We are saddened by the death of Elliott Phillips, who died Saturday, December 5, 2020. Elliott was a long-time real estate developer in Southern Indiana and gave back to the community in which he loved. In Febuary 2020, Elliott received an award from Indiana Parks and Recreation Association for Distinguished Citizen for his donation of the Elliott and Sue Phillips' Pavillion at Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park. He will be greatly missed.
