1952 PHILIP 2024


March 28, 1952 — April 10, 2024

Fort Worth

Philip Alan Slaughter, 72, passed away peacefully at home in Fort Worth on April 10, 2024.

A Celebration of His Life will be held at 11:30 am Wednesday, April 17, in the Sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth. He will be laid to rest privately in Greenwood Memorial Park.

Born March 28, 1952 in Memphis, TN, to Herbert Charles Slaughter and Selma Adeline Daniels, Phil was the second of four brothers. His grandfather, father and two uncles were in the shoe business, and all four boys began selling shoes in their teens. After attending Stephen F. Austin University, Phil worked in the business for more than two decades, earning him the nickname “Shoe.” With a lifelong love of golf, he took his sales experience to the golf industry. Feeling fortunate to represent products and companies he was passionate about, Phil was equally devoted to his customers — many of whom became good friends — and forever demonstrated his belief in the highest customer service standards.

Phil enjoyed cooking and good wine, and was a member at Colonial Country Club. With Julie, his wife of 42 years, Phil loved driving to Texas’ Big Bend region to admire the mountains and night sky. Attending McKinney Memorial Bible Church and Christ Chapel Bible Church for many years, Phil’s strong faith provided great support during his heroic two-year battle for life following a surgical error. 

Preceded in death by his parents and brother David, Phil is survived by wife Julie Slaughter; daughter Mimi Clemons and husband Townes Clemons; son Andrew Slaughter; granddaughters Annabell and Alice Clemons; brothers Paul Slaughter and wife Cathy; brother Stephen Slaughter and wife Brenda; sister-in-law Judy Slaughter; brother-in-law John Ridle; and many adored nieces and nephews.

In lieu flowers, consideration of contributions to the First Tee, in his memory, is suggested.
