Tink was the beloved son of Doris (nee Schuster) Phillips.
He was preceded in death by his beloved father, Donald Phillips, and cherished nephew Jason Phillips.

He was a dear brother to Donna (Andy) Prodoehl, Denny (Robin) Phillips, Dean (Joan) Phillips, Duane (Tammy) Phillips and Dawn (Chris) Hettich.
