Not sure what to say?

When I joined Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Florida Southern, Dale was appointed my "big brother". I managed to get through that year as a pledge, bring up my grades and start on the road to becoming a good person and father. I remember watching Dale and Don Lesher turning a seamless double play on the softball field, and knew our team would be hard to beat. My deepest condolences to Dale's family

I have been trying to get in touch with Dale since the last hurricane last year. Now I just found out that Dale passed away. Dale and I were roommates and fraternity brothers (Tau Kappa Epsilon) at Florida Southern College all four years (65-69). While we were only about 30 miles apart, and both loved golf, it was rare that Dale and I got together. I was looking forward to him retiring so we would have more time available. I am so sorry I didn't know about his passing and the celebration...

Dale always made me laugh when I was teaching at Oviedo High School. My deepest sympathy to the entire family. It was an honor and privilege to have known Dale Phillips.

My sincere sympathy for all those connected to Dale. I have many fond memories of Dale beginning in 1984 when I started teaching at OHS. So many good memories, too much to write. I watched him coach many youngsters in basketball. When I think of kindness, I think of Dale with Carol also. They both showed me support and friendship in my transition moving to Florida. I will remember his positive attitude and humorous commentary. The heavens have gained a new shining star, reuniting Dale with...

Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the children and grandchildren of Dale and Carole. They are truly the kind of special people that make high school years the best years with the fondest memories. At Oviedo HS, Mr. Phillips encouraged my children to play sports and keep trying to excell in all they do. He and Carole are part of the great legacies of Seminole County High Schools.

Mr. Dale Phillips made a really huge impact on Joshua he called JJ and myself. He taught me to never give up in school even on the worst days of my freshman and sophomore year. His jokes, singing, dancing, and inspirational words have made a huge difference on the scps family. I will truly miss Mr. Phillips, you helped me get into rotc to straighten up on grades and stop skipping. Thanks to him now I'm in JROTC and I'm going to always remember him from the bottom of my heart.

I was shocked to hear of his passing. There is no doubt he was a difference maker in so many students lives. He understood the importance of the arts. For some students that was all they had to contribute to in school. Mr. Phillips understood that. He was also quite the comedian himself. Such a loss........

Mr. Phillips was a man who always had a smile for everyone. He was always willing to share a joke or make others laugh in any way he could. He was the true spirit of Seminole High School. He is loved and will always be remembered.

Blessings to all of the family and friends of Dale. I have known him and his family many years thru Carole and Jeannie so sorry for your loss of such a kind and loving man. He loved his family and friends very much. Dot Eller Sowers Dublin Va.
