CHILDS, Philip Harry Routley
Philip Harry Routley CHILDS died peacefully, surrounded by his family, at Kingston General Hospital on July 24, at the age of 83. Born in Yeovil, Somerset from a long line of west-countrymen, he found himself at 14 on the south coast of England in 1940 with a vintage Ross rifle to fend off the Germans. Between 17 and 19, better equipped, he saw action as a subaltern with 141 Royal Armoured Corps, (the Buffs) in North West Europe. Retrained for Japan, in August 1945 he was redirected to the Middle East and seconded to the Arab Legion, a posting which gave him a life-long affection for the Arab people, particularly the Bedouin. With life in postwar England holding little attraction, he emigrated to Canada and by mid 1948 received his third commission, as an officer of the Lord Strathcona's Horse, leading him in the following years to locations as diverse as Staff College, Vietnam with the International Control Commission, the United States and Ghana. On retirement in the mid 1970s he became a law student, exchanging a crew cut for longer hair and a beard and acquiring new Friends only slightly older and cooler than his children. A small town law practice in Kemptville preceded a further career founding the legal division of the Auditor General's Office of Canada. A final retirement opened a very happy period on Sand Lake welcoming birds, beasts, Friends and family. Beyond his life long knack for finding himself in the world's hot spots, Philip was a loving husband and father, a genial host and bon vivant, an enthusiastic traveler, an avid reader, a mechanical wizard, and an accomplished woodworker; capable of fixing a washing machine while debating world history or quoting obscure poets, practical in small things and unbendably principled and idealistic in larger ones. He believed very strongly in justice and was convinced that finding truth was the surest route to achieve it. He is survived by his beloved wife of 56 years, Eileen, his children Peter (Maureen McEVOY,) Andrew (Pauline ANDERSON,) Caroline (Babis MAGOULAS) and Michael (Danielle ST- VINCENT,) his 7 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. A remembrance and celebration of his life, followed by a reception, will be held at Sand Lake: 130 Powell Bay Road, Elgin, Ontario, at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 16. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
