Thomas Phillips, 74

October 16, 2020

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Thomas W. Phillips, 74, of Pittsfield, passed away Oct. 16, 2020, at Massachusetts General Hospital.

He leaves behind his wife of 53 years Beverly Phillips and their two daughters, Kristen Phillips and Ashley Phillips, along with his sister, Diane French.

Tom was the founder and owner of Phillips Industrial Services Inc. where he primarily worked at Pratt and Whitney in East Hartford, Conn. for the past 45 years.

Tom was an accomplished drummer and loved to be active and moving. If you were ever in need, he would help in whatever capacity he could, not for what he would gain, but for what he could give. When he wasn’t working, his primary focus and love was his family. Nothing was of greater importance.

He left behind a great name and legacy and will remain in our hearts forever. For all who knew Tom personally...over and out from the Industrial Giant.

Funeral Notice: There will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Beverly Phillips to help defray medical expenses, in care of DERY FUNERAL HOME, 54 Bradford St, Pittsfield, MA 01201.

A beautiful legacy. No greater share to have is FAMILY. You and he have been through thick and thin together. I'm sure that he will be missed very much. We shall see him again very soon but this time when not ill. Look forward to our next meeting.
