Kurt Phillips of Newcastle, WY passed away on Thursday June 25th 2020 at the age of 37.
Born in Newcastle, WY on Thursday October 14th 1982 to Mark and Melody Phillips.

Kurt was an avid outdoorsman that loved fishing and hunting through the place he called home, the Black Hills and various other parts of Wyoming. He would often leave town for months at a time that included backpacking through Alaska, hitchhiking through Montana and trips to Arizona. Kurt was never shy to talk about his adventures and was always more than happy to take family and friends along on his fishing and hunting trips, though he often went alone to enjoy the tranquility of the peace and quiet.
Kurt will be deeply missed by the many lives he touched, family and friends that became his family. WE LOVE YOU KURT

This will be followed by a remembrance gathering and celebration of his life with all friends and family at a location to be determined in Newcastle, Wyoming.
