HAMILL, Philip (1929-2008)
Born in Dundalk, Ireland, Phil studied at University College Galway, where he met his beloved Nancy, with whom he would share the next 53 years. He immigrated to Canada in 1957, settling in Ottawa where he had a long and enjoyable career at the National Research Council. Phil was an accomplished scholar and scientist, yet he valued his family and Friends most of all. He will be remembered for his remarkable spirit, his unfaltering optimism and his extraordinary joy for living. Phil was the best of company - articulate, witty, wise, generous and so very kind. His pleasures included literature, tennis, art, onions, writing, whisky, a broad spectrum of music, scotch broth, theatre, wordplay, cooking and solving crossword puzzles with Nancy and son Philip. He lived every day as we all wish we could - fully, happily and thankfully. Phil will be hugely missed by his wife Nancy, sons Philip and Declan and daughter Mona, daughter-in-law Kathy HAMILL, son-in-law Doug CRUIKSHANK and granddaughters Ally Clare, Fiona and Genny. The family sincerely thanks Clareen PRABHU, Jane Dickey Morrell, Diane LUNDELL, Marjorie RIOPELLE, Adriana DE WAAL, Doris GARDNER, Marie ARMSTRONG, Dorothy and Charles MURPHY, Marjorie and Dick GRAHAM, Cy and Audrey BARRASS, Jo BRODIE and everyone else who has generously provided support and comfort. A family service was held on Tuesday, June 24, at the Beechwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, if you would like to make a memorial donation, please consider the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Sláinte, Phil. It has been a privilege to raise a glass with you. Grá go deo.
