Oh Bill...What a shock to hear you had passed on! Couldn't believe it when Jack told me. It had only been a few days since I last saw you and you wished me a good day as I left the gym. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing you very long but the short time left an indelible memory. You and Jack were the first ones to speak to me when I started at the gym. You always greeted me warmly and gave an occasional fist bump, with a "Good to to see ya". Your friendly, humorous spirit is certainly missed at the gym. May the loved ones and friends you've left behind find grace to bear this, as you live on in hearts and minds.
No more rides on the bike, nor weights at the "wuss station" ... Rest now in perfect peace.

When I remember bygone days,
I think how evening follows morn,
and so many I love are not yet dead,
and so many I'll love are not yet born.

My memories of my only sibling live on......... I am at a loss of words for Bill's passing, I feel alone, wandering through my many wonderful experiences shared with my family.

When we immigrated to the U.S. (me 7, Bill 12) each of us was in awe of the courage that it must of taken for our parents to leave their families behind. What it did was to draw us closer to our parents and we created new and exciting lives full of thanks and love.

I am thankful for those times, remembered now as memories that will never tarnish. I am grateful for having my big brother (known as "Biddy Fisups, ) in my heart forever. Love, and miss you. Bro T

Hey Bill,
I only had the honor to know you for a short time which is my loss. You always made me feel welcomed and feel as though I was a part of your circle of friends. And how you talked about going to get doughnuts and coffee after your workout! I will miss your jokes, sense of humor and gentleness you showed towards everyone. Thank you for gracing all of us and for those who are left behind, we take comfort and find peace because you blessed our world with your special light!

From all the postings, there is certainly a common thread in your personality Bill, and what wonderful traits to be remembered for. You always had a good story to relay, a joke to tell, and a nice friendly greeting for everyone. I especially enjoyed your stories about playing sports, the lines you crossed, but never getting into any real trouble. I’ve only had the privilege of knowing you for the past year and a half, and I’m so thankful I did. I will miss you sitting on the bench, conversing, no matter how brief, and especially your “charming” sense of humor and lighthearted style. Thanks for the laughs.

Whether he was proudly sharing stories about his family or talking about his early morning workouts, rugby tales, football, his latest woodworking project, high school & college memories, more rugby tales, or recipes, Bill's accounts of his life were fascinating and would always hold our interest.
A good and kind man, this X Rugger and dear friend will live on in our hearts. We miss you Bill.
We extend our caring thoughts and prayers to the Phillips family for your sudden loss.

Mr. Bill......sure do miss you at the gym. Your witty stories and stories of yester years were priceless. You had so many experiences to tell. Enjoyed our glasses of wine conversing about your newest painting project or a new woodworking piece. You were very talented. Thanks for all the good times. Miss you

Bill was always the first to gym. The one morning no was there to open the doors, his car was there he wasn't in it. I walk to the door and looked in there was Bill. He open the door from the inside, Bill how did you get in? Sworn to secrecy. Can't tell you.
Rest in peace my friend .

"Did I tell you the one about......?" Those were usually the first words out of his mouth, upon seeing him at the gym every morning. Him holding Command Center attention on his favorite stationary bike, all the while issuing commentary on the TV talking heads. Bill always had a story, whether truthful, fictional or major embellishment of fading memories, they were always entertaining. We're gonna miss you Bill, already do. RIP my friend.

A wonderful friend who always had a great story and joke to cheer everyone. I know you are in heaven playing rugby with your buddies. RIP Capt Phillips and try to stay out of the penalty box!
