Obituary for Gene L. Phillips

Gene L. Phillips, of Fenton, went to be with the Lord, surrounded by his family at home on May 22, 2020 at the age of 83.

Our dad was a great provider. We believe that was one of his goals in life, to keep his family happy and comfortable. He retired from General Motors at 55, while also becoming a successful home designer and builder with the help of our mom, he was able to continue consulting for the auto industry. He served in the Air Force from September 1954 - September 1957.

At every occasion he had his handy camera to capture moments that we still cherish today. He will be missed by many.

Preceded in death by his wife of nearly 60 years, Rosemary A. Phillips (dec. 2017) Gene is survived by his daughters, Kathy Milhizer and Donna Phillips; his son David (Kim) Phillips; grandchildren, Steven Houck, Scott (Shelby) Ruggles, Angela (Thomas) Norris, Courtney (Ted) Palen, Lauren and David (Chelsea) Phillips II; great-grandchildren, Logan, Lainey, Brooks, and Isaac; sisters-in-law, Marian (the late Wilfred) Linden, Joan Linden, and the late brother-in-law, Helmut Linden. He was preceded in death by his 3 brothers.
