Phillip, You Will Be Missed By Many.

  • November 01, 2016

With deepest heartfelt sorrow I share the news that I lost my dearest friend of 35 years. You would know him as Phillip Love, Curator of the Wellborn Musclecar Museum. Phillip passed away this morning.

He and I shared a great day yesterday moving cars around on a beautiful Fall day. We laughed, we joked, and we had a great lunch. We had big smiles all day long doing what we love. Like always, we ended the day with a couple of Coors Lights and recapped what we had accomplished. He and I walked out of the museum door, I watched him lock it for the last time and we parted with our old saying to each other “see ya tomorrow”. I had no idea I was saying goodbye to him for the last time.

Phillip cared about three things in life, his children Brandi and Jeremy, Auburn football and Wellborn Museum. Words cannot express my respect and admiration for one of the finest men I have ever met. I simply could’ve never said thank you enough to him for his dedication and loyalty to my family and the museum. Phillip you will be missed by many and especially me.

We will be closing the museum until further notice. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with his children and family as they move through this difficult time.
