Tifton, Georgia

Billy Hugh Phillips, of Tifton passed away at his residence on Sunday, March 3, 2024. 


A Memorial service will be held at a later date.


He was born January 7, 1942 in Albany, Georgia to the late Oscar Phillips and Annie Arrowood Phillips.


Billy led a remarkable life filled with various interests and accomplishments. He was a dedicated individual who retired from the US Government after twenty-four years of service as a communications specialist.
 
Throughout his career, Billy's expertise as a communications specialist left a lasting impact on those around him. He honed his skills through education at Georgia Southwestern and Albany Tech, where he earned his associate’s degree. Additionally, Billy proudly served in the United States Army for two years, demonstrating his commitment to his country.
 
Outside of work, Billy's passions shone brightly. An avid traveler, he explored the world and collected artifacts along the way. His love for antique radios led him to not only collect them but also to restore them to their former glory. Furthermore, he had a knack for building computers and even contributed his talents as an engineer at Channel 10 in the 1970s.
 
One of Billy's proudest accomplishments was his unending thirst for knowledge. His curiosity and dedication to learning made him a respected figure among his peers and loved ones.
 
Billy is survived by his loving wife, Rebecca Doss Phillips, whose companionship brought him immense joy throughout the years. He is also survived by his sister Karen and brother-in-law Jim Reed of Temple, Georgia.
 
In remembrance of Billy, let us celebrate a life well-lived, filled with passion, dedication, and a constant pursuit of knowledge. May his memory continue to inspire all those who were fortunate enough to have known him.
