LITTLE SEBAGO — David P. Phillips, 52, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 30, 2014.

He was born on May 19, 1962, to Kathryn E. (Anderson) Phillips and the late Paul E. Phillips Jr. He was raised and educated in Westbrook and was a graduate of Westbrook High School class of 1980.

He worked locally for a while before he enlisted in the Army on Jan. 15, 1982. His most memorable time served was in Germany. After serving four years in the Army, he worked for Weyerhauser Container Company until they closed, Homans Associates, and ERI Passive Power. For a few years, he also ran his own small landscaping business.

He resided on Little Sebago Lake since early 2003, where he loved spending time in the cove, on the boat, snowmobiling, and with his closest friends that often stopped by to visit. He was a huge New England sports fan and had a love of racing. He spent several years on a crew at Beechridge and was one of NASCAR’s faithful followers.

Known to all of us as “Bubba,” he was quiet, reserved, and often stood on the sidelines just taking it all in. On many occasions, he surprised us by breaking down a dance move or singing us a song that came out of nowhere.

He was predeceased by his grandparents; his father, Paul E. Phillips Jr. in 2002; and his daughter, Kailah Elise Phillips in 1990.

David is survived by his mother, Kathryn E. Phillips; his daughter, Loralee J. Phillips; his sister, Karen M. Phillips; and a nephew, all of Windham. He also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A visiting hour will be held from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Monday, July 7, followed by a funeral service at 12 p.m. Interment with military honors will follow in Woodlawn Cemetery. Online condolences may be expressed at blaisandhayfuneralhome.com

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: The Maine SIDS Foundation, Attn.: Roy Bagley, 14 Charlonate Drive, Gray, ME 04039.
