HERRING, Phillip Sidney
Phillip Sidney Herring was born in Castor, Alberta on November 9, 1919. Phil passed away peacefully June 8, 2007, at Burnaby Hospital, age 87, surrounded by his loving family. Survived by his wife of 64 years, Marion, his children, Alan (Colleen,) Jane KOBERSTEIN (Bill), Ross (Betsy), Ian (Diana) and his grandchildren Mark, Elizabeth, Sonya, Eva, Laura, Sarah and Liam. His early life was typical of prairie hardships, travelling across open flatlands by horse to attend the one-room Netherby School during the harsh and dusty depression. He made extra money by hunting badgers and gophers. At age 17 he graduated from Hanna High School and moved to the west coast to attend University of British Columbia. At the train platform, he asked his father what he should study, and the reply was simply, 'engineering'. World War 2 interrupted Phillip's engineering studies. He enlisted in 1939, serving as Lieutenant, with the 6th Field Company, Royal Canadian Engineers, in North Africa and Italy. His job as a reconnaissance officer was to go ahead of the Allied troops to plan their advance. December 1943, he was one of the first Canadians to enter the town of Ortona, Italy to assess the route - after which the Allied forces entered. Defended by elite German paratroopers, the Canadians were subjected to a fierce battle in which 1,374 of his colleagues died. After the war he graduated from University of British Columbia in Civil Engineering, class of 1947. His career in municipal engineering began in Ocean Falls, British Columbia. In 1952, with his wife, and their first 2 children, he moved to Kamloops to become their City Engineer. Five years later, they moved to Burnaby where he settled down to raise his growing family. He retired in 1984, after 28 years as Assistant City Engineer for Vancouver. Phil will be remembered as the consummate, practical-minded engineer. Phil was an avid rock hound, world traveller, gardener, award-winning wine maker and a long time member of the Burnaby Lapidary Club and the South Burnaby Garden Club. He had a particularly deep passion for his property in Point Roberts, which has been in the family for 95 years. Family meant everything to him. He will be missed. The family wishes to thank Burnaby Hospital Palliative Care Unit, Veterans Affairs and Fraser Health Authority for their care and support. Donations can be made to the Last Post Fund British Columbia Branch, Surrey, British Columbia (604) 572-3242. A celebration of Phillip's life will be held at West Burnaby United Church 6050 Sussex Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia, on Friday, June 15 at 1 p.m.
