For the Enterprise

Joe and I had a lot in common.  We both grew up on a farm in Davie County, graduated one year apart from Davie High and worked at the Mocksville Post Office as letter carriers.

But, this is not about me. This is about Joseph Edwin Phillips, whose life was cut short at the age of 54.

Joe spent his childhood and early adulthood on a dairy farm where he was taught a strong work ethic along with how to have fun in life. As a child, he loved riding motorbikes and bicycles, shooting guns, listening to music and playing guitar. His easygoing, fun-loving personality spilled over into the work place. I remember he would come to work after already putting in hours milking cows and go about his daily routine without complaint although he did write a song about the “post office blues.”

As Eric, Joe’s son, has stated, his father was one of a kind who marched to the beat of his own drum but at the same time brought his energy and love to spread around among family and friends. Joe would oftentimes play at small venues in and around Mocksville; he was an active volunteer at the arts council and had a special passion for music and the arts.
