In Memoriam: Bill Phillips – Ragged Mtn. Ski Patroller

Danbury, NH-William J. Phillips III, 51, of Danbury, NH, died Saturday, December 28, 2019, at his home surrounded by friends and family after an intense battle with cancer.

He was born in Asheville, NC, on May 14, 1968. He grew up in Fairview, PA, and enjoyed several summers of sailboating with his dad, family, and friends on Lake Erie. He graduated from Cathedral Prep School in Erie and then moved out west, working on ski patrols in CO and UT. He married Jennifer McVey, a friend from Erie, and they eventually moved to Montana. After moving to MT, Bill studied land surveying and started a furniture-making business while maintaining his job as a ski patroller. After his divorce, he moved to New Hampshire to be close to family. Bill met his partner, Liz Bolton, while they were both ski patrolling at Ragged Mountain. They purchased a home in Danbury, NH, and have worked at the ski resort together for the last ten years.

Bill was an avid skier from his first experience at Peek n’ Peak in New York State at the age of six. He was an outdoor enthusiast and skiing was his passion. He enjoyed hiking, camping, woodworking, and even became a halfway decent gardener and cook. Bill loved dogs and he always had one by his side. His fun-loving, carefree energy brought people together. He made friends everywhere he went and was loved by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed.

Bill’s father, William J. Phillips, II, died in 1983. He is survived by his mother, Suzanne Phillips, and his sister, Alexandra Phillips, of New London, NH and his partner, Elizabeth Bolton of Danbury, NH; and his aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A celebration of life will be held at
