Thomas Phipps-Rossman

January 24, 1992 ~ February 4, 2018 (age 26)

 Thomas “The Tank” Daniel Phipps-Rossman came roaring into this world on Jan. 24, 1992. The son of Robert Rossman and Stacie Raup, he was born at Carle Hospital in Urbana and passed away unexpectedly on Sunday February 4, 2018 at home.

Tommy leaves his fiancé Sage Wyncoop and his 3 year-old daughter, the light of his life, Riley, to forever cherish his memory. His unborn child will grow up knowing dad’s love through the many stories and treasured memories we will tell. We know that Tommy would have given anything to stay here for his children, but tragically fate had other plans.

Tommy is also survived by his parents Robert (Courtney) Rossman and Stacie Raup; brother Chad Rossman; sister Brittany Rossman; maternal grandparents Mike & Mary Miller; paternal grandparents Pat & Gary Rossman; and more extended family and friends than we can count.

Tommy was a big kid at heart who loved spending time with family and friends. He was a seasoned video game enthusiast and practical jokester. He knew how to appreciate the simple things in life: a good meal, a good laugh…and a good nap! He will be dearly missed.

Visitation will be on Friday Feb. 9th from 10:30 am-11:30 am at Owens Funeral Home, 101 N. Elm St. in Champaign. Flowers may be received at the funeral home, and any memorial contributions should be directed to his children. Burial will be private.
