Waborn Ray Phillips, age 61, Mound City, Kan., passed away at his home Tuesday Jan. 21, 2020. He was born on Sept. 6, 1958, in Harrison, Ark., to M. Glen and Estalee (Braswell) Phillips. He graduated from Blue Eye High School with the Class of 1976.
After marrying Peggy Haas on Oct. 3, 1998, Waborn followed his passion for his career as a dental technician, and became owner of Phillips Dental Laboratory in 2003.
Waborn’s greatest joy was any time family would gather at his home. He loved to visit, catch up on family news, tell stories and usually ended with a game of four-point pitch. He loved hunting, fish fries, crab boils and bonfires. He was always up for getting the kids, family and friends together outdoors riding four-wheelers, hunting, fishing and playing front yard wiffle ball games. His excitement and energy wasn’t easy to keep up with.
Waborn was preceded in death by his father; and an infant sister, Marsha.
He is survived by his wife, Peggy; mother
Estalee Phillips; son Brandon Phillips, wife Kara and grandson Ryker; daughter
Megan Brockhoff and husband Ben; sister Teresa Tibbets and husband Doug;
stepson Michael Grube, wife Stacy and granddaughters Alyssa and Lauren; stepson
Kevin Grube; a brother, Marvin Phillips; a niece, Lora Compton, husband Joy and their children Trevor,
Treyton and Trace. He is also survived by a niece, Michelle Tibbets; a nephew,
Jarrod Phillips and wife Anika; niece Alisha Standlee and husband Zane; and niece
Andrea Benoit, husband Andrew and niece Tammy Smith. He is also survived by
numerous great nieces and nephews, extended
family and friends.
Waborn’s family wishes to express their gratitude to Good Shepherd Hospice for their help and support.
