Michael Gene Phillips was born on April 6th 1956 and went to be with the Lord on April 24th 2017. Mike was a beloved father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He has an over abundance of friends and was loved by all who knew him. Mike was a family man and an extremely hard worker. His passing is sudden and an unimaginable shock for his family. Unfortunately, Mike had no life insurance and the burden of funeral expenses have fallen on his children and in this time of grief we're reaching out to our friends and family asking humbly for help. Anything given will be put directly to funeral expenses and will be greatly appreciated. Mike is the father of Rena Phillips who is a member of El Bethel Baptist Church in Shelbyville, TN, Michael Phillips Jr. Of Springfield, TN, and Michelle Wix Of Franklin, Ky.
