Connor James Phillips Obituary

On Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 6 p.m., Taylor University freshman Connor Phillips died in Muncie, Indiana from complications linked to pre-existing health conditions.

Born June 19, 2003, in Great Falls, MT as the second child of Mike and Julie Phillips, Connor claimed Franklin, TN as his hometown after living there nearly 9 years.

Connor Phillips graduated with the class of ‘22 from Centennial High School in Franklin, TN.  At CHS he wore jersey #7 as a lacrosse goalie for the Cougars. Investing even further in his chosen sport, Connor Phillips worked with performance coaches from Fine Tune Lacrosse and played on the Nashville Ignite adult lacrosse league after graduation this spring.

Connor also served as an assistant coach for the Franklin Knights Lacrosse team while in high school and gave back to the community by serving with Fellowship Kids at Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, TN.

Connor was subsequently signed with Taylor University in Upland, IN and began his freshman year in August of 2022.

While at Taylor, Phillips was enrolled in the Exercise Science major, with a planned coaching minor. He committed early on to the men’s lacrosse team, signing on in January 2022 and stepping into his preferred position as a goalie — in the process, swapping his HS Cougars #7 for Taylor Trojan jersey #10.

As a brother, son and peer, he will be missed by a diverse community of people.

Connor is survived by parents Julie and Mike Phillips, along with older sister Casey — a junior at Belmont University in Nashville, TN.
