Emmett R. Phillips Automobile salesman

November 11, 1990

Graveside services for Emmett R. Phillips, an Easton automobile salesman, will be held at 2 p.m. today at the Oxford Cemetery.

Mr. Phillips, who was 62 and lived in Easton, died Thursday at the Memorial Hospital there after a heart attack.

He went to work for Bob Smith Buick in Easton more than a year ago after many years at Hallowell Chevrolet, now Gateway Chevrolet.

In the 1950s, he was a crew foreman for the Shriver Natural Gas Conversion Co. in cities along the East Coast and in Canada, changing equipment to use natural gas instead of manufactured gas.

Mr. Phillips, who was born and educated in Hoopers Island, also worked briefly at FBI headquarters in Washington and was in the merchant marine.

He was a member of the Easton Lodge of the Elks.

Mr. Phillips is survived by his wife, the former Edna H. Quirie; a daughter, Diane M. Phillips of Oxford; a son, Glenn E. Phillips of Easton; a brother, John C. Phillips of Hoopers Island; and two sisters, Patricia P. Aaron of Snow Hill and Florence P. Goss of Beltsville.
