Grand Marshal – Philip Spittle

Philip Spittle has been a resident of Nokesville for 70 years. He is the third generation of five in the Spittle family to attend Nokesville schools. As a boy he took part in the local chapter of Boy Scouts and in high school at BDHS, he played football and was on the 1966 National Dairy Judging team.

After graduating high school he attended Shepherd College and graduated with a BA in education in 1972. A self-employed man all his life, Philip started his career in construction by obtaining a class A contractor’s license and from there built over 75 quality homes and developed two small subdivisions. Married to Linda Wood in 1974, he has three sons, Jesse, John and Jeremy who are all, with their families, residents of Nokesville. Philip was a BDYB coach and team sponsor for many years while his boys were young.

Philip credits his success in life to God’s faithfulness, his Savior Jesus Christ, the strength of the Holy Spirit, God’s word and daily prayer. God’s hand has watched over him and his family and enabled him to be a deacon, elder, Sunday school teacher, Cemetery Committee member, mission volunteer, softball coach and player for fifty years.

Thank you to the Friends Uniting Nokesville, and the Nokesville Christmas Parade Committee for selecting me to be the Grand Marshall this year. I am truly humbled to be so honored. — Philip Spittle
