RICHARD ACTON PHILLIPS

October 19th 1916 – December 11th 2013.


Richard passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. Predeceased by his first wife Grace, grandsons Bobby and Scott, great-granddaughter Abygail. Survived by his loving wife Sandra, sons Bob (Linda), Richard and Michael (Toni), grandchildren Dean, Teresa (Yann), Stephen, Erik and Star, great-grandchildren Brandon, Brittany, Jarod, Isaac, Irene and Skye, numerous nieces and nephews. Dad was never one to sit idle. Always biking, hiking and choosing a path less traveled well into his nineties. The joy his grandchildren brought to him was always evident. Sadly missed but never forgotten his positive outlook will always be with us.

“Never give up!”


Celebration of life on December 28th at Holy Trinity Church 1319 Mills Road, North Saanich at 11am.
