Phillip Michael Hare Obituary
Phillip Michael Hare, 50, of Ramona, CA, passed away July 17, 2012. Phil was born October 8, 1961, to Frederick and Patricia (Gillespie) Hare in Santa Monica, CA. He spent most of his childhood in Ventura County and graduated from Royal High School in Simi Valley in 1979.
He proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force as an F-4 Crew Chief. Following his Air Force service, Phil made a living as an airplane mechanic, starting on rotary engines (crop dusters) and moved to fire bombers with CDF (Cal Fire). He spent more than 20 years with Dym Corp, the contractor to Cal Fire, and retired out of the Ramona Air Base.
Phil is preceded in death by his mother, Patricia Reitz. He is survived by his father, Fred, and "2nd mom" Nancy of Roseville, CA; brothers, Chris (Tina) of Moorpark, CA, and Danny of Sacramento, CA; sisters, Katie Thompson of Loomis, CA, and Debbie (Evan) Faddis of Lincoln, CA; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Phil was very talented and truly enjoyed his life, especially his career at the Ramona Air Base. Besides flying and working on his restored Cessna, he enjoyed traveling the world diving and taking underwater photographs. His wit and humor will be sorely missed by his immediate family and his Cal Fire family.
The family wishes to extend special thanks to Phil's close friends, Terri Callingwood and Doddi, as well as Pomerado Hospital and Elizabeth Hospice for their special care.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Phil's memory to Elizabeth Hospice, 150 W. Crest St., Escondido, CA 92025.
