May 2, 1959 ~ January 22, 2013
"Philip was a devoted and loving father
who worked tirelessly to provide for his family,
and a generous friend who never met a stranger."
Philip McKee, born May 2, 1959, was taken in death from his family and friends suddenly and unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 22, 2013. Philip McKee was born at home to Charles and Marian McKee in Kelso, Washington. He was welcomed into the world with older sisters standing by ready to cuddle him.
He coached little league for the children and loved talking about how proud he was of their accomplishments to co-workers and friends.
Philip is survived by his good friend and ex-wife, Jeanne; their four children, Jenny, Mary, Kevin and Nick; son-in-law, Chris; daughter-in-law, Julie; granddaughter, Jayla, the apple of his eye; mother, Marian Campbell; nine brothers and sisters, Esther McKee, Carol Bundy, Linda Stern, Paul McKee, Barbara Browne, Naomi Branson, Michael McKee, Jonathon McKee and Miriam Ordez; many wonderful sisters and brothers-in-law, as well as many precious nieces and nephews.
Philip's earthly presence will be deeply missed
and he will be remembered with countless memories. While we live with sorrow, we never lose hope
in the mercies of our wonderful friend, Jesus.
