I first met Larry working at the Winchester Police Dept. Larry was my boss in the Emergency Communications Center. This was my first job straight out of high school and I was the youngest in the center at the time. Larry was wonderful to work for. He was funny, supportive, extremely intelligent and could fix anything wrong with the computers or consoles! He always had some sort of tool in his hand fixing something!! As long as there was a pot of coffee on he was happy, although I never saw him in a bad mood all the years I worked there! My thoughts are with his family and I will always remember his sense of humor and patience while I worked for him. Thinking of you, Megan Moreland

I remember Larry when we were kids in Gainesboro and later worked at the same service station in Sunnyside . We joined the Navy at the same time and the last time I saw him was when we were in "boot camp " . Great guy and I'm sure he will be missed by many . Allan Farmer

Larry (and Sharon) were always giving people...Knowing they were coming for a visit always put a smile on my grandmother's face. She loved them both as though they were her own flesh and blood, and they held a special place in her heart and in the hearts of her family. Sharon, Larry, Donnie, Debbie, and Angie may you find the courage and strength to move forward and find peace in knowing Larry was loved by so many Know you are in our thoughts and prayers, Karen Anderson, Granddaughter of Mildred Gardner Largent .

This is one of my favorite pictures. I had decided to crash the "brother's" breakfast day at McDonalds. I have fond memories of the times I have spent with the Phillips' gang- Christmas, family reunions, anniversaries, etc. I love you all and miss you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. All my love, Tina

I have and always will be grateful to Larry for giving me my initial start in Public Service. The photo is of Larry and the rest of the group he initially hired when he took over as communication supervisor for the City of Winchester in July of 1977. Those are fond memories now gone bye. Larry was one of the best bosses I've ever had during my employment history. He was easy to talk with, he had a personal side to him that extended to his subordinates, he was fair, he was intellegent and was just enjoyable to work for. He was a coffeeholic as I remember never refusing a good hot cup when ever the opportunity was made available. My sympathy to all his relatives as I know he was devoted to his family.

I was given a chance by Larry as a dispatcher for the City and am where I am now because of him. There is no way I could ever say thank you enough for that. I respected him and admired him. He was able to fix ANYTHING. Larry was one heck of a man. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
LeeAnna Pyles left a message on July 28, 2010:
Larry had a big impact on my life. He was my boss and my friend for 15 years. I thought of him often since I quit dispatching. He was a good person. He loved Sharon very much. I will always remember that when ever you saw them together they were holding hands. He adored his chidren and grandchildren. Larry will probably never know the influence he had on the people whose lives he touched. I hope that I am a better person today because I knew him. Rest in peace my friend.

Larry Phillips. A wonderful man in every aspect. Boss, friend, husband, father. I met Larry in 1978 and he was my boss by title. I can't count the times he bent over backwards to make my job easier. That's who he was. His sense of humor was unbelievable and always kept us going in a very stressful job. You will be missed by those who respected and loved you. Donna Hildebrand July 29. 2010
