (also a family friend) states on Philip's Death Certificate: "Died at 1:45 PM from Acute Indigestion. Immediate cause of death was paralysis of heart. Death, very suddenly." Dr. Pratt last saw Philip alive 31 Dec 1905. He had been treating him since 1899.

Philip was the son of a Farmer and Saw Miller, George Heber Handwork I and Barbara DeHaven; both born in Pennsylvania. He had one brother, James Heber Handwork (1847-1916) who was a Confectioner (owned a candy factory).

Philip married Caroline Kendig in 1868, and they had the following five children:

George Heber Handwork II (18691934)
Clara Kendig Handwork Taylor (18701953)
Sarah Frances "Sara/Sadie" Handwork (18721950)
John Kendig "Jack" HANDWORK (18801921)
Dr Andrew Jackson Williams "Bill" Handwork Sr MD (18841957).

Philip began his career as a Flour Miller at about age 19 or 20. He was a partner in the Tatnall and Handwork Rolling Mill in Parkesburg, Chester County, PA. He, his wife and two daughters moved to Huntingdon, PA; then to Coatesville, Chester County, PA in August of 1899, where he began a milling business and two of his sons, George and John took over with the Handwork Brothers Flour and Feed merchant business.
