Cade Marshall Phillips was born on August 26, 2005 in Bryan, Texas to Paul Marshall Phillips and Kim Fridel. He grew up in the Brazos Valley and was currently a sixth grader in Nomangee Middle School in Normangee, Texas. Cade loved football. He was a member of the Leon County Football Association 12-U football team. Donning the number 44 “Lightning” football jersey, he played the positions of full back, tight end and line backer. When Cade was on the field he was in his element and was a pleasure to coach. Ever the inquisitive and venturesome young man, Cade never wanted to miss out on any type of excursion or undertaking. He was more than willing and ready to go at a moment’s notice, born with a robust sense of adventure. Cade had accepted the Lord as his personal Savior at a young age and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Flynn, Texas. He passed away on Saturday, December 23, 2017 in a Houston, Texas hospital. Cade was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, James Fridel.
