Aaron Phillips

Dec. 12, 1985~June 21, 2019

Aaron Mark Phillips, age 33, went to be with our Heavenly Father on Friday, June 21, 2019. Aaron was born on Dec. 12, 1985, to Rosalba Stirk and Mark Phillips. He grew up in Greeley and attended Greeley West High School.

Aaron was an outstanding athlete, a leader on and off the field. He played collegiate baseball and graduated from Missouri Baptist University. He also earned his master’s degree from Regis University in pursuit of his dream to one day become a principal. Aaron first found his passion working as an educator, a coach, a mentor, a leader, and was every students’ number one fan.

Though Aaron was always seen as a superior athlete and educator, he was also an incredible husband and father.

He married the love of his life, Lee, on June 7, 2014, and welcomed their first baby girl, Sophia, on March 22, 2016.

Aaron was fiercely dedicated to protecting and loving his family and was the most adoring father. He was thrilled to learn that he would have another baby girl in Sept. of 2019. His legacy will continue on, not only through his family, but the many lives that he positively impacted, and he will be forever loved and deeply missed.

Aaron is survived by his wife, Lee Phillips; daughters, Sophia and Emma Phillips; mother, Rosalba Stirk (husband, Alejandro Stirk); father, Mark Phillips (wife, Forrest Phillips); siblings, Amber Ziek (husband, Aaron Ziek, children, Tyler, Trevor, and Tanner Ziek), Adam Phillips (wife, Christina Phillips), Victoria Gonzales (partner, Fatima Mosleh), Leo Salcido (partner, Jackie Meza), Sergio Stirk, and Alizabeth Stirk.

A Celebration of Life service is being held at 10 a.m., Saturday, June 29, 2019, at Wiggins High School, 201 Tiger Way, Wiggins, Colo.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made toward the Aaron Phillips Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo location.
