Obituary for Phillip Warren Massie

Phillip Warren Massie, 85, husband of Shirley Ann (Ganey) Massie of Stuarts Draft, passed away Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at his residence.

He was a member of Linden Heights Baptist Church and served his country in the United States Air Force. Phillip was a farmer all his life, worked at DuPont in Waynesboro and retired as an Augusta County Animal Control Officer after twenty-nine years of service. He was a conservationist and was an avid hunter, especially of deer and elk. The legacy of his life was being a founding member of the Shenandoah Valley Chapter Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and was a driving force of the Virginia Elk Restoration Project.
