Philip V. Eastman – Woodruff, Utah

With mixed feelings we have to say goodbye to our special husband, father, grandfather, brother and loved one. Philip V. Eastman (80) passed away, due to complications related to Alzheimer's on June 17, 2018. He was surrounded by loved ones.

Philip "Phil" was born on Aug 3, 1937 in Evanston, WY to William and Melva Hanney Eastman. He was raised on the family ranch in Woodruff, UT. There he learned to hay, ride horses, and milk cows with his brothers and sisters. He loved all sports but his favorites were basketball, football, boxing and rodeo. In high school he was on the basketball team and as he got older he rode bareback in rodeos.

He worked on construction sites until he was drafted into the U.S. Army. There he spent most of his time in Fort Sill, OK in the missile division and was special awarded for finding a missile that had been lost during training exercises.  After the army he married Lola Anderton and they were later sealed in the Logan LDS Temple. They have been married for 55 years and have four children: Vicki (Mark) Winesburg, Scott (Karla), Darren (Maydi), Chad (Brynn) and 11 grandkids: Derek, Brittany, Haley, Madison, Mikayla, Melinda, Kennedy, Phoenix, Trevor, Lola, and Andrew. Phil retired from the Kemmerer Coal Mine in 1998.

He is preceded in death by his parents, three sisters in law Norma, Sallie, Constance, one brother in law Danny and one granddaughter Annie.

A viewing will be held June 22nd in the Woodruff Chapel from 6 - 8 PM and on June 23 from 9:30 – 10:45 AM with funeral services following. Burial will be at the Eastman Cemetery with military honors.
