John L. Phillips

 

John L. Phillips, formerly of Longview, TX, went to be with the Lord on June 17th in Lubbock, TX. He was born July 1, 1958, in Dallas, TX to Martha Phillips and Gene Kendrick (Ken) Phillips.

 

John graduated from Longview High School in 1976. He was a proud member of the Longview High School Band and F.F.A. From there he went to Kilgore Jr. College and was a member of the Ranger Band. He received his Associate Degree in Electronics from Tyler Jr. College.

He worked for Steelman Industries and Nabors Drilling. John was a “Jack of all Trades” but loved working in the oil field the most.
