We Remember

WATKINS, Phillip Roy

December 20, 1950 — December 10, 2022

Phillip Watkins passed away on December 10, 2022, at the age of 71,  and is now with his daughter.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Lorraine; son Ryan; sister Yvonne McMilian (Ian McPhee); brothers Kirk Watkins and Carl Johnson; son-in-law Robin Anheler; four brothers-in-law; and numerous nephews and nieces.  He was predeceased by his daughter Nadine (d. 2005); sister Alva Lebrie; and his parents Red and Doreen Watkins.

Being the life of the party and a natural comedian, Phillip loved to entertain.  He was a geat dancer and played guitar, favouring country music and tunes from the 1950s.  He was also a romantic and enjoyed surprising his “Loulou”.

Camping was a favourite pastime, and horseshoe tournaments were always a highlight.

Phillip will be dearly missed.

A Celebration of LIfe will follow in the summer of 2023.

in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Agency – Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior.
