Chase was born on September 14, 1986 to Tim and Diana (Lampe) Phillips in Lubbock, Tx. God chose him to be an angel on April 18, 2016 at the early age of 29. Now he is free of all his battles with addiction and inner turmoil. His presence was larger than life when he entered the room. He had a heart of gold and superior intentions. He graduated from Monterey High School and attended Western Oklahoma State Jr. College. His tremendous love and God given talent for the game of baseball led him to be a starting pitcher for Monterey High School all three years he was there and earned him the name of “Big Philly”. He went on to lead his team to the State Championship his senior year. He was also starting pitcher for Western Oklahoma State and led that team to the Junior College World Series. He was drafted by the Cleveland Indians and the Baltimore Orioles and played for the Orioles minor league organization for two seasons. He also had a need for speed. That allowed him to ride motorcycles and of course he was good at that too. After his nephews were born they melted his heart and he enjoyed spending time with them. Family was very important to him. When he loved, it was from his heart. His most recent accomplishment was working for Shaneda Machinery in Odessa. He loved his job and the people he worked with. He will be deeply missed by all who loved him. He was preceded in death by father, Tim Phillips and his maternal grandfather, Ed Lampe. Chase is survived by his mother, Diana Phillips; a sister, Chelsea Bounds, brother-in-law, Cody Bounds; paternal grandparents, Claudie and Jane Phillips; maternal grandmother, Wanda Lampe, an uncle, Craig Phillips; three cousins, Peyton, Garrett and Caison Phillips; two nephews, Gavin and Gage Bounds and his girlfriend, Valerie Duran.
