On Saturday, July 25, 2020, Philip Alfred Contreras, passed away at age 72.

Phillip was born on April 27, 1948 to Domingo and Mikki Contreras. He graduated from Douglas County High School in 1966 and attended Loretto Heights College. Phillip served as part of the Army Security Agency at Ft. Devens, Massachussetts before being deployed to Viet Nam. After being honorably discharged from the service he returned to his roots and lived most of his life in Castle Rock, Colorado.

Phillip loved sports. He played football, basketball and baseball for Douglas County High School and was a member of the school’s wrestling and track team. He was also an avid Denver Broncos fan. One of the items on his bucket list was to own his dream car, a Dodge charger. He realized that dream a couple of years ago when he became the owner of a Broncos Orange 2018 Dodge Charger. He loved driving it around and showing it off. Phillip also had a passion for singing. It made him happy and gave him great pleasure to provide enjoyment to others with his talent. He had a beautiful voice.

By far the greatest passion he had was his family. He and his wife Patty had a combined family of 7 children, 14 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren

Dear Friend and High School Teammate - It saddens us to learn of your passing. We always enjoyed seeing you at high school reunions and reminiscing about our high school days. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t see each other often due to almost our entire lives being separated by significant distance. When we think of you we will remember what a wonderful and kind person you were, what a wonderful family you came from, and what a wonderful teammate you were on our baseball team. The photograph was taken on June 10, 1963. I’m sure you have already made contact with Norm, Denny, Johnny, and JD who are also in the photograph. Bet you are all getting ready for your next baseball game! We will miss you as we know your entire family will. We would appreciate it if you would hold open a couple of spots on the team for a second baseman and a catcher. We know where you are, and if we are blessed, we will join you. Darold and Harold Sloan

Phil, I wanted for so long to reach out and share my life with you and hear the stories of your life too. I did that this week and found the sad news that you had passed. We went through so much together over 50 years ago. Training in Ft. Devens, going together to Viet Nam and spending a year sharing a 2 man tent in Nui Dat. We had a wonderful time in Sydney on R&R, enjoying the beautiful beaches of Australia. We came home together after a long year there and I joined your family in New Hampshire as your Best Man for your wedding. Our lives went in so many different directions after that and I always thought of you and how life was back in your beloved Castle Rock. I deeply regret I never made the effort and I have nothing but wonderful, happy memories of you and will miss you. Rest in peace Phil and we will meet again.

My stepfather was a wonderful man who loved his entire family tremendously. He was especially kind and cared about everyone, including strangers. I've seen him many a time walk up to someone he didn't know and strike up a conversation which always brought a smile to that persons face. We were lucky to have him in our lives. I will miss him dearly. I love you, Phil. I know you will bring smiles to everyone you meet in heaven.

Rest in peace Phill. I haven't seen you in a very long time but I feel we are family.
Remember the bunk house. We spent lots of time playing in the dirt and just doing what kids do. But I do remember when you were showing off on your bike and you crashed big time. You cut up your arm pretty bad. Oh! The stuff that life is made up of and what we remember and what we forget. Go be with your mom Micky, your dad Dom, your sister Linda (she tried to teach me to smoke), and your brothers Mike and Ed. Save a place in Heaven for us that have to wait a little longer to be with those we love. Peace be with your family. Phill ya done good.
