If you knew Clyde W. Phillips Jr, you probably knew a man who was called “Moose.” He left to be with his beloved wife Michelle, the morning of Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

Clyde was born on August 4, 1944 in Junction City, KS. Clyde graduated from high school and went to college at Fort Hays State. There is a bit of time spent at Kansas State but not much education was accomplished.

Clyde courageously fought in Vietnam, as a part of 1-30th Artillery Company, First Cavalry Division. In which he was awarded the Bronze Star. After his tour of duty he married Michelle and created a life and family in Overland Park. He worked for Farmland Industries for most, if not his entire career. We are blessed to learn many of valuable lessons from Moose during his 77 years. One of his lessons was to tell everyone to always say hello with all of your heart to every stranger, because that person may need a piece of kindness and a smile. Clyde was known as a prankster and a spinner of tales.

Clyde is survived by his daughters Janelle and her partner Jan of Manhattan KS, Jill Alexis and her husband Tristan of Seattle WA, his two grandchildren Jack and Eleanor. Clyde is preceded in death by his wife, Michelle who passed away in December 2014.

As Clyde would always say “Remember who you are and what you represent.” Now that Clyde is at rest, please hold him close in your mind and spirit. In lieu of flowers, buy a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts (or cookies, or any sweet treat) and show up to a friend’s or neighbors house uninvited and give them to them. Carry Clyde’s amazing and kind spirit forward for everyone to know.

If time permits, come spin some tales with his family. A visitation will be held 5-7 p.m. Monday, November 22, 2021 at the Johnson Funeral Home, located at 203 N. Washington Street in Junction City. A graveside service with military honors will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at Highland Cemetery. Memorial contributions are suggested to be given to the Good Shepherd Hospice House or to the CAMP L.I.T. Foster Teen Camp.
