Mr. Phillips, known as "Poppop" by his grand- and great-grandchildren, retired from Langley Field in 1975, and then spent many of his weekends following his favorite softball team, The Green Machine, of Mathews everywhere they played.

Ashberry; grandchildren, Scott Downs and wife Rachel, Jamie Hunley and husband Jimmy, Amy Hudgins and husband Andy, Wesley and Phillip Ashberry and five great-grandchildren.
