Philip Carl Scheble Jr. died April 16, 2014, after a courageous six-year battle with glioblastoma multiforme. Born August 15, 1969, in West Lafayette, Ind., Phil lived a life filled with wonderful friendships, a successful career and a beautiful family. His proudest accomplishments were his two precious daughters who meant the world to him.
Awarded a B.A. in economics in 1992 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Phil was a Tar Heel to the core and lover of all things basketball. Phil was a member of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity and served as president. Through the fraternity, he built a network of friends who supported him and lifted him up until his very last days. After graduating from UNC, he moved to London and worked for the Bank of Bahrain and Kuwait.
Phil moved to Dallas in 1993 to work for Cantex Realties, Inc. In 1999, he joined Charter Holdings where he enjoyed an accomplished career in the commercial real estate industry. As senior vice president and partner at Charter Holdings, Phil underwrote and coordinated the acquisitions and financing of income-producing properties. He left Charter Holdings in late 2012 and started Badin Investments where he worked until his death.
Shortly after he moved to Dallas, Phil met his best friend and soul mate, Lollie Powell Manning. He and Lollie married October 16, 1999, and built a life together in Dallas, where they enjoyed raising their two daughters, walking their beloved dogs and spending time with family, friends and neighbors.
Phil is preceded in death by his father Philip Carl Scheble Sr. He is survived by his loving wife, Lollie Manning Scheble, and their beautiful daughters Mary Susan (8) and Elizabeth Powell (2) Scheble; his mother Sharon Lockyer and husband Barry Lockyer of Ocala, Fla.; sister Kristen and Steve Flory of Azle, Texas; sister Shannon and Gary Arnold of Jamestown, N.C.; and brother Jeff and Deborah Scheble of St. Petersburg, Fla. Additional survivors include: in-laws Ellie and Walter Manning of Dallas; sister-in-law Martha Manning of Dallas; sister-in-law Sally Manning King and husband Taylor King of Birmingham, Ala.; and his beloved dog Beau.
The family would like to thank Dr. Elizabeth Maher and the doctors at UT Southwestern for their unparalleled commitment to Phil’s medical needs and nurses Sarah McNeil and Tonya Walls for their loving care.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
