  • Rodney's greatest accomplishment in life can be summed up in the words "Mr. & Mrs. Rodney Phillips." That phrase has been theirs for more than 40 years. Their "pride and joy" center on 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren. Rodney and his wife love to go out on dates, walk and hikes, savor a cup of hot, home-brewed espresso.
