Phillip Lynn Paslay, 65, of Searcy went to his eternal rest Monday afternoon, Jan. 20, 2014, at White County Medical Center.
Phillip was born in Eugene, Ore., and raised in Bauxite, where he attended school, played on an undefeated football team and made lifelong friends.
He and his family moved to Searcy 37 years ago and he had lived, worked and taught in this community since that time.Â He was a kind and gentle man and had many good friends.Â His soft heart, dry wit, and willingness to help others will be sorely missed.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Edna Paslay.
TEXARKANA â€“ The Benton Panthers picked up an important road victory on Tuesday night upending the Arkansas High Razorbacks 58-42 in Texarkana.
â€śIâ€™m very pleased our guards are coming along,â€ť Benton Coach Dwaine Fishburn said. â€śIn over 25 years, Iâ€™ve never coached a team that has this low turnovers as this group has. Weâ€™re only averaging five to six turnovers a game and thatâ€™s remarkable.â€ť
Benton (12-5, 3-1 South) would lead 12-9 after the first quarter before expanding their lead to 30-17 over the Razorbacks at halftime.
