Frank Clifford Phillips Jr.

April 27, 1944May 11, 2019

Frank Clifford Phillips Jr. passed away Saturday, May 11, 2019. He is preceded in death by his wife,

Judith Rouse Phillips, and his parents.

If Mr. Phillips was anything, he was a provider and protector. He worked as a sheet metal mechanic for

ACE Fabrication for over 40 years and also served as a paratrooper in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division.

Mr. Phillips loved art and adventure! He was an expert sketch artist and painter, and an excellent wood

carver which he enjoyed with the Delta Wood Carvers. Frank loved adventurous fun, especially on the

water. He surfed, raced Hobie Cats, and spent much of his retirement years out on his own sailboat. When

he wasn’t on the water he was flying his radio controlled airplanes with his friends at Azalea City Model

Aeronautics or being Santa at innumerable venues. Mr. Phillips was a mason with Bowen Lodge 240.

Mr. Phillips’ greatest attribute was his faithfulness to his family. He enjoyed 49 years of marriage to his

wife and sweetheart, Judy, whom he treasured deeply; and lovingly and sacrificially devoted himself to

raising his four children and 7 grandchildren.

Mr. Phillips is survived by his children, Jeff Phillips (Charity), Morgan Woodard (Seth), Lydia Bru

(Robbie), and Miles Phillips; and his 7 grandchildren, Hannah, Nathan, Kara, Paige, Claire, Lyla and Mae.

Visitation will be held Tuesday, May 14, 2019 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Pine Crest Funeral Home in

Mobile, with a funeral service at 2 p.m. on Wednesday at the funeral home. Interment will be in Pine

I grew to dearly love Judy and Frank at Bible study at Michael and Jennifer's home.
Frank was happy, humorous, honest; a pure joy to be around.
He was so talented and creative. His family is blessed, and they are a blessing to their parents. I love you all, and grieve with you. God bless you.
