Sam was a lifelong resident of Randolph County and a graduate of Ramseur School. He was an avid farmer and a member of Farm Bureau, serving on the board of directors for 40 years. Sam was a dedicated church member at Holly Spring Friends Meeting. His sense of humor rarely missed an opportunity to open the way for laughter to bring light to a situation. Sam's gentle spirit, strong sense of integrity, overwhelming love for others, and deep desire that all people know Christ’s love, leave for us a shining example of his journey to live a Christ-like life.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Esther Lou Lowe Phillips, his parents, Arren and Eulah Macon Phillips.
