Med Phillips Obituary

Mr. Carr Medicus Phillips, known by all as “Med”, age 91, entered into rest Sunday morning, March 10, 2024, at his residence.

Born December 17, 1932, in Varnville, South Carolina, he was raised by the late Hurley and Bertha Phillips.   Med was no stranger to hard work.  He retired from the Charleston Naval Shipyard after twenty-seven years of service as a Supervisor from Shop 38 Outside Machinist.  During his life, he also worked at Westinghouse in Hampton, Ricoh Chemical, and was a meter reader for Coastal Electric.  He was raised at Sandy Run Baptist Church in Hampton, which held a very special place in his heart.  He was an active member of Jacksonboro Baptist Church, where over the years he was active in almost every area of the church’s work.  He has served as a Deacon, teacher of the Adult Sunday School Class and on the Maintenance Committee.  He was a member of the Cottageville Hunting Club and also the Frontier Twirlers Square Dancing Club.   He dearly enjoyed hunting and fishing and was always willing to help anyone that he could.  

Surviving are: his wife of seventy-one years, Mrs. AnnaDean Adams Phillips; a daughter, Sara “Kathy” Breland and her husband Danny of Yemassee; two nephews whom he raised as his sons, Tommy Phillips and his wife Cindy of Texas and Leon Phillips and his wife Marion Phillips of Walterboro; two grandsons, Daniel Breland (Devan) of Yemassee and Phillip Breland (Olivia) all of Yemassee; a granddaughter, Wanda Yarbrough (Kevin) of North Carolina; and two great grandchildren, Hunter Breland and Cody Yarbrough.   He was preceded in death by three siblings, Luther Phillips, Viola Jones, and Dannie H. Phillips.  

Flowers will be accepted or memorials contributions may be directed in his memory to: Jacksonboro Baptist Church, care of 114 Wisteria Road, Green Pond, South Carolina 29446.
