Jimmy Phillips Memorial September 14th

Ted, this is Bonnie Phillips, with update info on Jimmy Phillips, class of 62.

Jimmy (Goob) Phillips died on New Years eve, 2019, after a long battle with many health issues. He died peacefully at his Collinsville home, with wife Bonnie and daughter Angela holding his hands. Jim had lived his most recent years, almost 15 of them, as a Colorado resident, much of that in Lake City, Colorado, and that is where he wished to be buried. Due to weather conditions, interment of his ashes has been delayed multiple times, as Lake City had a horrific winter with over 200 feet avalanches and later serious threats of flood due to snow melt.

The family decided to wait until fall to have his memorial; it was his favorite time of year. So the memorial will be held at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall in Lake City Colorado, on Saturday, September 14, 2019, at 10:00 a.m., with interment following at the Hinsdale 100F cemetery. Lake City is very beautiful at that time of the year, and any classmates or friends who would like to attend are welcome. Travelers should be aware that lodging may not be plentiful due to fall-color enthusiasts, so advance reservations would be wise.

Cards are also welcome, address is Bonnie Phillips, PO Box 233, Lake City, CO, 81235. Anyone wishing to donate flowers may wish to order live plants that are “deer un-friendly,” as the family is planting a memorial garden. Gunnison, CO would be the nearest florists.
