Robert Allen Phariss was born on November 8, 1933, in Breckenridge, Texas, to Otis Benjamin Phariss and Martha Lucinda Everts Phariss. He attended school in Breckenridge and was a proud member of the 1952-53 State Champion football team. After graduation, he attended Ranger Junior College, where he met his darling wife, Beverlie Crawley. On June 12, 1954, the two were married in the Boys dormitory at Ranger Junior College. He served his country as a private in the United States Army. He worked for the Texaco Pipeline Company for 38 years until his retirement in 1994.

In his retirement years, he loved watching the Buckaroos, the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers and old TV westerns. Most mornings were spent at the L&L Kitchen with the Old Geezers Coffee Club. His daily routine included coffee at L&L, a visit to the post office and purchasing a winning lottery ticket. Bob loved hunting, fishing and watching his grandkids participate in sports. His greatest love was family. He was adored by his late wife, his children, grandchildren and his nieces and nephews. Daddy, Papa, and Uncle Bob will live in our hearts forever.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Otis and Martha Phariss; his loving wife, Beverlie Phariss; one daughter, Debbie Phariss.

Bob is survived by his son, Robert P. Phariss; his daughters, Leeia Neal and husband Gary, Lorna Moore, and Lisa Wright; ten grandchildren, Dr. Chase Phariss, Teri Wooddell, Jennifer Taylor, Trey Neal, Tye Jeffrey, Trista Hawkins, Cody Wright, Danielle White, Kay-Anna Cargile and Stephanie Ramirez; fourteen great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
