Philip Chandler Hightower, age 49 of Tuscaloosa passed away December 13, 2019, at home. A graveside service with Rev. John Drawhorn officiating will be held on Saturday, January 4, 2020, at 2:30 pm at Mt. Vernon Cemetery with Magnolia Chapel North directing.

He is preceded in death by mother, Lucy Cargile Hightower, uncles; Dr. Ned Cargile, and Wayne Cargile.

Hightower of Phoenix, Arizona, nephew; David Hightower of Woodbridge, Virginia.

For the last 14 years, Phillip worked at the Northport Publix on McFarland Boulevard and was well-known to Northport Publix customers, originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Philip relocated to Alabama to attend The University of North Alabama, and later moved to Tuscaloosa to be closer to his mother. Although he suffered from persistent health issues, he remained cheerful about his circumstances and his passing, so soon after his mother, came as a surprise. He was truly loved, and he will be missed by his family and friends.
