Granville “Phil” Louis Phillips Jr., 65, passed away at his home in Cartersville, GA on January 7, 2021. Phil was born on August 7, 1955 in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

Phil had a laugh and a smile that was contagious.  He often shared his love for the water with his family and cherished friends. He enjoyed LSU football, being outdoors and spending time with his loved ones and dog, Maggie. He was the beloved soccer coach for the girls’ soccer team and a member of the football coaching staff at Cass High School for 18 years. Throughout his coaching career, he found fulfillment through loving the players that he coached as his own. Phil lived larger than life. He was a passionate and jovial man who brought so much love to all with whom he spent time. 

Phil is preceded in death by his father, Granville Phillips Sr, his mother, Alice Phillips and his sister, Linda Carroll.

He was such a funny, caring and vivacious man- thanks Coach for all you gave to the kids, “your” kids that is, and for putting up with us parents.
