Phillips, Kenneth Ray - Noonday

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 25, at 10:30 am at the Noonday Baptist Church, Texas Highway 155 South, Tyler. Ken was born in Iola on Nov. 21, 1939, to Leach and Estalena Adams Phillips. He grew up in a rural area near Iola and Bedias in Central Texas. After attending Palestine High School, he then served in the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. When he returned, he built a career in heating and air conditioning, and automobile repair and body work. Over the years, he worked for two school districts, providing maintenance for their facilities.

He would give you the boots off of his feet if you needed it, and was always helping others in various capacities. Over the years he controlled gophers, helped people find a home, brokered vehicle purchases, helped with home repairs and freely shared his opinion and advice (whether needed or not). He was beloved by all who knew him. He was preceded in death by his parents, younger brother, Carl, and younger sister, Marlene.
