Harold Phillip "Phil" Plummer, 81, passed away Nov. 18, 2017, in Jupiter, Florida, after a courageous five-year battle with Lewy Body Dementia. He passed peacefully with his loving wife by his side.
He was born Dec. 24, 1935, and was a lifelong resident of Anderson. He retired as a district sales manager with the Coca Cola Bottling Company of Anderson in 1999 after 38 years of service.
He was a member of the Lapel Blue Lodge, Madison County Shrine Club, Scottish Rite of Indianapolis and Murat Shriners of Indianapolis. He was an avid sports fan and loved working in his yard and keeping his
vehicles in impeccable condition. He was the most generous man I've ever met and I am proud that I had the privilege to call him Dad.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Bette Plummer of Jupiter, Florida; daughter, Cindy (Vaughn) Weber of Daleville, sons, Gregg (Olivier Hubert) Plummer of San Francisco, California, and I, Pat (Nicole)
Plummer of Alexandria.
My Dad was my hero, the man from whom I draw my strength and the man who always taught me to try to be better today than I was yesterday. My Dad was a old school tough guy with a huge, soft heart. He always made sure that those around him had everything they could ever hope for even when it meant
he went without. He always told me that "it doesn't cost anything to be kind."
Although my heart is broken, I am thankful that he is at peace. I know too, that I am a better man because of my Dad. I hope that all who knew him can take a moment to think about a funny story or a memorable time with him and raise an ice cold Coca Cola to his memory.
I would also like to thank Dr. Rhoades and Melanie at Anderson Family Practice for their care over the years and Al
"Schuckie" Schuck for always stopping by to see his old friend.
Until we meet again, Godspeed Dad. I love you.
