Phillip Stanton Fleming, 51, of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, passed away on March 31, 2019. The family will receive friends from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, Wed., April 10 at Speaks Suburban Chapel, 18020 E. 39th St., Independence, MO 64055. Memorial services will begin at 10 am, Thursday, April 11 at the chapel; cremation. In honor of his love of technology and its power to inspire students, memorial donations may be made on Phil’s behalf to the Fort Osage Educational Foundation in support of the CTC Inspire Robotics Team, 2101 N. Twyman Rd., Independence, MO 64058.
Phil was a loving husband, devoted father, and dedicated educator. As a high school teacher in the Independence, Blue Valley, Lee’s Summit and Fort Osage School Districts, he inspired thousands of students to learn and love science and technology with his unique, fun-loving style. He put his whole heart into all that he did, and in the end it wasn’t strong enough to sustain him as long as he was needed in this world.
Phil is survived by his wife Maria and sons Alexander and Ethan Fleming of the home; mother Sheila, and siblings Fonda and Frank (Susana) Fleming of Independence. They, along with his extended family and many friends, will miss him dearly but hold on to the love he shared and the legacy he has left behind.

My condolences to the family of Mr. Fleming for their loss of their husband and father. I hope you can find comfort and peace in the promise found in the Holy Scriptures of an earthly resurrection when we will be able to see our loved ones again. This promise has brought me great comfort and I hope it can do the same for you. (John 5:28, 29)

Phil was a good man and a great teacher. His love of science was an inspiration to his students. He retained a childlike wonder about the world which energized students in the most positive and productive way. He will be missed, but not forgotten... my sincerely condolences to his family.

Brad Henry said "A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning." He must have known Phil.
