He graduated from Jordan Vocational High School, and he received his Bachelor of Science from Columbus State University and his Masters from the Navy War College. Commander McPhail served his country proudly and retired after 28 years of service with the Navy.

Robert was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus and The Columbus Country Club. He enjoyed playing golf, and loved living on Lake Hardin where he fed the local ducks and geese. He sat in his favorite chair, listened to Rush Limbaugh and supported President Trump. He was a gentle giant who was kind to animals.

He was a great Uncle to me and my little sister and older brother. I'm going to miss him. My prayers are with his wife and son and extended family. I'm sorry I can't make it but I'm there in spirit.
