Greg  Phillips


Greg Phillips, 50, of Cave City, departed this life on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019 at the Medical Center in Bowling Green.
He was born on July 25, 1969 to David Phillips, of Texas, and Shirley Brooks Phillips (Wayne Schultz), of Florida.
The last several years, Greg was affectionately cared for by his uncle and late aunt, Larry and Nancy Cushenberry, whom he referred to as his "Daddy-Daddy" and "Mom".
Greg had the special ability to touch lives and bring joy to others. He graduated in 1990 from Warren Central High School, and continued to cheer for the Dragons. Greg volunteered with H.O.T.E.L., Inc. and was a participant in Bowling Green Special Olympics. He was a former member of Broadway United Methodist Church in Bowling Green, and a current member of Highland United Methodist Church.
Greg could often be found at the family business, Ridgetop Lake, greeting customers and watching the fishermen. He had a passion for Corvettes and pencils, and was as avid sports fan. He was the only UK fan in his family, and proudly wore his blue and white on a daily basis. Greg was the happiest when his whole family was together.
Besides his parents and caretaker, he leaves to honor his memory three cousins, Kim Johnson (Jeff), of Owensboro, Laura Harper (Chris), of Cave City, and Mackenzie Taylor, of Glasgow.
In addition to his "mom", he was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Julian and Marjean Brooks.
The visitation will be from 2-8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15 and 9-11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 16 at Patton Funeral Home, Park City Chapel. The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 16 at the funeral home with interment to follow in Evergreen Cemetery.

Shirley, prayers for you and your family. My memories of Greg are of him as a little boy at the Greenview functions. I am sorry we are out of town and will be unable to attend the service. Thinking of you.
