Phillip Devor Obituary
Phillip Campbell Farist Devor died unexpectedly in Norwood, MA on November 9, 2017 at the age of 35. He was born at the Mt. Auburn Hospital, Cambridge MA. Phil is survived by his brothers Chris Devor of Boston MA & John Devor of Baltimore MD; his sisters Francie Foster & Chris Foster of Needham MA; his mom Barbie Butler Foster and his step-dad Reg Foster of Needham MA; his dad Richard Devor & & step-mom Jennifer Devor of Charlottesville, VA; and his grandmother Ann Butler of Mattapoisett, his grandfather and step grandmother Rev. Richard Devor & Rev. Nancy Devor of Boston MA. For high school, Phil attended the the Potomac School in McLean, VA from which he graduated in June, 2001 with high honors. He was an avid computer programmer, one of the brightest stars of the Potomac Schools math and science departments, as well as a great football team captain for the Potomac Panthers. In the fall of 2001, Phil began his college studies at MIT in Cambridge, MA. He was able to follow his love of neurobiology and computers for two years. He grappled successfully with the very demanding MIT academic program and community, before finally succumbing to the illness which would dominate the last third of his life. Weve lost our gentle giant, with his big hugs and joie de vivre. His integrity, huge heart and abundant love will always be remembered. Please honor Phils life by making a contribution in his name to Mclean Hospital (www.mcleanhospital.org) or the National Alliance on Mental Illness (www.namimass. org).
