With his loving family near him, Arthur G. (Art) Phillips, 103, of Baker City, died Friday, Dec. 11, 2020, at Memory Lane Homes. A family celebration of life will happen when allowed and his ashes will be placed at Council, Idaho.
Art was born on July 19, 1917, at Council, Idaho. He lived a full life in Cascade, Idaho, as the town barber. He retired in Baker City to be near his daughter Marlene. He often talked about all he had seen in his lifetime of more than 100 years, and every year his family had a reunion in Baker including a 100th birthday party which his sister, who also lived to be 103, attended.
Art’s wife, Beth, passed away 24 years ago. He has two daughters, Marlene (Mel) Cross of Baker City, OR and Gloria Ready of Fruitland, ID; 5 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren.
“We want to thank all those who cared for Grampa Art in the past years as you are angels to us and meant so much to him.”
