Mr. Hines was one of my favorite platelet donors. He will be missed my many. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Reading each one of these memories about Phil, they capture exactly who Phil was. I'm still at a loss for words to describe the sadness I feel at his passing into Glory.
I know he is resting in peace and I pray for you Kaye, April, Mindy and entire family. His smile and laugh I shall always remember, and the raising of his eyebrow too.
He truly was a servant of the Lord, and will be greatly missed. You are continually in our thoughts and prayers. May the Lord grant you peace and comfort in the coming days.

In my previous post of memories I neglected to mention the trip Phil, Kaye and his mother took to Hawaii seven (?) years ago to reconnect with his son, Bob. The whole family was so happy and excited about it. I know Phil thanked God every day for all three of his children and his seven grandchildren.
~ Jane Hines - July 21, 2017
Phil was a good and faithful servant, not only to his God but also to those here on earth. We are so especially grateful for our recent travels together and the memories we have. His calmness was infectious. We will miss you. Love in Christ!

Phil was one of the 'good guys'. His heart belonged to the Lord Jesus and to Kaye and the girls. My clearest first memory of Phil was at our dining room table with Kaye before the engagement. Genuine, fun, hardworking, loyal, honest, a servant with a big smile are some of the ways I would describe him. Always apparent was his love for his family. He is missed, grieved, and forever loved by many friends. I believe Heaven is a bit more alive and laughing with him!
May God bless you, Kaye, Mindy, and April!! To be blessed means to be made happy! Hang on to the memories as they will bring comfort. Jesus will give direction for the future, peace, and contentment in His time.
You are loved by us and many others!

Dear Kaye, April, Mindy and family, I want to express my sincere sympathy on the home going of your dear husband & father Phil.
My thoughts and prayers have been for you since I first heard of the news Sunday at TBC.
May our assurance of eternal life comfort you at this time. But I do know how hard this is for you. But we know that our great God is faithful.
I love all of you so much and will keep you in my prayers.

Phil and my twin brother Terry Conner had one thing in common - Phil could tell me more in one sentence than what I would need a paragraph to express the same amount of information.... Phil never hesitated to tell me exactly what was on his mind but could do it with a quiet tone - yet the undercurrent of his voice was direct and intentional - he always seemed to choose his words carefully never intending to be harsh, but at the same time always holding firm to his position - regardless - whether or not you agreed with him.... thank God, I don't ever recall being on the other side of any issue he expressed an opinion for....
I'll always remember his handshake as well - firm, but never over-powering - I don't say this of many people, but Phil was a man's man.... self-assured, firm - with a very soft side, dedicated to God and family, steadfast - like a mighty oak tree -and also one of the most Godly men I've ever known.
I can only hope that I'll be able to live up to the standard that men like my twin brother Terry, my older brother Steve, and Phil have set in place for the rest of us to live up to....

When Phil’s older brother, Stephen, was in high school, Stephen performed in a play in which he had to kiss the leading lady. Philip was mortified and hid his face the entire time. Given his early embarrassment at anything mushy, it is surprising what a pussycat he turned into as an adult.
• Before Phil and Kaye were married, she had the Hines family up for a meal. One of the things she served was mashed potatoes and gravy. The gravy was so lumpy and thick you could have cut it with a knife. I avoided it. Phil just smothered his potatoes with it and ate it. Now that’s love.
• After attending one of the girl’s high school graduations, Phil told me he used to think those things were ridiculous, but he guessed he had gotten sentimental, because now he wouldn’t miss any of them. That is love.
• He might be embarrassed to know that Kaye told me Phil told her she was his best friend. And, he not only loved her, he liked her too. What a sweetie.
• When Mindy got married, I was delighted at what a joyful occasion it was. I finally understood the attraction of a wedding dance. Little Cybil was five or six at the time, and she was dancing up a storm. Ever the wallflower, I was standing on the sidelines, next to Phil. He must have sensed my itchy feet, because he asked me to dance. I doubt he ever knew how much that meant to me.
• Phil was not the most eloquent of speakers but I remember his toast at April’s wedding and how blessed he felt to have the two sons-in-law God had given him. He was so handsome that night.
• So back to the dancing. Turns out he had taken lessons so he was prepared to dance at his daughters’ weddings. That is love.
• The water pressure in my home was horrible, and Phil spent many hours hand digging this beautiful ditch in my yard to replace the water line. The neatness of that ditch was indicative of Phil’s attention to detail. The hours he spent under my house replacing the plumbing is just one more example of his love in action.
When we were gathered at Phil and Kaye’s house on Sunday after hearing the news of his death, I kept thinking the one thing that would comfort me would be a hug from Phil. I loved his hugs, and I loved my brother.

