Warner Hoyle Phillips was born June 27, 1963 in Napier, New Zealand to his parents, Darl Willard Phillips and Margaret Maxwell. Following high school graduation Warner's passion to be on the water was ever-growing. With that love he embarked several years of worldwide fishing adventures. Later on, you could find his talents being implemented during his dedicated career as a mechanic. Warner was taken from this world, far too soon, on January 3, 2023 in Boise, Idaho. He is loved and will forever be missed.
