Edwin Charles Phillips
Edwin Charles Phillips age 67 from Redding, CA, passed away Aug 18, 2016. Son of Edwin & Ruth Phillips born in San Mateo, CA. on Feb 22, 1949. Ed was loved and will be greatly missed by his children; son, Ed Phillips and daughter Chantell Gibbins, son-in-law Brian Gibbins, daughter in-law Michelle Phillips and grandchildren Brandon & Ashley Phillips, Jessica & Jacob Gibbins, as well as his beloved dog Jezebelle.
Eddie also known as "Fast Eddie." He worked most of his life hanging drywall for the Carpenter's Union. He worked on many high rise buildings throughout the Bay Area. In his later years he opened his own business restoring hot rods and motorcycles under "Eddies Rod & Kustoms" in Redding, California. A venture he truly enjoyed as much as his Harley Davidson and spending time with family and friends. Often times you would find him in his shop strumming away on his guitar where he would greet you with a smile and joke.
Our Father and Grandfather was loved by many and will be greatly missed. He touched many lives in his every day conversations with his colorful stories, jokes and off the cuff comments; his helping hand; and his natural instinct of being the protector to all that are close and dear to him. Our Father and Grandfather lived his life to the fullest, always thankful and grateful to be alive each and every day. He enjoyed life, loved his family, friends and the tight community of friends that he worked and lived beside every day at his shop on Bechelli Lane.
Please join us in a Celebration of Life for Ed Phillips on September 3rd, 1:00 pm at Don's Sandwich Shop (3034 Bechelli Ln., Redding, CA).
