A baby boy, this child was named GEORGE PHILIP FRIERSON JR. His mother would say, "he was the best part of her life, by having him late kept her young." He grew up and attended school in Louisiana. Later in life, Phil moved to Dallas, Texas for 40+ years, then moved to Fairfield Bay, Arkansas. Phil loved his the Dallas Cowboys, crawdads, crawfish boils, frying turkeys, taking photos, and going to festivals with Dana, his wife of 28 years. He truly appreciated good music like the blues. (especially, James Brown who was one of his favorites), good food and his good cold COORS LIGHT beer. He really enjoyed attending and watching his grandsons' basketball games, one of his favorite sayings was, "well, hell yeah!"
