Raymond "Butch" Phillips Jr.

March 23, 1940 — November 5, 2020

Raymond  "Butch" Phillips Jr., 80, of Waterloo, IL, passed away, November 5, 2020, at home with his family at his bedside. He was born March 23, 1940 in Valmeyer, IL.

He is survived by his wife Connie (Morefield) Phillips married of 59 years, his son Tim (Mary) Phillips,  grandchildren Chris (Tara) Phillips and Eric (Lindsey) Phillips, three great grandchildren Phoenix, Maliyah and Xandric Phillips, one great great granddaughter Katalina Phillips, sisters Pat Todd and Wanda Harr, nieces, and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents Raymond and Rosaline (nee Plage) Phillips. 

During Butch’s life he served in the Army, enjoyed family, camping, fishing and riding his Harley. He is retired from the Waterloo school district.

Butch always said what he meant and meant what he said. 
He lived life with the thought:  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in a well preserved body, but rather thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “WOW...... what a ride”

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: 
Hospice of Southern Illinois

Private Family Service will be held with a Celebration of Life at a later date.
