Phillip D. Tice

Phillip D. “Phil” Tice (January 13, 1941-September 20, 2010), Grand Worthy President of The Fraternal Order of Eagles, passed away at the age of 69. Phil was a dedicated Eagle member for nearly 50 years, joining Parkersburg, W.Va., Aerie #2307 in 1962, following his discharge from the U.S. Navy.

In the years that followed, he held several local and state offices before being named West Virginia State President for the 1989-1990 fraternal year. Two years later, Phil was appointed Mid-Atlantic Regional President under Grand Worthy President John Lester Zimmerman.

In 2001, he advanced to the Grand Aerie as Grand Inside Guard and held the positions of Grand Worthy Conductor, Grand Worthy Chaplain, Grand Worthy Trustee and Grand Worthy Vice President before being installed as Grand Worthy President at the 2010 International Convention in Louisville, Ky.

Phil took great satisfaction in telling people about the Eagles and all they give to local and national charities. His special charity for the 2010-2011 fraternal year was The Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center at The University of Iowa.

Phil was retired from the Allegheny Power Company and loved spending his free time bowling, fishing, golfing and camping.

He is survived by his wife, Donna, six children and 10 grandchildren.
