Frank "Phil" Prescott

Date of Death: December 7, 2017

Date of Birth: July 10, 1929


AUBURN-Frank Phillip (Phil) Prescott, 88, died peacefully on Thursday, Dec. 7. at the
Hospice House in Auburn.

Phil was born in Lewiston on July 10, 1929, a son of Ronald and Hazel (Philbrook) Prescott . He grew up in Monmouth, attended Monmouth schools, and graduated from Monmouth Academy.
He married Ruth Elaine Hill on August 17, 1947, and for many of their nearly 67 years of
married life, they joyfully engaged in outdoor activities of all kinds, in all seasons. Indeed, Phil's unquenchable curiosity, his creativity, his generous camaraderie, and his undying spirit of adventure resulted in countless interesting, fun-filled, and memorable outings for his family, friends, and anyone lucky enough to be invited along for the ride.

Phil loved coaching Monmouth Little League when his children were young, and he was a proud member of the Knights of Pythias. He worked for many years as a die maker and then foreman, at the Auburn Die Company. After he retired, his metal-working skills, combined with Ruthie' s excellent help and “eyeballing" ability, were put to good, artistic use fashioning (to scale) several families of rebar animals-that still stand in front of his Blue Road home.

In addition to his parents and wife, Ruth (who passed away in 2014), Phil was predeceased by brothers Carl and David Prescott and sister Betty Prescott Hodsdon

Phil is survived by his three children, Dennis Prescott of Tallahassee, Fla., Melodie Prescott
Greene of Calais, and Victor Prescott of Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Surviving siblings include Allan Prescott. Diane Prescott, and Jane Prescott Pinkham, all from Monmouth. He is also survived by four grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and many loving nieces and nephews.

Phil requested that no funeral be held to mark his passing. However, his children are planning a celebration of their parents' lives, to take place at some point within the next year-most likely during the summer of 2018.
