Philip was born in Dickinson on November 16, 1925, the son of Mike and Mary (Hlebichuk) Malkowski. He attended grade school in Blacktail, Evans and Fairfield and attended Belfield High School. Philip joined the US Navy in 1944, serving in WWII on the USS Rockbridge. He served from Okinawa, Japan – Pacific Ocean and was honorably discharged in 1946 as a Seaman First Class.   Philip married Kathryn Petryszak on June 3, 1947 in St. Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Church in Gorham, ND.   Their marriage was blessed with two sons, Roger and Gary.  Farming and ranching was Philip’s greatest love. He found peace in fencing and haying. He loved animals, especially his Hereford cattle and he always had a mousy-grey cat that he adored.  Philip loved fishing, going to the casino, playing solitaire and traveling the country roads of Billings County. He was an active pillar in his community, serving as the Billings County Commissioner for 23 years. During his years of service as commissioner (during the oil boom of the 1980’s) much of the Billings County infrastructure was funded and built, including roads, bridges, fences, fire halls, schools and the courthouse in Medora. He was a founding board member of the Killdeer Hill Top Home of Comfort, also serving as a member of the Medora Grazing Association, Billings County School Board and St. Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic Church where he was also an usher. His presence will be missed.

Philip is survived by his sons, Roger (Kathy) Malkowski of Fairfield and their children, Ryan (John), Kasey (Darnyl) and Qwain, Gary (Patti) Malkowski of Dickinson and their children, Erin (Kevin) Belza, Nathan, Michael (Allison), Kari (Andrew) Gaca; and great-grandchildren, Kadyn (Alexis), Danyka (Jayd), Dawsyn, Ella, Blaise, Eden, Anastasia and Cecelia; and numerous nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by his wife of 76 years, Kathryn; parents, Mike and Mary Malkowski; sister, Helen Clement; brother, David Malkowski; and great-grandchild, Benedict Pio Malkowski.
