Travelers Rest, SC

Michael Keith Phillips (Mike/Stimey), 49, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, August 26, 2012.

Mike was born March 16, 1963 in Greenville, SC, to Ollie Phillips Chambers and the late Robert Dean Phillips. He is the beloved husband of Mary Gibbs Phillips for 29 years. He was the Owner/Operator of The LawnKeeper Tree Services since 1990. Mike was a member of Reedy River Baptist Church. He loved fishing, spending time with his family and friends. A good day for him would start off with coffee, reading the paper, phone calls to friends in the morning, and getting the kids off to school with a kiss and "I love you Mary" going out the door.

Mike is survived by one daughter: Stephanie Denise Phillips; sons: Jonathan Bradley Phillips, Michael Taylor Phillips; grandson: Mayer Reid Phillips; sister: Georjena Phillips Rowland; brothers: Robert Douglas "Doug" Phillips, James "Jimmy" Dean Phillips, William "Billy" Edward Phillips; step-brothers: Raymond B.
