Phillip “Phil” A. Feder, age 74, of Neenah, WI entered his heavenly home to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, April 10, 2023 at Milwaukee VA Hospital, with his loving family by his side.
Phil was born on November 8, 1948 in Berlin, WI, son of Oswald and Vivian (Gitzel) Feder. He graduated from Green Lake High School in 1967. Phil served our country from June 1968 - June 1970 in the US Army during the Vietnam War. He made many friends during his time in the service and held on to those relationships throughout life. After returning from the war, he worked at Alliance Laundry Systems. He retired from Alliance after 43 dedicated years. He had 2 children from a previous marriage. He spent countless hours on Spencer Lake with his children, water skiing and boating. Phil married Patricia (Kaap) Feder on May 31, 2003 at Hillside Assembly in Ripon, WI and gained another daughter. They became grandparents together and delighted in quality time with the grandchildren.
Phil taught his children and many others the value of hard work and a strong faith in God. He cherished time sharing his testimony about how God spared his life during his service in Vietnam. He took pride in caring for his yard and the flowers he planted every summer. Phil had a passion for reading and enjoyed golfing and hunting. He played basketball and was a wrestling coach in his younger years.
He is now in the arms of Jesus - his Lord and Savior. His whole life was a walking testimony of who Jesus is and what He can do. Phil touched many lives through the way he lived and shared his faith. He will be greatly missed.
