Phillip was preceded in death by his father, Phillip D. Barron, Sr.
Phillip was a senior deputy with the Victoria Sheriff’s Department. He worked at multiple campuses throughout the Victoria Independent School District as a School Resource Officer. Phillip impacted thousands of students and their families during his tenure at Crain Middle School, Howell Middle School, Victoria West High School, Victoria East High School, and most currently at Stroman Middle School, his presence on each campus ensured that all were safe under his watch. Always making sure that he was not only visible but personable, he established lasting relationships with all those he was protecting. Phillip had a love for all his family and friends but an even deeper passion for his grandchildren, baseball and the Dallas Cowboys. Outside of his role in the school district Phillip spent his time influencing the youth by coaching sports, umpiring, and participating in activities to show support for all the kids he helped impact over the years. On a Cowboy game day you could find a blow up helmet sitting on a well manicured lawn and a Dallas cowboy flag proudly displayed outside his house. He was a loyal cowboys fan through and through. Leading his family, on the campus, at a school event or on the field, Phillip was a valuable role model using his integrity and goodness to set the example for all of us.
