His Wife Tosha said being with Ron was the greatest thing ever. He was all about family he use to call home every night just to make sure I was doing ok and to let me know how he was doing. He always will ask me if I have spoke to his kids before calling just to make sure they were doing ok also. Ron had a gift of handling different situations. he was never the aguring type he was all about peace and love. You could never get him to get mad at anything. I truly do miss my Best friend , Lover and Husband.. Even though our marriage was cut short my love for him will last forever... (1006) You are my Hero!!!!!!

Army Staff Sgt. Ronald Phillips Jr. remembered
Wanda Phillips said a moment with a South African pastor during her son’s high school days was his first nudge toward service.
“God said, ‘If you serve me, I’m going to take you places,’” she said, reading from the family’s written account of what Ronald Phillips Jr. was told that day. “You’re going to be able to run with young people and go with teams. You’re going to countries in the world.”
“All Ron heard out of that was he was going to lead teams,” said his father, Ronald Phillips Sr. “Well, he was a basketball player and said, ‘Oh, Daddy, I’m going overseas to play basketball.’ I said, ‘Boy, that ain’t what that means.’”
Phillips, 33, of Conway, S.C., died Sept. 25 in Bahbahani of wounds suffered when his vehicle struck an explosive. He was a 1994 high school graduate and was assigned to Fort Stewart.
He was known for his love of R&B music and his ability to just draw people in, whether at football game as a child, or fishing with his three brothers as an adult.
He is survived by his wife and two young children.
“He’s my hero,” said Ronald Phillips Sr.
