Barry Lewis Phillips, 68, of Chapel Hill, NC passed away on March 15, 2020 surrounded by his family.

Barry was survived by his wife Sara; his daughter Kara (Ricky) Poe; his sons, Alan Phillips (Juliana) and Billy Emory (Elizabeth); two grandchildren, Sophia Phillips and James Emory; and his brother, David Phillips (Joanna).

Barry loved the outdoors, especially spending time at the beach with his family, backpacking in the North Carolina mountains and hiking local trails. He loved watching Carolina basketball and Western movies on TV.

Born in Siler City, to Ruth and Lewis Phillips, Barry graduated from Jordan-Matthews High School and attended Campbell University, earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. After earning a Master’s Degree in Social Work, Barry was a Clinical Social Worker for the state of North Carolina for 30 years. He retired as the Director of Social Work at John Umstead Hospital and continued to work in various social work positions until 2018. Barry always tried to help others when he could. Barry was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He always provided for and made time for his family.

Cremation is being handled by Omega Funeral and Cremation Service in Burlington.

There will be a private celebration of life for family and close friends at the beach at a later date, to be determined.

In lieu of flowers, in condolence, the family is requesting donations to Club Nova, 103-D West Main Street, Carrboro NC 27510.
