For many years, Phillip was employed with the Bentonville, Arkansas, schools as a custodian, retiring in 2006. He and wife, Glenda, later relocated to Marquette to be nearer family. Phillip enjoyed going to the beach, swimming, and was a sports fanatic who knew and could quote facts and stats.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Phil’s passing. I knew him and his brothers & his mom from school and going to church at First Baptist in Oxford. I remember him as being a quiet, thoughtful person and very kind.
