Phillip “Phil” Hand Hall, 67, of Watha passed from his earthly life on Friday, November 3, 2017 at his home.
He was born January 2, 1950 in Pender County, the youngest son of the late Colon Wendell and Lois Gray Saunders Hall.
Phil served his country honorably in the US Navy during the Vietnam Era aboard the USS Claude V. Ricketts with tours of duty in the Mediterranean and was a disabled veteran.
Survivors include a son, Mikel Hall (Robin Hosford, his mother) of San Marcos, TX and by his three brothers, James H. Hall (Carole) of New Bern, NC, Thomas W. Hall (Linda) of Henderson, NC and William C. Hall (Mary Beth) of DeBary, FL. Phillip is also survived by a grandson, many nieces, nephews, cousins and his close friends, especially in the Watha area.
Phil grew up on the family dairy farm in Penderlea and graduated from Penderlea High School before enlisting in the Navy.
After service, he toured the country and tried landscaping, fence installation and truck driving before settling in Texas. He also completed training and worked as a certified nursing assistant before returning to North Carolina.
A kind hearted soul, Phil loved southern rock music, country and western movies and motorcycles, but reveled in being the tough guy always living life on his terms.
Family will have visitation Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 2pm to 4pm at Quinn McGowen Funeral Home in Burgaw, North Carolina.

Growing up on Penderlea, I always knew Phil along with his Brothers...they were all older, but we all shared a bond having been neighbors on Raccon Road.... dairy farm and nursery side-by-side....Phil was always so nice to me... And I always enjoyed talking to him.... especially after he came home in the early 80’s..... always sharing his garden with me. And, Phil and his Brothers had a ‘Great Mom and Dad, Ms Lois and Mr. Colon’.... great people!

Phil was such a huge part of my life for so very long. Best man at my first wedding. He loved my sister Robin so very much and I am glad I got to be there to share that. I miss his smile and his big hugs. Rest In Peace now Phil.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. I hope that these scriptures at Job 14:14,15 and Revelation 21:4 will provide some comfort for the family and friends. Also, for some comforting articles please visit jw.org.

My condolences to you, dear family. And many happy memories of Phil be with you. But when sadness comes, may these loving promises from Jehovah God help you to endure. "Do not be anxious....but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7; Isaiah 25:8 NWT.
