Bradley S. Phillips


Bradley S. Phillips

Born on May 17, 1968, in Clovis, Bradley S. Phillips passed away on April 7, 2023, at the age of 54, peacefully at his home in San Antonio, Texas.

Brad is survived by his wife of 30 years, Melissa Phillips; son, Justin Phillips and his fiancé, Sarah Flannigan; and daughter, Hayleigh Phillips.

He is also loved and survived by his parents, Howard and Penny Phillips; sister, Melissa G. Phillips and her children, Sarah, Aaron, Austin and Kyleigh; along with father-in-law, Norbert Moya, Cynthia and William Martin, Steven and Alissa Moya and their children, Alessandro and Stefano Moya; and several loving aunts, uncles and cousins, including Amanda Moore.

He is preceded in death by grandparents, Carl Gail Moore, Thelda Poor and Donnie Poor; and mother-in-law, Rose Marie Moya.

Loved and supported by all who knew him, Brad fought a strong and fearless battle against brain cancer for 2 1/2 years. Brad, adored by all who knew him, was always the life of the party, always ready for dessert or an old fashion. Though he will be sincerely and gravely missed, the family takes peace in knowing they have Brad watching over them.

The family would like to say a special thank you to all his care team over the last few years, especially Dr. Christopher Bogaev, the oncology team at MD Anderson in Houston, Hope Hospice, and The Estates of Shavano.

If you prefer, in lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to American Cancer Society to help and support the funding of research into finding the cure for cancer.
