Community saddened at death of Averett Phillips
Our town is so sad of the death of Averett Phillips.
Averett was always a very kind man and always had a kind word for everyone.
Oh, how he loved his family. His loving wife Brenda was always by his side, as well as he was always beside hers.
Averett and Brenda would have been married 50 years this year. Averett and Brenda had two sons, Greg and Glen and his wife Heather. Averett had four grandchildren and oh, how he loved them.
He had two sisters and two brothers.
Averett was a man that loved children and young people. He was really close to a lot of other children, even to young men and women that he had known since they were born, and others.
He was a devoted Methodist. He and Brenda raised their children in the Ellaville United Methodist Church. He and Brenda were in church all the time and he took part in the church in any way he could or as needed.
Yes, Averett will always be here with his family and friends through his love and care for others. We as a whole here in Ellaville will always remember what a lovely person Averett was.
