His parents and one sister, Sarah Marie Phillips Haddox, preceded him in death.
Survived by his wife, Jeana Phillips, one sister, Phyllis Ann Phillips White. Also nephews, Jamie White, Aaron White, Darrell Haddox, Danny Haddox, and one niece, Donita Perrine. Many other great nieces, nephews and great-great-nieces and nephews.
John worked at the post office in Little Rock after doing his part in the Air Force.
He was an avid hunter, and fisherman, as his family before him. He loved to play jokes and had a wonderful sense of humor. He also had a stern countenance when he did not want you to know what he felt. This was inherited from his father, Floyd Phillips and the Indian side of the family.
We will miss him greatly.
