We Remember


March 22, 1961 — July 12, 2022

On July 12, 2022, Phil peacefully went to be with the Lord at age 61, while at the Kelowna Hospice House. He was surrounded by family and loved ones.

Phil was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario on March 22, 1961. After graduating from secondary school, he worked in the culinary field. He worked for Aramark in the kitchen of the Bombardier plant in Thunder Bay; at the Hydro Plant in Thunder Bay; as a baker at Safeway in Thunder Bay; and at Bun’s Master. He also joined up with his brother David and worked as the head cook in his Scandinavian restaurant. After his family moved to Kelowna, BC, he followed them and worked in the kitchen at the Manhattan Restaurant in Prospera Place. Lastly, he worked in the kitchen at the White Spot Restaurant also in Kelowna.

Philip was liked by all and was known for his sense of humour and always being happy. He had the kindest soul and a loving smile. He shared his love and laughter with so many. In his earlier years, he played Santa for many families at Christmas; bringing joy and laughter to so many.

Phil is survived by his wife, Belen Fredericks of Kelowna, BC, they just celebrated 8 years of marriage together; his mother Violet Kraft; brothers David (Linda), Paul Rauhala (Kirsten); nieces Silken, Chelsea; and nephews Nils, Devin.

    I am so sorry and I want all of you to know what a good friend he was to me.
    No matter what was going on Phil was always the first person to volonteer his time. Phil was always very kind hearted.

    To all of the family Iwant you all to know what a privelage it was to call him my freind.
    My deepest prayers go out to you all
