Samuel “Sam” Cole Phillips, 27, passed away on Friday; June 26, 2020 in the Colony TX. Sam was born March 31, 1993 in Ft. Worth, TX. A former graduate of Granbury High School, he received his finance degree from North Texas University & was a Financial Advisor with Fidelity Investments. A coach’s dream, Sam loved sports, especially football. He also loved music, the lake and going to the movies. Sam had the biggest heart and always had a smile on his face and gave the best hugs & kisses. He never knew a stranger and when he walked into a room, he could light up a room with his witty charm, smiles, and laughter. Always generous & kind and cared more for others than himself. He was a true blessing to all those that knew him. He had a deep love for his family, his friends and fraternity brothers. Sam had a bright future and always aspired to be the best he could be and never settled for less. Our angel forever missed but never forgotten. “Now cracks a noble heart. Good night sweet prince: and flights of angels sing thee to rest.” Shakespeare
