In Memory of Dr. Charles W. Phillips, Jr. M.D

From 1970 until 2017, my father was a landmark figure in the small town of Gibsonville as the sole physician available to the residents locally.

For 47 years, he opened his small office to care for the ailing to the best of his abilities, which were top among physicians. He was a graduate of Elon College and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he graduated valedictorian of both.


He served his country in Vietnam, being awarded the Silver Star for his bravery and achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

He made his mark in Gibsonville with his care, even making house calls for those who could not reach him. He saw generations of families who would choose no one else and he was never unreasonable with price, as care was paramount to him.

He never quit until he was physically unable to continue and it broke his heart. After his death, the town expressed an interest in honoring my father in some way, but has yet to move forward in any way.


My father had principles and values that were unmatched in primary health care and he was as synonymous with the town of Gibsonville as the Red Caboose, Wade's Jewelers, Kimbers, even Torry Holt.

It is my belief that he should have a memorial in his honor near the Town Square. I cannot do it alone, as only the town can help with such a thing.

If you believe my father helped you in your life, contriubuted to the town and deserves to be memorialized in the heart of Gibsonville forever, I implore you to sign this petition to take before the town council.


Thank you all for your consideration.


Chris Phillips
