Phillip Lemos spent his entire life in Lafayette. He attended Lafayette Elementary School and graduated from Acalanes High School in 1956. After college he joined his family’s grading and excavation business. In 1970, he became a CPA, and established a private practice with his wife Kitty. A kind and generous person, Mr. Lemos is most remembered by friends and family for his strength of character. Mr. Lemos loved the Lafayette community and was proud of his family’s history in town. As an early and generous supporter of the Lafayette Library, he believed in the benefits of the Library as a community hub and planned within his estate, a legacy gift to ensure adequate library staffing and open hours for generations to come.
