January 22, 1970 - May 21, 2004


On May 21, 2004 our beloved 34-year old son, brother, uncle, nephew and friend, John Richard Phillips, Jr. passed away.
John grew up in Lake Forest, California and spent the last two years working and traveling as a systems engineer for Infogenesis. John’s love of nature and his insatiable appetite for the human experience enabled him to touch people’s lives from the far reaches of the Russian continent to the deep blue of Bermuda.
John is survived by his adoring family including his mother Mary Pitman, his stepfather Steve Pitman, his sisters La Donna, Stephanie, Heather, Nicole, Mari, his brother Todd, eleven nieces and nephews one on the way, three uncles and a circle of friends that spans the globe.
John’s booming voice and infectious laugh will ring throughout our hearts and lives forever. He will be sorely missed and always remembered.
The memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 29, 2004 at 11:00 AM at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in San Juan Capistrano. There will be a visitation Friday evening May 28 from 6 ? 9 PM at O?Connor Laguna Hills Mortuary. A reception will follow the burial on Saturday at the Pitman home in Lake Forest.

    John John,

  3. I love and miss you so much. You will always hold a special place in my heart and I will always cherish everything you have shared with me. From the Mother Hips to Jerry Joseph to Grand Pooh-ba to driving a stick shift. Thanks for being an incredible uncle.

    I will NEVER stop spreading your joy. I will continue your quest. You astonish me in the profound impact you had on everyone you touched. I love you more than one heart can hold. You will be missed in ways I’ve only begun to imagine. I am a better person just for knowing you. Thank you for loving me.
    Your sister and friend for eternity,

  5. John’s Connecticut family was sad to hear of his passing. He will always be remembered as the fun-loving California boy with the infectious laugh. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we didn’t get to see him but he will live on in our hearts just the same. Uncle Bud, Aunt Madelyn and cousins, Michael, Beth, and Aimee
