Phillip Stamps

July 3, 1946 – May 8, 2013

Phillip “Phil” Wayne Stamps, 66, of Oracle, passed away on Wed., May 8. He was born in Taft, California.

Phil lived in the Tri-Community since 1955, attending Avenue B Elementary and graduating from San Manuel High School, Class of 1964. He worked for Kennecott Copper Co. from April 1968 to 1971. He then moved over to Magma Copper Co., San Manuel Division, where he worked from 1971. He retired from BHP Copper Co. in 2003.

Phil was the best dancer around. He also became quite good at doing his woodworking. He made really beautiful kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, jewelry boxes, cutting boards, candle holders and quilt racks, to name a few. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t make.

He was a friend to everyone he met, always helping anyone. He went on a mission for two years, serving in the Great Lakes Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Upon returning home, he met his wife, Barbara (Weaver) and was married for 44 years.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; three sons: Brad, Aaron and Spencer; daughter, Sabrina Delzer; 12 grandsons, five granddaughters, one great-granddaughter and two great-grandsons; his mother, Margarette Stamps; three sisters: Kay, Brenda and Vickie; three daughters-in-law: Evie, Sheri and Amber; one son-in-law, Ronny Delzer; maternal grandmother, Myrtle Bradley, age 104; and many good friends as well.

He is preceded in death by his dad, Charles Delmer Stamps; a granddaughter, Savannah Stamps; and son-in-law, Tony Johnston.

Graveside services were held on Sat., May 11 at Oracle Cemetery. A memorial was held on Sat., May 18 at the San Manuel LDS Ward Chapel.

Phil loved and served his father in heaven, all his life. He could never stop serving his fellow man. We will miss him so much and look forward to seeing him again.
