Eual Eugene Phillips   I am a Veteran.
July 18, 1927  -  September 11, 2017


Eual Eugene Phillips, age 90 of Dennard, Arkansas passed from this life to be with the Lord on Monday, September 11th, 2017 at Ozark Health Nursing Center in Clinton, Arkansas. He was born in Snowball, Arkansas on July 18th, 1927 to Carl and Velona (Jones) Phillips.

Growing up in the Snowball community Gene was lovingly known as “Polly”. He celebrated 51 years of marriage to Zorita (Wilson) Phillips before her passing in 2001. Gene was a proud World War II veteran of the United States Army and owned a successful printing business in Memphis, TN. Upon retirement, returning to Searcy County and his “roots” brought much joy into Gene’s life as he rekindled old friendships. Being an avid sports fan, especially his beloved Razorback’s and having a winsome personality, he was a natural for the sporting goods department at Wal-Mart in Clinton.

Gene is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Zorita; three sisters, Venita, Carrie and Quindora; and one brother, Clifford. Survivors include his children, daughter, Lisa Hewett and husband Lee, sons, Jeff, Mike and Chris Phillips; grandchildren, Ryan Hewett, Philip Hewett, Melissa McEndree and husband Ryan, Katie Phillips, Jason Hewett and wife Katrina and Alicia Skeen; great-grandchildren, Kerry Wright, Karson Wright, Zoey McEndree, Tyler and Tori Hewett and Austin, Dylan and Tristan Hewett; brother, Hubert Phillips; brothers-in-law, Verl Sanders and Leon Wilson; two very special ladies who helped care for Eual and that were loved dearly, sister-in-law, Cindy Wilson and niece Kim Sanders; and many other nieces, nephews and extended family who will mourn his passing.

Arrangements are by Roller-Coffman Funeral Home in Marshall, Arkansas. Graveside services for Gene will be 11:00 AM Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 at Leslie Cemetery in Leslie, Arkansas with Bro. Mike Proctor officiating. Pallbearers will be Ryan Hewett, Philip Hewett, Dylan Hewett, Ivan Wilson, Austin Hewett, Ryan McEndree, Kerry Wright and Karson Wright.
