<div itemprop="description">Phil passed away peacefully on March 21, 2016 at St. Paul&rsquo;s Hospital, Saskatoon, at the age of 87 with his family by his side. <br /> <br />Left to cherish Phil&rsquo;s memories: loving wife Mardy; daughter Debbie (Art) Spence; daughter Brenda (partner Stan Thompson); son Darren (Donna Keene) and their children Sean and Brianna; sisters-in-law: Evelyn Ochocki and Doreen Ochoski; nieces, nephews, and friends. <br /> <br />Phil was predeceased by his parents Nicholas and Josephine; step-mother Maria; 4 brothers: Joe, Tony, Frank, Stan; 3 sisters: Helen Osatchuk, Kay Melnyk, Anne Zuchek; sisters-in-law: Sarah Ochoski and Olga Ochoski; brothers-in-law: Paul Osatchuk, Bill Melnyk, and Lawrence Zuchek. <br /> <br />The youngest of 8 children, Phil was born and raised on the family homestead near Rosthern SK. Phil and Mardy enjoyed 60 wonderful years of marriage. Phil continually educated himself and strived to better provide for his family. He worked in the oil seismograph exploration field for Electronic Logging Velocity and Mobile Oil Co., then in refrigeration/air conditioning with Johnson Temperature Controls in Edmonton. Most memorably Phil worked in various positions with Potash Company of America in Saskatoon for 27 years from 1965 until his retirement in 1991. Phil was a gentle, kind, loving husband, father and grandfather. He enjoyed family vacations, camping, fishing, golfing, gatherings with family and friends, and travelling. The experience of building a cabin at Candle Lake in 1981 led to an interest in woodworking, which became his passion in retirement. He joined the Saskatchewan Woodworkers&rsquo; Guild to enhance his skills and learn different techniques. Phil developed incredible woodworking skills and all his creations will be cherished forever. <br /> <br />A Celebration of Phil&rsquo;s Life will be held on Saturday, April 23 at 2:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home (east on 8th St. first right past Briargate Rd). Interment to follow. In lieu of flowers donations in Phil&rsquo;s memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan or a charity of your choice. <br /> <br />The family thanks the staff at St. Paul&rsquo;s Hospital for their excellent care. Dr. A. Danilkewich, Dr. B. Larson and Dr. S. Harding are admired for their dedication and kindness as they treated Phil throughout the years. Arrangements entrusted to Wally Markewich. <br /></div>
