Obituary for James Douglas Phillips

On September 1, 2018, our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST called James Douglas Phillips home to rest from his labor.

On the blessed day of March 29, 1945. James was born to the late Inez Holmes Phillips and Olen Phillips Sr.

James, “Joe” Phillips grew up in Bellville Community where he attended Union Center School, Bellville, Texas and Austin County High School Sealy, Texas.


During the early years of life, he confessed Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior under the leadership of Reverend Pennington in Houston Texas. Later he became a member at St. John Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Jessie Turner.

Joe was married to Gertrude Harris and to this union they were blessed with fours sons, and two daughters.

He worked for Tex-Tube Company in Houston, Texas as an construction worker for a number of years. Later Joe move back to Bellville, Texas where he truly enjoyed the rest of his life.

Joe loved sitting outside under the tree enjoying the county sunshine and playing dominoes with friends and family. He was very social and entertaining by keeping everyone laughing. Joe enjoyed making people happy and if anyone needed anything he would “give you” the shirt off of his back. He made life “so much more richer and beautiful just being himself”. He will be truly missed.

He is preceded in death by his parents Olen Phillips Sr., and Inez Holmes Phillips, one son, James Harris, three brothers; Olen Phillips Jr., Curtis Phillips and W.C. Toler.

James memories will always be remembered and cherished in the hearts of his loving children; three sons, Roy Harris, Rodney Phillips (Kimberly Phillips), Darrell Phillips (Yashica Phillips), two daughters; Jacqueline Phillips, Tonua Phillips, two sisters; Ruby Davis and Wilma Sanders, one brother; Chineal Phillips, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
