Our family is heartbroken at the loss of our amazing husband, father, and grandfather.

Jerry Dale Phillips went home to be with the Lord Feb 10, 2018. He was preceded in death by his father Conard V Phillips, his mother Lorena Plunkett, brother Conard V Phillips II, and son Jacob Trevor Phillips. He is survived by his wife of 47 years Judith Phillips, daughter Sheryl (Larry) Evans, sons Gerald (Jody) Halstead, Jay Halstead, Conard Phillips III, Ron (Debi) Tawney, Joshua Phillips. He has 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, one brother Joe (Lesley) Phillips and one sister Sue (Jack) Clark. We all take comfort in the fact that we will see his dimpled smile and receive a giant hug at the gates of heaven. He certainly received a triumphant entry into the kingdom and is passionately praising the king, as he did so beautifully in life.

Jerry’s greatest joy in life was time with his wife and precious family. He was fearlessly affectionate and left all his friends and family with no doubt that he loved us. Of all the many gifts and talents he was blessed with none were greater than his huge heart. Jerry thrived on relationship and focused his time on building into people and telling them about Jesus.

We found this verse in his wallet and believe he lived it!

If we love one another, God’s Love is in us and His love is perfected in us. I John 4:12

Jerry definitely had a big heart. He was one of the coolest people I have ever met and had the pleasure of working with. He had an innate ability to recognize when people were going through something and would not hesitate to wrap his arms around you and just ask how you were doing. He always had something uplifting or positive to say. We have shared countless laughs in a short period of time and have spoken about all sorts of things from cars, to family, to racing, and other sports. But he would almost never leave a room without checking on you first and whispering great advice in your ear that made you think about life in a brighter light.

Jerry and I were best of friends. We met and talked about 3 years ago in Orlando. Had lunch and promised to stay in touch.
Talked just prior to our 50th class reunion, he promised to attend but something came up and he couldn’t make it. He was my friend, my buddy. Sorely missed. To the Jet, Love you man.

I knew Jerry through my cousin, Judy Sue Gould. I would visit her in Huntington and dated Jerry whenever I visited. I first saw him at a school event, where he sang "I'll be home for Christmas". He was dressed as if he were in the Navy and his voice and presence drew me to him immediately. I knew Joe also, although briefly.

I saw this obituary quite by accident and viewed the video, which made me quite happy. His wife and family are lovely; no surprise as he was quite a guy. I see that he has a daughter named Sheryl, just the same name and spelling as my name. Perhaps coincidence, but I'd like to think he had fond memories of me too. I'm so pleased he had such a wonderful life and I know you will all miss him terribly. My very best to each member of his family.

Jerry was a great example of kindness with a smile! Always warm and loving when he greeted friends or patrons. We had some great talks very openly where he shared his love for his family, his faith along with how his week was going.

Condolences to the family and his friends.
It was a wonderful service with all speakers talking from the heart about his faith, his love for family and his competing. Jerry will be with everyone in spirit smiling from above. I was blessed to have him in my life during the years he worked with us at Andy Frain. Loved the sax played by Jack Turner at his service for the song "Amazing Grace". Everyone from the singer to piano to sax to speakers made Jerry proud I am sure.

So thankful we were able to make it down to Florida with the family this past fall, the fact that I was able to carry on one more conversation and wrap my arms around that man one more time is something Ill always be thankful for. It was a privilege to have known him, this world was a better place with him in it. Heartfelt condolences to the entire family, Jerry will be missed greatly. Love from the Evans Family.

I've known Jerry for a few years working with him at the Amway Center. He was an awesome man. He always, always greeted you with a huge smile and kind words. Jerry was always genuinely interested in me and my family's well being and many times we had conversations about our children and his grandchildren. You could feel the pride and love he had for his family when he spoke of them. I will miss Jerry dearly as will so many others. My heartfelt condolences to his wonderful family that he loved so, so much.

My Father, Conard was called to heaven the very year that I was born, but I always felt my Fathers love though my Uncle Jerry, Aunt Sue and Uncle Joe. Uncle Jerry always showed me and my children so much love..I will miss his kind words and long talks. I wish that I could have been in heaven to see his reunion with my Father, dear Jacob, and his parents Mame and Poppie. Thank you for always loving me and sharing your faith with me until we are together again..
