It is with sorrow that we share the passing of our loved one.
Growing up in Parksville Phil started logging at an early age, his lifelong career. In 1952 his work took him to Terrace where he and his family lived for 17 years. He then returned to Parksville; working in the woods industry and with the municipality until he retired. His home was a hobby farm in Errington where he spent many happy years gardening and tending to the property until a move to Duncan in 2000.
He was predeceased by his son Jim in 2006.
He will be lovingly remembered by Peggy, his wife of 70 years, daughters Susan (Pat), Patti (Ron), daughter-in- law Cheryle, son Bryan (Tanya), 11 grandkids, 13 great grandkids as well as many extended family members and longtime friends.
There will be no service as per his request.
