Toney Nelson Phillips, 58, of Meadow Lane, Morehead, known to family and friends as Nelson, passed away Monday, November 26, 2018, at his residence.

Born January 30, 1960, in Lexington, Nelson is the son of Mary Haggan Phillips of Morehead and Toney Cloy Phillips, who passed away October 22, 2007.
