    Philip was born near Langdon, ND on April 28, 1933 to Philip J. and Emma Stremick.  The family later moved to a farm south of Walhalla where Philip attended Eastern Star School No. 2 District 99. In 1953, he enlisted in the Army and after his discharge, he returned to Walhalla and married Myrna (Tetrault) on September 22, 1956.  He founded Philip Stremick Construction building many roads and dams throughout North Dakota, including stretches of U.S. Highway 2 and U.S. Highway 83 and Fordville, Larimore, and McDowell Dams.  Philip farmed with his sons and grandsons until retiring in 2020. 

Phillip is survived by his wife of sixty-four years, Myrna, children Steven Stremick of Fargo, ND, Michael (Kathy) Stremick of Walhalla, Shelly (Steve) Fillipi of Aurora, CO, Lori (Rick) Sorensen of Prior Lake, MN, Paul Stremick of Walhalla, Jeffrey (Lisa) Stremick of Fargo, ND, Mark (Mollie) Stremick of Walhalla, Cari (Tod) Worner of Plymouth, MN, grandchildren Christopher (Kristi) and Emily Stremick (Fred Kooser), Austin and Sydney Fillipi, Haley and Kylie Sorensen, Jackson and Collin Stremick, Ethan, Gracie and Marlie Stremick, Annabel and Vivian Worner, great-grandchildren Parker Stremick, Brody Berg and Elena Martinez, brothers Ed (Marlene), Bill (Marlene), Dan (Vera) and sister Anna Werven.

He was preceded in death by his parents, son Matthew, sisters Mildred, Mercedes, Amelda and Evelyn.  

Philip was known by everyone as a man of quiet integrity and profound devotion to his family and his farm. For years he worked tirelessly from dawn to dusk with his sons and grandsons operating a thriving family farm.  Philip was a masterful storyteller whose tales will live on and grow richer through their retelling by his children and grandchildren.  Philip was an avid hunter known for his ability to see the smallest of creatures from the farthest distance. He was a member of St. Boniface Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus and The American Legion and inspired others with a simple faith shown by actions more than words. In his later years, Philip could light up the room simply with his deep blue eyes and kind grin.
