  • Phillip Haines Plyler Sr., 79, of Advance died unexpectedly at Forsyth Medical Center on Aug. 14, 2017.

    He was born Oct. 18, 1937 in Forsyth County to William Broncoe and Lois Haines Plyler. He was a 1956 graduate of Griffith High School, and a 1960 graduate of North Carolina State University.

    Surviving: his wife, Amanda Duncan Plyler of the home; his son, Phillip Haines Plyler Jr. of Advance; a brother, Bill and his family of Advance; his sister-in-law, Edna Rose Guy and her family of High Point; his late brother-in-law, Noah Duncan’s family of Cary and Raleigh; and his furry companion, Moses.

    He was a longtime member of Clemmons Moravian Church and active in the Fellowship Class. He loved Moravian traditions, especially the Christmas Eve Lovefeast. Being a caretaker to those he loved was a priority to him. He especially felt blessed to travel to all 50 states and witness firsthand nature in all its glory.

    A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 17 at Clemmons Moravian Church with the Rev. Ray Burke officiating. Burial will follow in the church graveyard. The family will receive friends following the service in the church parlor.
