James Chester Rae Phillips passed away on July 29, 2011 in High River, Alberta at the age of 79 years.


Jim is survived by his wife of 57 years, Ruby Victoria Phillips. He is also survived by his son Don Phillips of High River, Alberta; daughter Donna Phillips of Brooks, Alberta; brother Rolland (Evelyn) Phillips of Logan Lake, BC and his sister Beth Gillespie of Australia. He will also be sadly missed by his grandchildren Ryan (Nicole), Kristin and Derek.


Jim and Ruby lived in the Creston Valley for over 40 years and loved their acreage in West Creston. Dad had an extraordinary talent for fixing anything, even if it wasn’t a John Deere! He enjoyed his time camping in his motor home and fishing for pickerel in Jan Lake, Saskatchewan.


At dad’s request there will be no funeral service.

His ashes will be interred at the High River Cemetery.

Arrangements entrusted to Snodgrass Funeral Home.
