Jim & Chrissy Phillips

March 10, 2021

Jim met Luke and Hilda in 1960. They moved into neighborhood pulling a Triumph motorcycle TT 500 behind his 1956 Ford Victoria. He knew this must be a cool man and soon became friends. They kept up with one another over the years and when Luke had heart attack in 1988, he sold his alignment business to Jim. He was married to Dolores then and introduced Jim to daughter, Chrissy. They married in 1991 and were very close family members. In 2008, Luke bought Dolores a home 2 doors down from Jim & Chrissy, he said “whatever makes her happy”.
My mother, Dolores, loved Luke very much. He taught her to Dove and Deer hunt, how to fish and go boating. They were always traveling around Texas. They will always be remembered as “Luke & Lola”.
God Bless them, love The Phillips family
