Phillips, John Mark

Avid Deer Hunter Also Enjoyed Deep Sea Fishing

Monday, July 22, 2019

John Mark Phillips passed away on July 20, 2019. He was 76.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Hazel Phillips and a sister, Patricia. He is survived by his only known relative, a cousin, Barbara Mesecar, in Alto, Mi. John was a care giver to his mother and sister until their deaths.

 

John graduated from Hixson High School and attended Tennessee Tech where he studied engineering. He held various positions at the Mueller Company, Lockheed, Lorraine Crane, and Miller Industries.

 

John loved hunting and fishing with friends. He was an avid deer hunter and a member of the Old Timers Hunting Club at Cherry Branch, Tn. He was a competitive shooter, and an excellent marksman. He also enjoyed fishing in the Tennessee River and deep sea fishing near Panama City.

  

He was a longtime member of the North River Y and made many friends there. Having no local living family, his friends at the Y sort of adopted him. He was challenged with many health issues through the years, but always maintained a positive and independent spirit flavored with a sense of humor.

 

A memorial service will be held Friday July 26 at 3 p.m. at North Chapel Chattanooga Funeral Home, Highway 153 in Hixson. Interment will follow in Hamilton Memorial Gardens. There will be no visitation prior to the service.

 

Arrangements are under the care of the North Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home, Crematory and Florist, 5401 Highway 153, Hixson. Please share your thoughts and memories at www.chattanooganorthchapel.com.
