Phillip Smith of Newberry, died January 30, 2020 at the Newberry County Memorial Hospital.
Born on May 3, 1962 in Greenville, South Carolina, he was the son of the late Thomas Wayne Smith, Sr. and the late Judy Marie McCarson Smith. He is survived by two brothers, Thomas Wayne “Toby” Smith, Jr. (Teresa) of Prosperity, and Michael Smith of Columbia. He is also survived by his daddy, Richard Martin (Vicky Hamby) of Belton.
Phillip was self-employed and formerly owned Newberry Cut and Trim. He enjoyed nature. He was a great inspiration to those who knew him especially as he suffered from a brain tumor in these last years and the effects of surgery. He “fought a good fight, he kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8
