October 5, 1944 - February 2, 2021
Ronald Richard Phillips, age 76 of Vineland, passed away peacefully after a brief illness, on Tuesday morning, February 2, 2021, at Inspira Medical Center in Vineland. Ronnie was born in Medford, NJ, raised in South Jersey, and was one of 13 children. He was a longtime resident of Millville, and spent the last nine years living in Vineland. He married his loving wife Rosaline, and they shared over 20 years of loving marriage together. Ronnie was no stranger to hard work. He grew up working on the family farm and then worked at a junkyard for several years. He went on to work for the Construction and General Laborer's Union Local 172 as a form layer (jackhammer operator) for over 38 years, retiring in 2007. Woodworking of any kind was Ronnie's true passion. He was an expert woodworker and enjoyed crafting all types of special projects, both large and small, for family and friends. He was a big, fun-loving guy who loved helping anyone he could lend a hand to, whether it was a stranger, friend, or family member in need. Working in the garden and going to flea markets were a few of Ronnie's favorite pastimes. He loved being in the great outdoors, and the dirtier that he could get, the better. He also treasured the time that he was able to share with his family, friends, and his dogs. Ronnie will be sadly missed by his loving wife Rosaline (Coleman) Phillips of Vineland; his step-daughter Roseanna Moore of Vineland; one brother Warren Phillips and wife Sue from the hills of South Carolina, many nieces, nephews, and cousins; and his three loving shih tzu's, Candy, Piper, and Icarly. He was predeceased by his father, John Warren Phillips; and twelve brothers and sisters. Services for Ronnie will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of the Christy Funeral Home, Millville.
