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 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.

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.

  1. JRP Jr – always beloved even though distance and circumstance divided us. Our Dad would have enjoyed seeing us together. Like Tommy and Johnny you were a chip off the old block. May you rest in peace. Your sister, Suzanne

  2. My little brother,
    My boys remember you playing with them in Dad’s Pool on our many visits to Rancho Santa Fe. They remember you teaching them their first video games. How they loved their John John,
    I remember my first visit to CA to meet you and all my new sisters. I was 16, you were a toddler. What a beautiful child you were. We had so many special times during your early years.
    I know you are with our two brothers, Tom and John now.
    John will be lovingly remembered by us all.

    Your sister and Family
