Donald D. PHILLIPS Obituary

PHILLIPS, Donald D.Age 87. December 24, 1925 - May 11, 2013. Local Nashville Jeweler, businessman, veteran, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, passed suddenly Saturday. Survived by his wife of 63 years, Virginia Clair (Ginny) Phillips; sons, Donald Mark Phillips, Gregory Alan Phillips and daughter, Ann Phillips-Cole; grandchildren, Shannie Phillips Hornsby, Justin Tyler Cole, Dylan Alexander Phillips, Teresa McCaskill Helton, Kenneth McCaskill; 9 great-grandchildren, 6 great-great-grandchildren; brothers, Jack Phillips, Elvis Phillips and sister, Barbara Phillips; sister-in-law, Martha Melton and a host of nieces and nephews. Devoted family man who loved to work in his yard, work in his garden and ride his lawnmower, especially ride his lawn mower! If he wasn't in his yard, he was trying to fix something somewhere in the house. In lieu of traditional services, he chose to donate his body to science for research, and with him starting out in the jewelry business as a watchmaker, I guess he wants them to figure out what made him tick. A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, May 17th for family and friends to share memories.
