Phillip Adams, a member of our "Best of Austin" family (Critics: Kids:"Best Imagination Hour," 2013), passed suddenly in August, 2014.

Phillip was recognized for his weekly kiddo-centric storytime adventure at Whole Foods. Phillip was also an esteemed member of the Capital City Men’s Chorus, finding a second family both in voice and veracity of song. He was a Whole Foods team member, and could always be found among the aisles by beacon of his boisterous laughter. Through WF, he volunteered with Pride Week and the Out Youth Prom, always the first to pitch in and last to leave. All in, wherever Phillip went, he was surrounded by family. We mourn his departure and celebrate his spirit.

There is a plaque celebrating his life and memory at Whole Food's Deep Roots Garden.
