IOWA FALLS - Philip Lee Lagerquist, 62, of Iowa Falls, died doing what he loved on Monday, Aug.12, 2019, following an accident at Boot Hill Auto. A celebration of life was held Saturday, Aug. 31, at 10188 US Hwy 65 in Iowa Falls. He made his final cruise to his resting place at Cedar Memorial Cemetery in Cedar Rapids, where a burial service was held, on Sunday, Sept. 1.
Philip was born to Nadine Anderson of Sumner and Harry Lagerquist on Oct. 17, 1956, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He was raised by Harry “Jim” Anderson in rural Hawkeye and attended West Central Community Schools in Maynard and Hawkeye Tech in Waterloo. Phil has one son, Colton Lagerquist (Hanna Sorenson) of Iowa Falls, to carry on the Lagerquist name and legacy. He has one sister, Joanne Ede (Donald), of Maynard, who he is laughing at right now as he always said it was going to be one heck of an auction and those who died with the most toys won. His dad, stepdad, brother Jack Anderson and sister Kathy Wiedner have welcomed him to their party at his passing. He had many nieces and nephews who will miss his pranks, jokes, stories, his nickel belt buckle and of course, his cool cars. He only had a few people he wouldn’t have called friends, but he had many special friends who will miss him more than he will ever know.
