So sorry for your loss of both your son and your husband. I knew and loved Taylor many years ago in 1974-5. I have a cassette tape of his voice still in my keepsakes. He was a delightful person.I'm sure you and his dad were great influences. I am sorry I never had the opportunity to meet you both. Taylor and I drafted apart after I moved back to Toledo,oh after the summer of 74.we had some wonderful times that I cherish to this day. So sorry he had a rough time of it. Sincerely Joanie
You can email me at if you'd like. If not I understand. My condolences to you and your grief filled heart. I wish you peace and love.

I worked under his CFO in the Pasadena office in 1981-82. He was a very kind and generous man and Elizabeth is a fine lady as well. I remember many Friday late afternoons when Mason would either personally tell his office staff that he unlocked the bar at the lunch room in the back of the building or his secretary Linda would. He and Elizabeth genuinely cared for people even those on the lower parts of the totem pole. Those were the good old days! He left a very positive mark on my life.

Dear Liz and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Mason's passing. Your family and Mason affected me profoundly and I think of the wonderful times we spent together often. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and pass my love along to everyone. Mason was one-of-a-kind, and it was sheer joy to have spent such cherished moments in his, and your, company.

All My Love,

Mason and I were roommates at Phillips Academy Andover in 1940-1941. I have a home in Wellington, Florida where his son, Mason Jr.,is in charge of equestrian activities. Mase was fun, athletic, and an all-around great friend. I was hoping that he would be coming to our 70th reunion at Andover this June. I will miss him greatly and send my sincere condolences to his family.

My condolences to Mason Phelps' wife and family. I worked at an art gallery in La Jolla in the early 80's, and met Mason and Elizabeth. I remember being invited to their home for a small gathering after an opening. I was impressed by the art decorating their home, but even more impressed with the couple themselves. They were kind and respectful, and made me feel welcome. I've never forgotten that evening, and have told many people about it over the years. Mason Phelps was an honorable man, and I was lucky to have met him.

Dear Liz and family,
We are among the lucky ones to be a 'friend of Mason' ... and will treasure our memories of both fun times and inspiring talks in your home. It might be a cliche but he was truly "one of a kind" and we will miss him.
Much love,
Susan & Richard

Dearest Liz, all our heartfelt sympathy to you and yours on such a great loss. I told Robert that I will always remember being at the light on Nautilus and Muirlands West watching you cajole Mason to continue his walk when he so clearly was over it! What a great love you both shared.
Fondly, Judith and Robert
