Phillip Simon Sauls, 49, of Duncan, NC passed away Thursday, October 19th at his home.
Visitation will be held Wednesday, October 25th from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Williford Funeral Home in Fuquay Varina.
Phillip, most commonly known as Phil, was the son of the late Wilbur and Linda Sauls. He was born and raised in Harnett County and lived here throughout most of his life.
In March of 1989, Phil welcomed his first and only child, Darrell.
Phil could be known as a jack of all trades. He took pride in landscaping, painting and his auto repair skills. When he wasn't working, you could find him cheering on the UNC Tarheels or watching NASCAR. He loved to fish, collect things he thought would make him money later on and absolutely adored his dogs. Most times you could find them riding shotgun in his truck. Phil was the first person to lend a helping hand to anyone he thought needed him. He had the utmost respect for anyone who made him a home cooked meal and would go on for days bragging about how much he loved it.
Phil had an undying love for his family. So much so that people who didn't even know his son felt like they had watched him grow up through Phil's endless stories.
As well as his parents, Phil is predeceased by his grandparents and many aunts and uncles.
Phil is survived by his son, Darrell Sauls and his grand-daughter Ella Sauls of Carthage.
He will always be remembered as a loving father, grandfather, friend and the one person you could count on to save money or make money!
A funeral service will be held Thursday, October 26th at 2:00pm at Duncan Baptist Church in Fuquay Varina followed by burial at the church cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions made be made to Disabled American Veterans, PO Box 14301, Cincinnati, OH 45250.

Phil was quite a character sometimes but he had a good heart and was always trying to do anything he could to help anyone he could. I know he has been there for me personally for years. I worked for him cleaning his home and detailing vehicles. I know there we're many times he didn't really need my help but anytime i called he would find me something to do! I know he did this to help me out when i needed it. He has been there to help me financially and helped me with my vehicle many times! He loved to tell me all kinds of stories and I was always there to listen. I know of a whole lot of good deeds he has done to help others and i will truly miss him!! He was more than just my boss he was my friend!! RIP my friend!!

He was a great friend late one afternoon when he brought several tires for my Granddaughters car. She had a flat and her spare was flat. He got it fixed for her and my great granddaughter and a girlfriend. I was there and so thankful for his help. Tried to pay him but he wouldn't accept it. May you RIP Phil!
