Phillip Matthew Ratliff, 44, of Harrisburg, NC, passed from life on earth into the arms of his Heavenly Father on August 9, 2015. He was surrounded by family and friends. His wife, Jenni, was at his side.

Phil was a native of Louisa, KY, a graduate of Lawrence County High School in Louisa and a graduate of Marshall University in Huntington, WV. He played football at Marshall from 1989-1992, was a two-time NCAA All American Offensive Lineman, was captain of the 1992 National Championship team, and was inducted into the MU Athletics Hall of Fame. Phil served as head football coach at Spring Valley High School, assistant football coach at James Madison University, and coached the tight ends at Marshall University before moving to UNC Charlotte in 2012 as recruiting coordinator and to coach the offensive line.

Phil had a magnetic personality that touched the lives of everyone he met in some special way.

Phil loved his Lord, loved his family, loved his players, loved his friends and coworkers, and loved life.

Left to mourn the loss of Phil but to cherish the many lasting memories are his loving wife of 21 years, Jenni, and their two children, Haley and Dylan of Harrisburg, NC; his parents, Darrell and Sharon Ratliff; brother Brian (Darla) Ratliff and their children Josh and Caden; sister Melinda (Travis) Feltner and their children Jackson and Kensley, all of Louisa KY; mother-in-law Martha Hill of Madison, WV; and a host of extended family members and friends.
