November 27, 1949 - December 6, 2014
Nov. 27, 1949 — Dec. 6, 2014 Philip Richard Lind of Albany was born in Corvallis and passed away of metastatic melanoma on Dec. 6, 2014. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dick and Jessie Lind of Corvallis. His is survived by brother Dan and sister-in-law Andrea, and their children, Greg and Nicole; brother Brian and sister-in-law Melinda, and their children, Allison and Craig; and brother Doug, all of Corvallis. He also is survived by wife Pam and son John of Albany. Phil was a 1968 graduate of Corvallis High School and was active in the Boy Scouts. He received a bachelor’s degree in music education from Oregon State University, lettered in diving and earned a master’s degree in music education from Western Oregon University. He loved his nine years teaching music at Brixner Junior High School in Klamath Falls, and always was delighted to run into his students. He also taught in the Phoenix-Talent and Halsey schools. It’s a surprise to many who knew Phil for his charm and laughter to discover he was a drill sergeant in the Oregon Army National Guard. He made a mid-career change to pursue his love of computers, receiving a bachelor’s degree in computer sciences from Southern Oregon University, followed by 12 years working for the City of Ashland and more than 10 years as the information technology director for Linn County. Music remained a big part of Phil’s life. He was well known as a tenor, and sang and toured Europe with the OSU Choralaires and with the Rogue Valley Chorale. More recently, he sang with the Willamette Master Chorus and in the Albany First Presbyterian Church choir. Phil also had the acting bug, performing with the Albany Civic Theatre in the 1980s, and more recently in “The Music Man” and “Man of La Mancha.” Phil enjoyed being a dad, and was active with his son in the Boy Scouts of America Calapooia District in Albany. Phil, Pam and John were glad to share a wonderful time last summer traveling together to Greece with the Heart of the Valley Children’s Choir. A celebration of life will take place at 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9, at First United Methodist Church, 1165 N.W. Monroe Ave. in Corvallis.
