William Dow Phillips was born December 13, 1949, in Unionville, Missouri, the son of Herman and Lucille (Millsap) Phillips.  He married Nancy Meade and from the union came a son, Robert Phillips prior to the couple separating.

He worked for Caterpillar but was a farmer at heart.  He enjoyed helping people and farming in his spare time.  Above all else, family was the most important thing to Bill, especially his beloved grandchildren.

Bill is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Cilicia Phillips of East Moline; four grandchildren, Raeanna, Robert II, Rhett and Ryder Phillips; two brothers, Tom and Dan Phillips; and his close friend, Arvie Turner of East Moline.  He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Beverly Flemming.
