Lifelong Burlington, Colorado resident Randy Ray Phillips, 64, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, September 8, 2022 in Wallace County, Kansas.

Randy was born on March 8, 1958 in Burlington, Colorado to Raymond and Evelyn (Livengood) Phillips.  He was one of 3 children.  He attended school in Burlington and graduated from Burlington High School in 1977.

During Randy’s childhood he grew up doing 4-H and accomplished his biggest goal winning the Tri-State Royal showing his steer.  He loved playing baseball and wrestling.  Randy was an onery little boy! He had to tease everyone, throwing snowballs at the bus, skipped school and playing in the trees all day were just a few of the onery things Randy grew up enjoying so much.

On February 24, 1980, Randy married Vicki Lynn Abbey in Las Vegas, Nevada.  To this union, two children Brad and Brian were born.

Randy had a love for farming.  He farmed for most of his life and drove combine for harvest for 49 years.  In his free time, his most favorite things to do was to go hunting and fishing. Taking and watching his children during their sporting events was another passion of Randy’s. Later in life, Randy loved spending his time with his two granddaughters.  Teaching Devin how to shoot her gun, getting the go-cart and dirt bike ready for the girls to ride when they came to the farm, taking them for drives around the country and to the Kanorado playground.  Being with them was something he looked forward to!  Randy was also a member of the Burlington United Methodist Church.  He liked his Sunday’s going to church service and taking Vicki out to lunch, then taking his afternoon nap.

Preceding him in death were his parents, his son Brian Phillips and a sister Karon Phillips.
