Born in Plainfield and raised in Linden, Phil graduated Linden High School in 1980. He was most recently employed by Nippon Express, a global logistics services company, leading several aspects of its distribution center in Edison, NJ. He previously worked as a supervisor at Ingersoll Rand and Star Micronics.
Phil was fond of outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, and running. He also enjoyed working around the home, gardening, and wood-working—although spending time with family and making people laugh were his favorite past-times.

He is survived by his wife Gloria Arminio Berlinski, his children Amanda, Jeremy, and Vincent; his father William Berlinski; sister Ruth Wrzosek and her children Rebecca Coleman (Jake), Rachel Rogers (Adam), James, Robert, Jacob, Andrew, and Regina; his sister Rose Marie Juba (Frank) and their children Kayleigh and Frank; and his brother William Berlinski and family. Phil is also survived by sister-in-law Barbara La Mort (Dennis), brother-in-law David Arminio (Kathy), sister-in-law Dianne Schmitt (John), brother-in-law Tom Arminio (Jan), and brother-in-law John Arminio (Kim), and a multitude of nieces, nephews and cousins.
