Kenneth Phillipson

After suffering 4 long years with dementia, I lost the love of my life on Sunday, February 12, 2017. The staff at Acacia Ty Mawr provided Ken with the most loving care during his stay there.

Ken was born in Vancouver, BC. and spent many happy years as a youth in the Yukon Territories. He served his country with the Royal Canadian Navy and was a longtime employee of Canada Post.

Ken is survived by his loving wife Barbara of 62 years, his daughters; Wendy, Jennifer and Ellen, Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 pm on March 11, 2017 at HW Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road Duncan, BC.

In lieu of flowers donations in Ken’s memory may be made to Wild ARC or Alzheimer’s of BC.
