Philip was a very dedicated family man who loved his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Emily was the love of his life. They did so much together and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, going for rides, watching the animals in nature and feeding birds being out in nature was his happy place. Especially the birds in his backyard you could never get to the cloths line for the patio was covered in bird seed. He loved feeding the ladybugs he would leave a line of carnation milk to enjoy and loved watching them enjoy. Most of all he loved playing with his grandchildren, making special time for each of them and attending all their activities and events if possible. He always had a smile on his face for each, and a lap to sit on and a joke for each. He taught them to have a smile on their face and a good outlook on life.

In keeping with Philip’s wishes cremation has taken place.

A Private Service will be held at a later date.
