Phil Whitfield Obituary, Death – “The passing of Phil Whitfield has caused all of us to be in a condition of great melancholy. We, along with so many other individuals, have such wonderful recollections of him, and we are not alone in this regard. I can’t think of anyone else but Phil who has garnered the admiration and favor of as large a demographic as he has throughout the course of his life.
In addition to being an outstanding representative for the Cowboys, he was a great friend and docent for our art program. This program was developed with the goal of interacting with children and inspiring them to explore art. We are going to suffer a great deal from his absence. Phil was the kind of person who, after meeting him for the first time, you would never forget because of his genuine friendship and his undying passion for the arts and the Cowboys.
He was also the kind of person who would make you laugh until you cried. Mr. Phil and I have worked together over the course of the last three years. I was the one who turned on the light switch for him so that he could see better in his art class. The insight that he shared during our conversations was quite enjoyable to me. The ones we have, while he’s eating lunch with us, are always the ones we remember.
You are going to be missed very, very much. My deepest condolences go out to you, Ms. Gene Jones, and the rest of the Jones family on your recent loss. My deepest condolences go out to every single one of his family. As we get set to say our final farewells, I pray that the Lord brings each and every one of you a sense of calm and tranquility.
