March 12, 1981 – April 16, 2020,
at the age of 39 years:
Phillip was born to Thelma Martha Williams, March 12, 1981 in Creston BC. Phillip was premature born at 24 weeks weighing in at 2lbs 11oz. who would of figured. Phillip was later blessed with his sister Nadine and brother Peter Williams. They did reside in Squilax for a couple of years and then went into the care of grandparents Pete and Vivian. Unfortunately Thelma Williams died November 4, 2004 in the city of Vancouver.
Phillip was a very caring considerate and loving brother to those that knew him. His greatest achievement in his life was the birth of his daughter Ashley, what a proud papa.
Phillip struggled with addiction, his struggle was real he did go to treatment to help himself. In 2015 he was in Kelowna at Freedoms Door. I never seen him more happy, I would go and visit with him go for Christmas dinner with him as he chose to stay in residence. Always cheerful and of course we all know what a great cook he was. The staff were happy when Phillip would cook for them, all about Bannock….oh he spoiled them. Phillip was always supporting community and family.
We are going to miss Phillip. He knew that his lifestyle was not what he wanted, he was wanting to make some healthy changes just never quite made it. He did enjoy his time with his grandpa. Now is our time to make sure we are here to support Russell in his continued journey of caring for his dad.
My heart breaks when I look back and see the hurt and pain of death for this family. I pray for the family and community to start your healing, it is up to each one of us as individuals to make a difference for our families. I will continue to support Russell and Pete, Nadine and Peter in your journey of life.
Sobriety is just a start but it works.
Keep Phillip in your prayers and the rest of his family and community.
