Howard Malcolm Phillips Obituary
1943 - 2017 Howard passed away at home in Los Angeles at the age of 74 on Saturday, December 30, following hospice care for a recent illness. He went peacefully in his sleep, and his wife Lorenda and son Jason were with him at the end. Howard was born September 26, 1943 in Manchester, England. His family immigrated to Australia when he was a young boy, and then settled in the United States when he was a teenager. He became a U.S. citizen in 1963 at age 20. Howard graduated from UCLA, and several years later completed a Master's degree at Pepperdine University. Howard worked in human resources management and organizational development for the County of Los Angeles, and retired from the County in 2007 after 41 years of service. Howard enjoyed reading, classical music, food, film and politics, and spending quiet time with his beloved dog Winston. He read over 3,000 books in his lifetime and was a classical music aficionado. Howard touched the lives of many people in his private and working life, and will be remembered and missed by legions of friends and family around the globe. Howard is survived by his wife Lorenda in Los Angeles; his son Jason Phillips of San Francisco; his daughter Rory Phillips Walters and her husband Paul Walters and their children Justin and Sierra of Virginia Beach, Virginia. A memorial service for Howard will be held in the Spring. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, please donate to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (www.themmrf.org).
