In Memory of Joe Phelps

Sadly, we lost our colleague Joe Phelps on Wednesday, February 20. Joe was a cherished member of the Metro United Way family, a brother to the labor industry he represented, and a respected leader in all aspects of his life. His passing will leave an irreparable scar across the hearts of many, but his indelible legacy will never be forgotten. To those he impacted, we share your sadness and pray for your comfort in this difficult time. We join the community in mourning Joe. Even while grieving his loss, we certainly know that Metro United Way is a better organization because of him.

His family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his honor to Metro United Way. You may do so below. Please keep Joe and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.
