April 12, 1950 - September 1, 2020
Phil took his final flight from this earth into eternity on September 1,2020. He leaves to mourn his passing, Beth, his wife of 48 years, their children; Jonathan, wife Marian and their daughter, Cadence; Janette, husband Leighton, their sons Alex and Gavin; Allison,husband Jarid, and their sons Evan and Matthew. His loss will also be felt by his siblings, Earl, Elaine, Paul, Ken, Karen, and Loralyn, their spouses and children,as well as Beth’s siblings, Doris, Rob, and Corie and their families. Phil ‘s career in banking, first with RBC, then with ATB, moved the family to 10 different communities over more than 30 years. In each, friendships were forged that have lasted decades. Those friends will also miss him. Phil loved the Lord, his family, and his friends, but his passion was flying. He said that even as a young child he remembered dreaming of flying, Peter Pan style, over the countryside. Those dreams became a reality when he discovered the sport of gliding. We often teased him that it didn’t matter where a conversation began, it inevitably ended up being about flying. He loved sharing the experience and many people say that his taking them for a flight was the thrill of a lifetime. Due to Covid restrictions the celebration of life service will be limited to 100 people by reservation, but will be live streamed and also recorded to be uploaded to the web for those unable to attend. In lieu of flowers, should friends so desire, donations may be made to the Foothills Country Hospice, where Phil spent his last week. Address: 322001 32 St. E, Okotoks Alberta, T1S 1A5. www.countryhospice.org Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (Craig Snodgrass) 403.652.4242.
