Williams, Phillip Nicholas

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.

  5. Kukwstsetsemc Phillip for being you, you always put other people before you especially your grandparents. I love that about him, by watching him he always knew what to do. I wished you could’ve found someone who was true to you, love these days is so hard to find ☹️ I will miss you but will let you go so you are not wondering around prayers to Phillip’s daughter and his family. With love and prayers at this difficult time every one be safe .

  6. Tonight is quiet here and it reminds me of the many, many times you’d call and say “hey Mom – did you eat?”or come watch a movie with me. We have so many memories, I knew your ups n downs you’d share. You grew up with strong skills and values from your grandparents influence! You missed gramma, your mom Thelma and bro Hat and others. Who would’ve known you begin your journey? I will miss you and your laughter immensely ! We will all miss you Phillip mom Joyce (as you called me)

    The memories you shared with us of stories of grams and Gramps picking berries&picking medicine,
    How you remembered you and I making organ grape juice

    Your laughter could be heard miles away especially laughing with family and teasing ..full of jokes.
    Your favorite word is: JUST KIIDDING

    MY FAVORITE MEMORY with you is
    Sitting outside uncle's house waiting for you to walk thru that path, it was "smoke break. "time

    Your door was always opend for anyone and everybody .. your meals was the bomb,
    Filling of love,smiles and laughter
    Going to miss going for ride with you meeting families after families.
    Hearing my phone ring hearing your voice "SURPRISE HI,AUNTY-MUM"

  8. My deepest and heartfelt sympathies for the loss of a fine young man. I always appreciated our conversations together. Phillip always had a smile on his face which was contagious.
    Phillip you will be missed, thank you for being my friend.

  9. Philip what can I say, every time I saw you, you were always busy like a busy bee. I was proud of you, you took care of your Elders. Never had to be asked twice for help. When people treated you bad you shrugged it off and said their jealous.
    My deepest condolences going out to Russell, Pete, who will miss him the most.

  10. My thoughts and prayers are with all,,I well miss you my friend but I well hold you close in my heart,r.i.p Phillip,safe in the arms of the lord,you have gained your wings

  11. Will always remember your laughter just a real harsh belly laugh. Everytime I would see you I would say ” hey Cesar Milan” the dog whisper. Lexy will miss chatting with as you as walk by our house.
    Will all miss you. Till we meet again cuz.

  12. I have known Philip when he was very young, always full of smiles, and he enjoyed showcasing any new things he done. His world changed dramatically when his key7e Vivian passed. She was his rock, his strength and Role Model. He was then scared his Sle7e Pete would leave. Philip will be missed and especially by me, as he would message me to ask to sing him a song, or he wanted to hear stories of his Key7e. RIP Philip, you now have your wings to fly with the Angels and look over your daughter ,
