Philip Junior Partin, Jr., 76, died on February 3, 2018 after deciding he’d had enough of this &*^%. He was born on April 20, 1941 in Barbourville, Kentucky to Philip Partin, Sr. and Ellen (France) Partin, a fertile woman who gave birth to 11 children . . . at home . . . without epidurals. Philip was an Army reservist, a skilled and talented musician, a truck driver for 40 years, and a duct tape artist, “fixing” many household items and cars with his beloved art medium. He spent the last ten years in a nursing home, where his orneriness got him into trouble from time to time, but the staff quickly learned that Philip was happy when he had a cup of coffee. Later in life, Philip developed an adoration for cheeseburgers and never hesitated to request one or two from family and friends. Philip is preceded in death by his wife Evelyn Sue (West) Partin, who died in 1994, his parents, and nine siblings. He is survived by three talented, funny, and good-looking children, Pepper Partin and her spouse Wendi Garringer of Illinois, Candace Vanata of Fishers, and Jerry Partin of Vermont, two grandchildren, Rylie Partin and Cullen Partin, of Vermont, and a sister, Brenda Amburn, of Parker City.  Philip’s remains will be inurned at Jericho Cemetery. No public service will be held. The family plans a private graveside memorial picnic in the summer, whereby coffee and cheeseburgers will be the main menu items.
