Phillip’s Obituary MR. PHILLIP HOWARD, 67 of 326 Henderson Street, Oxford, transitioned from this life on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at Duke Medical Pavilion Center in Durham, North Carolina. Phillip was the youngest child and only son born to the late John and Bettie Howard. He was educated in the Granville County Schools and was a proud graduate of Toler High School Class of 1970. This was the last graduating class of the Eagles. As a young adult, he joined New Grassy Creek Missionary Baptist Church. Later, he served as the Vice Chairman of Trustees. Because of his love for music, he was a member of the Gospel Choir and Male Choir. Phillip enjoyed socializing and family gatherings. Because of his lively personality and affectionate heart, he was loved by all. Every interaction would lead to hours of laughter and joy.
