Gerald, sorry for your loss brother. Uncle Phil was the man who taught me how to golf. A love affair with a game I have to this day. If I went to the property in Ahmic Harbour, I would still be able to find golf balls all over the bush. He always had time for his annoying little nephew, and I will never forget that. I forgot that he was a Leaf fan like grandma, we probably could have discussed that further and maybe converted him to the Bruins. On behalf of my wife Shaunna, kids Melanie and Lance, we are truely sorry for your loss. I will never forget him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.-Eric & Sandra Johnston

Phil was a good co-worker,a great friend and golfing buddy. He will be missed greatly.-Larry Piddington
Gerald, I am so sorry for your loss. Going to Grandma and Grandpa's in the Harbour was always one of my favourite things to do. And a big part of that was getting to see Uncle Phil. I was a very shy kid, and he was always kind and quiet, which was perfect. I have many happy memories of those simpler times. We have lost a truly gentle soul. Take care of yourself.-Pam Newell
