Richard Lee Phoebus

February 13, 1933 — July 27, 2022

Richard Lee Phoebus, 89, was reunited with his beloved wife of 65 years, Rosie Lee Roberson Phoebus, in Heaven on Wednesday, July 27, 2022.

Born in Mt. Hope, West Virginia, Richard was the son of Noble and Gladys Sink Phoebus. He served in the United States Air Force before touring the country as a truck driver for over 40 years. During that time, he never had an accident and won numerous awards for his excellent driving. After retirement, he moved to Warner Robins and worked on Robins Air Force Base for a number of years. While working on base, Richard proudly drove the bus for the Robins Air Force Base Band. He loved sports and was a fan of the Atlanta Braves and Dallas Cowboys.

In addition to his wife and parents, Richard was preceded in death by his son, James Phoebus; and brother, Earl Phoebus.
His memory will forever be treasured by his daughter, Dorothy P. Hullett (Bruce); grandchildren, Evan Hullett (Mandy) and Cameron Hullett; three great-grandchildren, Mason, Gracyn, and Parker; brother, Bill Phoebus; as well as a host of extended family members and friends.
