Memorial Fund Established for Collinsville Teacher and Coach Brian Michael Phillips

Brian Phillips recently passed away after a long battle with cystic fibrosis. He was a long time Collinsville resident and a well liked history teacher and coach at his alma mater, Collinsville High School, where he was a member of the graduating class of 2002.

Brian’s long time love of sports began when he was just a boy and continued through adulthood. He loved having the opportunity to coach the kids he spent so much time with and had fulfilled his passion of sports broadcasting this year being the voice of the Collinsville Cardinals.

In 2007, Brian married the love of his life, Ashley Kooken.  A few weeks before his passing, Brian and his wife, Ashley,  found out they were expecting twins. Ashley and Brian's children are expected to arrive in June.

Brian's friends and former classmates have established a website to collect funds for the family.  The funds will be deposited at the Bank of the Lakes and 100% of all contributed funds will go to Brian's growing family. To make a contribution to his memorial fund, please visit this link. Donations may also be made to the Brian Phillips Memorial Fund at American Bank of Oklahoma in Collinsville for Ashley Phillips and their future children and/or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (Tulsa Sooner Chapter) 2642 E. 21st St. Suite 100, Tulsa, OK 74114 or online at
