Obituary

Passed away after a determined, courageous struggle with illness, Roland Howard Phillips Jr., a resident of Tillsonburg, in his 56th year. Born in Woodstock, son of Roland and Patricia (Patterson) Phillips, son-in-law of Barb Ferris (late Len), of Tillsonburg. Best friend and partner for over thirty years of Mary Ann Ferris-Southcott, Tillsonburg. Loving father of Jordon Phillips who made his dad proud by continuing the family trade as a mechanic using his dad’s tools. Roland’s boys were his pride and joy. Predeceased by an infant son James Phillips and a son Justin Phillips. Roland had two sisters: Susan Phillips (Doug) and family, Tillsonburg and Sandra Phillips (Reinhart) and family, Tillsonburg and a step- brother Jack Crosier and family, Ingersoll. Roland once owned R&M Landscaping, London and loved helping his many satisfied customers. He specialized in working on classic cars and he enjoyed ‘’breathing new life’’ into these cars, much to the satisfaction of their owners.

He was also a former dedicated employee at Zubics, London for fourteen years.
