Philip Adams

Philip William Adams, 70, passed away on August 4th, 2023, in Nephi, Utah, on his property which he called heaven. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on November 9th, 1952, to William (Jack) and Marion Adams. Phil grew up near the northern coast in California where he surfed, rode a motorcycle, and created wood carvings from the Christmas tree stump each year. He joined the US Public Health Service as a Dentist and practiced on a Navajo reservation in Kayenta, Arizona before moving to Colorado where he continued dentistry. Phil moved back to California and ran a private dental practice in Beverly Hills until he retired in 2023. He vehemently cared for and supported his three children. He had a passion for music, baseball, and model airplanes. He loved swimming in the ocean and his Great Danes.

Phil is survived by his sister Julie (Scott), his former wife Dana, his children Meredith, Jack (Karen), Hilary (David), and his grandchildren Rachel and Arielle.

He is preceded in death by his parents, William and Marion, and his brother Richard.

Phil was a fun and loving person who never failed to help those around him. He is forever loved and will be deeply missed. May he rest in peace.
