We had the priveladge of having Mr. Phillips be our children's principal. He was always so kind and supportive. He always had a smile on his face and something positive to say. He was my daughters' hero. I was fortunate to be able to work for him last year. There will never be another educator or leader like him. Thank you so much Mr. Phillips.

I met Dan when we were 9 year olds at Little League try outs and we’ve been friends ever since. From a competitor on the field to a teammate in baseball and soccer, Dan was always encouraging people to give it their all. He always had a passion for whatever challenge was on the plate.
From growing up in Berkshire County to moving out West, Dan was always fun to be with. When Dan graduated UNLV and started to pursue his career teaching he really started to hone his people skills. He had both passion and compassion and displayed them daily to all who were associated with him. I’ve always been so proud of Dan and his accomplishments, he did them the old fashion way – hard work and dedication to master his skills.
To Sue and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. To Dan, it was a great ride and we will meet again upstairs. I love ya brother.

On behalf of the Jones family we extend our sincerest condolences to the entire Phillips family. We grew up on the corner of Madison and Dewey Ave (the Dewey Bradford corridor) and spent much of our childhood years hanging with Danny. I last spoke with Danny a little while back when he was visiting family in the Pittsfield area. Danny stopped by to see my mom after my dads passing. We had a great conversation, shared a few laughs and tears when reliving old memories. Danny was a good friend of my brother Tim, who had passed a few years earlier. Danny was as genuine as the day is long. He was fiercely loyal to his work, his friends and especially his family. I was deeply saddened to hear of Danny’s passing, he will be missed...R.I.P. buddy

Dear Susan,
We are so sorry for your loss of Dan. He was such an inspiration to our family as a coach, teammate, and friend. My boys and I will always be grateful we knew him, coached with him, and had fun and learned from him. We loved him like family and will hold those little league days in our hearts forever.

I’m incredibly sad at Dans passing. He always went out of his way each morning welcoming my son Matthew at the gate and checking in with him. Now my sweet Matthew gets to meet him at the pearly gates and welcome him. Sue it was a pleasure working with you and I am incredibly sorry for your loss.

The Phillips family lived across the street from me. My family watched Danny grow up. He looked so much like my best friend, and his sister Laura. My whole family want you to know we are thinking of you all. My heart aches for Laura and his children.

I can still see him playing in the yard with my younger sister, Janet and her best friend Laura. Those were such happy, carefree times. I will cherish those memories of Danny.
Love to you all,
Kathy & Ed Maloney

We had the pleasure of coaching Little League with Dan for five years. Dan was one of the most supportive, kind, and encouraging people we have ever known. It was rare to see him without a smile on his face or hear him without a positive word on his lips. He took time with each child on the team, getting down on their level and looking them in the eye with patient instruction and leadership. His love for Sue, Stefani, Abby, and Ben was the foundation of his life. Our hearts are broken with the loss of our friend, and we are covering his precious family with love and prayer.

Principal Phillips was one of those administrators you never forget. A positive light and a laugh that could fill a room. You made that lasting impression on every student you came into contact with, an impression most educators chase to reach daily. You were always kind and always fair. I will always remember you from my four years at Palo as I'm sure many of the students will. I couldn't have asked for a better administrator and supporter. Thank you for everything Principal Phillips.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Phillips family during this sad time. May God give you peace to know he is with his true father.

Our family had so much respect for Mr. Phillips and we pray for the comfort of his family and friends who will, undoubtedly, miss him every day.
Our son, Ethan, got to spend time with him in FL when he was in the Battle of the Books and came back talking about how much FUN Mr. Phillips was on that trip.
It was clear to us that he was a person who cared for others and we pray that he knew - and that his surviving family members know - how very much he was loved and respected.
