Phillip M. Tate, 36, of Bristol, VA, went to be with the Lord on October 28, 2020. Phillip was a beloved son, brother, nephew, friend, husband, and a truly awesome dad. He was a deep thinker with a gentle demeanor and a shy smile who loved animals, music, the outdoors, and his family & friends. He was a proud member of the Virginia Chapter of the Bearded Villains – part of a worldwide Brotherhood dedicated to the betterment of mankind through charity and kindness. Phillip adored his children and took every opportunity to spend time with KayLeigh, Kaleb, and the twins, Easton and Quinton. Left to cherish his memory are his children; his beloved wife, Joni Tate; his parents, Ken and Debbie Tate of Ruther Glen; his brother, Jason, sister-in-law, Amy, and nieces, Abigail and Samantha Tate, all of Parkville, MD; his beloved basset hound, Murphy; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
