It is with great sadness I announce the passing of my Dad, Philip P. P. Phelps, March 14th 2021, at the lake in Lowbanks, a place held dearly in his heart.
A much loved Father, brother and uncle. Dad leaves me behind – Kassidy his daughter and my partner Rico Braun. His fur baby Maddy. His first love, my mom Debbie Ragogna; his girlfriend Christine Bisson, Brothers; Dan, Bob, Jerry. Sisters; Pamela, Diane, Sue, Bonnie, Lyn and their spouses. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Lorne (1969) and Mary Ann Phelps (2020), brother Douglas (2020).
Living in Lowbanks most of his life, Phil joined the Army shortly after graduating Dunnville Secondary School. He always said the best part of the military was jumping out of airplanes. He took up Sheet Metal trade, working at Lancaster Group, for the last 36 years, in which he had the opportunity of traveling Canada. Phil spent 10 years volunteering with South Haldimand Station #11 Firehall, playing a major role in the trophy wins for their bike build in Haldimand Motors Great Tricycle Race. He had a natural way of commanding a room. His laughter, sense of humour and his wit, kept us all entertained. His family and his friends were an important part of his life, always willing to help where needed. Family celebrations, bonfires (which he was the King of), his Harley and quading were the simple joys of his life. I will miss you forever, love your little girl.
Visitation will be held at JW Hart Funeral Home, Dunnville (905)774-6335 on Saturday March 20, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and 6:00 to 8:00pm. Those wishing to attend must call to RSVP a time slot.
