Print this storyPost A Comment LITTLETON - Mr. Neal Cornelius Phillips, 80, of 331 Woodlandhurst Road, Littleton, died Thursday, Aug. 20, 2009.
He was the son of the late David and Pauline Phillips. Neal was raised in Sumter County, Ga. In 1943 he attended the Capital Page School in Washington D.C., where he worked for former Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn of Texas. After high school he attended the Citadel in Charleston, S.C., where he studied engineering. Neal joined the Navy in 1946 and was sent to Duke University to study mechanical engineering training and then was accepted into the Navy's pilot training program. Following completion of the program, Neal flew surveillance and anti-submarine missions in the Caribbean. He left the military in 1950 and entered into the Navy reserves, retiring with the rank of captain.
After his military service, he attended George Washington University and worked for the FBI crime laboratory, but his desires brought him to North Carolina where he purchased 70 acres of land outside Halifax and began farming. In 1956 Neal accepted a position with the U.S. Soil Conservation Service and later became executive director of the Halifax County Stabilization and Conservation Service until his retirement in 1986. Upon his retirement from the Federal Government, Neal accepted the position of Halifax County manager, where he served until 1995. After serving as county manager, Neal had worked part time for the City of Weldon as its town administrator. During his long life of public service Neal also served on the Halifax Regional Medical Center Board, Halifax Community College Board of Trustees, the Local Advisory Board for BB&T, the Halifax Development Commission, the Lake Gaston Weed Council and the Retired Naval Officers Association.
In addition to his parents, Mr. Phillips was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Peggy; and his sister, Martha Boleman.
...
The family would like to thank the many wonderful friends who have been so kind to Neal: The entire staff of the Town of Weldon, who Neal enjoyed working with and loved as friends, his friends and neighbors on Lake Gaston, especially his friends, Terri Hudson and Joan Shell.

Neal Phillips 2/08

I had the honor of knowing Neal for the last 32 years of my life.From the moment I met Neal, I saw a quiet soul who had integrity, who meant what he said, who was honest, funny, and generous to a fault.

During our marriage we went through some hard times, but Neal taught me to look at the bright side of the hard times, to be independent and how to love.
Neal Phillips was born on June 5, 1936 to Robert and Josephine Phillips of Los Angeles.
...
Neal chose to serve his country by joining the Navy on Aug. 25, 1953 and served during the Korean Conflict until May 24, 1957 when he left with an honorable discharge.
After leaving the Navy, Neal worked construction jobs.He was working construction jobs in Ridgecrest when I met him.We were married on March 16, 1974 and Neal's two teenage children by a former marriage, Vincent and Bonnie, came to live with us.
...
Neal will be remembered for his love and service to his family and friends.He was always willing to lend a helping hand.He did not judge others because he knew that, but for the grace of God, he would not have the good fortune that he had.
Neal left us on Sept. 25, 2004, but I believe he is waiting for us for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
He was a loving brother to Gary; father to Vincent Phillips and Bonnie Frank; grandfather to Jeremiah and Kris Krill, Kristine, Shannon and Brandon Phillips and Heather Henry; wife to Linda Phillips and friend to many.
Neal is free and in the arms of those who love him and he will always be in our hearts.
