Known as Walt by many of his friends and church members, Mr. Phillips was a tall, solid, hardworking, religious man with a strong and firm handshake. He worked at a textile plant, Utica Mill, in Anniston, AL for about 30 years. When the plant closed, Walt went to work at Union Foundry, where he retired in the late 1970s. When he was a young man, he farmed and dug wells with his father. He married Mary Grace Hays in 1937 and they had twin daughters in 1939. Walt was a devoted Christian and a member and deacon of Leatherwood Baptist Church for 52 years. He was also a member of the Alexandria Masonic Lodge 208. He loved fishing, gardening, spending time with family, and sitting on his front porch overlooking his favorite church. He also enjoyed taking vacation trips to Florida to see his younger brother Bill or just to go sit on the beach with family.
