Remembering Phil Neighbors, Community Servant February 8, 2016
K. Conaway, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life and service of Phil Neighbors. Phil was a pillar in the San Angelo community, and I had the pleasure of working with him frequently over the last decade. Phil dedicated his life to three things: to God, his family, and his community. He and his wife, Susan, had two children together, and four grandchildren. It wasn’t uncommon for Phil to run straight to a city event from his grandsons’ ball games—he seemed to make time for everyone while placing the truly important things in life first. Phil was deeply ingrained in Angelo. A graduate of Angelo State University, he led the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce for the last 10 years. In this role, he strengthened the community and helped Angelo become a better place to live and raise a family. He dedicated his life to this calling, taking on many duties, none of which were too small or large, for the betterment of the community. One example was the bridge he helped build between the Goodfellow Air Force Base and the Angelo community. He established a strong and lasting bond for the betterment of both. He embraced our service-members, and was always willing to support them and our military in any way that he could. As a deacon in the Baptist church, Phil led the church’s college program and many mission trips to Mexico. He was a selfless servant, a trait that extended beyond the city, state, and country’s borders. Everyone felt and knew Phil’s warmness and thoughtfulness of others. His guidance and quiet diligence was reassuring to those around him and helped shape a community that is exemplary in Texas and the nation. Phil had no small part in creating such a community. We lost Phil far too soon, just days after his 64th birthday. His loss will be felt across the community and state, and his service will not be forgotten. Please join me in remembering and celebrating the extraordinary life of our friend Phil Neighbors."
