Phillip Wayne Burgess Sr. was a great father, grandfather and friend. Phillip was a very unique individual. He definitely had a lot of personality, for those who knew him you understand.
He enjoyed every aspect of life and could even face the greatest challenges that were presented to him. He loved his family and friends with all his heart. Phillip had a heart of gold. Even under the worst circumstances Phillip was definitely the person that could still make you smile and laugh. Phillip also enjoyed sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys, fishing and helping others.
