Thomas Herbert Phillips

 

Thomas “Herbert” Phillips, 93, of Albany, GA passed away November 21st, 2023 peacefully at his home.  The family will have a private memorial at Floral Memory Gardens.

Born on July 27th, 1930, to the late Albert and Idaline Phillips of Baker County, GA, Herbert served 5 years enlisted in the US Navy.  He then went on to work at Miller Coors where he spent 15 years before retiring.  Family held a special place in Herbert’s heart.  He enjoyed being with his children and grandchildren dearly.  In his earlier years before his illness, Herbert appreciated all things outdoors.  His garden was something he loved working in with his wife, Evelyn.  When they weren’t home, you would assume they were in Eastpoint, FL fishing.  Aside from the salt water, another one of Herbert’s treasures were his horses.  There was never a dull moment for the grandchildren spending weekends in the country with their “Pa”.  

Herbert was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers, his youngest son, Albert Keith Phillps.  He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Evelyn Preston Phillips, his eldest son, William “Bill” Franklin Phillips, his two daughters, Sheila Diane Poitevint and Karen Violet Phillips.  Grandchildren include Misty Dawn Holman, Thomas “TJ” Jackson, Carrie Preston Malone, Kimberly Prieto, Chelsie Neri, Nicole Laska, Abert “AJ” Phillips, and great grandchild, Bailey Malone. 

In lieu of flowers, those desiring may make donations to the charity of their choice.
