Phillip Alonzo, Jr. was born on September 11, 1969, in Dallas, Texas, to Rosa Linda Alonzo and Phillip Alonzo, Sr. He grew up in Mesquite, Texas where he attended school and was a big brother to Teresa.

He loved fishing, boating and cars. Phillip taught himself the art of window tinting at 16 years old. His skills quickly developed and he was soon tinting ALL of his friend's cars, their friend's cars & their parent's cars! He graduated from North Mesquite High School with the Class 1988, and then moved on to taking classes at Eastfield College. He soon got a job with Moonshadow and continued his career there until the late 1990's. He obtained his Real Estate License in 1999, the same year he met the love of his life, Elizabeth. They were married on October 14, 2000.

Phillip was always smiling, laughing and loving life. He was a devoted husband to Elizabeth, and a Dad to their Boxer, Charli. He loved going to gun shows and the firing range, but one of the things that Phillip loved most was spending time with his family, and being an Uncle. He was a good friend to so many and will be dearly missed.
