Philip Norman Pilgrim passed away peacefully on April 18, 2019 at the age of 60, after a
lengthy illness. He was born to Norman and Jean Pilgrim in Evanston, Illinois. At the age of
five, the family moved to Boulder, Colorado, where he grew up, attending grade school, high
school and graduated from the University of Colorado in 1980 with a degree in Accounting. He
furthered his education by getting his Master's in Accounting at the University of Colorado in
1982. He moved to Dallas in the 1980s and had a successful career in ExxonMobil Oil and Gas
Company. After leaving ExxonMobil, he moved back to Colorado where he spent the rest of
his life.
Phil was an avid outdoorsman, loving hiking, running, skiing, and canoeing with his brothers,
and playing golf with his beloved son, of whom he was extremely proud. One of his favorite
passions was supporting the University of Colorado football scholarship program, and he was
a longtime season ticket-holder. Both his business and his personal interests had him flying
around the world, even meeting his wife at the DFW airport. They enjoyed many years in
Texas, where his son Kyle was born.
Phil is survived by an extended family: his mother Jean Thayer, his son Kyle, former spouse
Debbie, brother Chris and wife Lisa, brother Bruce and son Ethan, stepsisters Lynn Gilley and
daughters Beth and Amy, Trish Thayer, Barb Thayer and son Dan. He was preceded in death
by his father Norman and his brother David.
