Mr. Edward Leon Phillips, better known as “Odd” went home to be with his Lord and Savior on April 28, 2023, at the age of 66.
Ed was born in Robeson County, NC on May 14, 1956.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Edd and Catherine Phillips, and other family members, Patsy Phillips, Roy Tyner, and David Clifton.
Ed was a rambunctious child and grew into a stubborn adult. He was very mischievous as a teenager, to the point that he decided to join the Army at the age of 17. He was in the military during the Vietnam era, until he medically retired and became a mechanic. His family was the most important thing to him.
He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Tammy Townsend Phillips; daughter, Carrie Jo Zigarelli (Steven), of New Jersey; three grandchildren, Emily, Elizabeth, and Antonio, all of New Jersey; siblings, Billy Fausett, Valerie Moran, Vickey Benedetto, and Scott Benedetto; cousins, George Phillips, Gary Phillips, and Mary Satterfield.
