It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Scott Phillips of Spring, TX on Sunday, August 22, 2021, at the age of 67. His death was sudden but he passed peacefully from his life.
Scott grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and was a graduate of Bay View High School. Taking his education to Stout University focusing on an Industrial Arts degree.
He will be lovingly remembered by many for his incredible talents including his amazing music. No one could speak directly to people's hearts the way he could when playing his trumpet. Which he started at the young age of 7. Because of his talent he was allowed to be part of Lake Band in Junior High. Where he received many accolades for his talent.
Scott moved to Texas. Where he adapted to the Texas lifestyle immediately. Meeting his loving bride of 35 years Penny A. Phillips. Picked up his trumpet again in 2006, taking classes at Lone Star College mastering the art of Jazz. Sharing his talent with several churches in the area. And performing many concerts at Lone Star College. During this time he mastered two recordings of his music. Music was his passion helping anyone he could that might be struggling. Especially the kids that crossed his path. He was all about music. His second passion was History. Always watching programs to enhance his knowledge. And sharing that knowledge with his wife.
Scott will forever be in the hearts of his wife Penny A. Phillips, Daughter Tiffany S. Rincones, Son-In Law Daniel Rincones, Grandson Christopher J. Rice, Granddaughters Kimberly A.
