Phillip Burton, son of Daniel Stellato and Lauren Tincher left this world peacefully at the very young age of just three months. He was a beautiful baby who made his parents so happy and so proud every second he was with them. He was such a happy and sweet child that was smiling at just six days old. He came into this world unexpectedly four weeks early and left unexpectedly four days away from being three months old.
He was strong because he was so loved. He was so strong because he was named after such strong men. Phillip's name comes from his father Danny’s great-grandfather Felix “Phil,” his great grandfather’s first son, “Uncle Phil,” and Uncle Phillip Bell,who all mean so much to Danny, Anthony, and Therese, baby Phillip’s grandparents.
Burton comes from Lauren’s father Thomas Burton, who left us too soon a short time ago, her brother Thomas Burton, Jr. and mainly, her grandfather Burton Mote Tincher, who all mean so much to Lauren and her family.
Phillip was a great joy to watch and grow. His life will always be treasured because he meant so much to everyone who knew him. We are so saddened that there was not enough time with him but so happy to know him for the short time he was with us. He will forever be loved and forever be remembered.
He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Thomas Burton Tincher, his great grandmother Jean Marie Bell. He is survived by his parents, his brother, Anthony Thomas Stellato, grandparents Anthony and Therese (Bell) Stellato, and Claire Tincher, uncles Vincent (Lauren) Stellato, and Thomas Tincher, Aunt Sara Tincher, great grandparents, Joseph “Papa Joe” and Billie Stellato, Janice “Grandma Janice” and Tom Wetmore, Ken Bell, and Patricia Tincher.