So sorry to hear about Phil. Just can not hardly believe it. Jim works with him a lot at harvesters. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Kaye and all your family at this very difficult time. May god give you the peace and comfort at this time.
Our blessings to you
~ Jim and Carol Ellis - July 20, 2017
Dear Kaye and Family,
Jackie and I are so very sorry to hear that Phil died. We are praying for you and your family in your great loss.
~ Don Petersen - July 19, 2017
I am so sorry for your loss. Your entire family is in my prayers
~ Karol Luttjohann - July 19, 2017
Phil was a wonderful person. He always had a smile on his face. He will be missed. Sincere Sympathy to Kaye, April, and Mindy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Your cousin Dianne and Jeff and Aunt Mae. Keep in touch Kaye. Luv you

Most everyone that has grown up around me knows many of the stories of what it was like being his next younger sister and adoring playmate. I, for the most part thought he could do no wrong. I agreed to go along with every scheme he came up with and some of them could have gotten us in a lot of trouble. I think he managed to live through childhood and not kill or permanently injure any of the rest of us because God had a higher calling for him. I'm not idealizing Phil in death beyond what he was in life. Boy, would that ever embarrass him and probably make him a little mad. As a kid he loved to rough-house always to someone else's detriment but I can't think of a single person that he accidently injured that wouldn't jump at the chance to get to play with him again. As Phil grew up and gave his life to the Lord he did a lot of good things for family, friends and complete strangers. He would be the first to admit that there were also many things he wished he had done differently. God did take care, very good care of my brother. He blessed him with three of the nicest children any man could ask for and He hooked Phil up with the perfect wife, Kaye. I do grieve that, except for a couple maybe, of his grandchildren, they won't know what a wonderful grandfather they had.
~ Christine Owens - July 19, 2017
Dear Hines family, I am so sorry for the grief you are going through. Even though we don't understand. Why Lord? Why? We know he is in this and he will be ever present to get you through. I pray for comfort and reassurance of his abiding love for all of you. We love you. God planned for Becky and Mindy to become friends and for us to be invited to TBC. You have been a blessing in our lives ever since.
~ Mary Goheen - July 18, 2017
Words can never completely express the impact Phil had on my life. I will
miss you so much. Thank you for being the best brother-in-law ever. Love you.
~ Paulette Palmer - July 18, 2017
You were a true brother, firend ,mentor, and I loved and respected you more than you will ever know, the first time I met you had a killer grinder in your hand,had a blade that was big that it was made for, it was then I knew you were cut from a different stone,in a good way.anyway loved you and will never forget you ,I can see him having a conversation with Jesus. Yours all ways gordie besser
~ Gordon Besser - July 17, 2017
I'm very sad for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Phil on the Mars job a few years ago where he was the best reluctant steward ever! I always walked away with a smile. Rest In Peace Brother
~ Dave Emerson - July 17, 2017
Phil worked on many projects of mine and I always knew I could count on him to get the job done. His way of viewing life was original. I enjoyed many conversations with Phil about work and life. He will truly be missed. It is always a shame when one works so hard then gets to retire and that retirement is cut short. But I believe Phil is one of those individuals that enjoyed life to its fullest. I will miss all those words of wisdom that would come from Phil. I know he will be missed by his family but take comfort that Phil lived and know he is with the Lord. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.
See you in heaven Bubby.
~ Brad Hutton - July 17, 2017
Rest in Peace Bubby! I'll treasure our friendship forever. You are still the best Plumber/Pipefitter I've ever had a chance to work with. All of your Local 441 Brothers have awesome memories of working and learning with you. We could rely on you to give advise when needed and the occasional (done with love and affection) kick in the pants. Many of us remember you taking the time to explain how and why something worked. Always with gentle patience. I tried to schedule work for our apprentices so that they had time working with you so they could see first hand the right way to do their jobs.
My heart aches for your wonderful family, may they know the peace that comes by you being a fine Christian man. You are a great Union man! Anytime the local asked for help, you were there. Local 441 will never replace you in a thousand years, we can only strive to emulate you.
Love and Respect,
Business Representive Local 441
