Phillip Wayne Wingfield
3/13/1973 - 6/9/2024
Phillip was a loving father, hard-worker and loved providing and being there for his family. He loved cookouts, football (the Dallas Cowboys), and loved owning his own business. He will be remembered by his mother, father, sister, children, and countless others. 4th of July was always a hit at his house when he invited the whole family. We cooked out, swam and just enjoyed our time with each other. He was a family man and he was taken far too soon. We will all miss you more than words can say. He was taken from us too soon and a senseless act of violence.
