VEITCH Philip John

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - OBITUARIES -

Au­gust 17, 1962 - De­cem­ber 3, 2018

We are sad­dened by the pass­ing of Philip af­ter a brief ill­ness at his home in Philip­pines on De­cem­ber 3. Wait­ing to greet Phil in Heaven are his sis­ter, Lisa, par­ents Anita Be­langer (Mer­rill) and Char­lie Veitch, grand­par­ents Kennedy and Veitch, and mem­bers of his in-laws in the Ozon fam­ily. Phil leaves many, many loved ones mourn­ing his loss, es­pe­cially his two pre­cious sons who he adored and was so proud of, Brian and Gra­ham, and their mother, Joan, Marisol (Ris) Soledad, his partner in the Philip­pines who has al­ways been kind and lov­ing to Phil, es­pe­cially dur­ing his ill­ness. Also left to mourn are Phil’s brother, Charles, in Toronto, step-fa­ther, Mer­rill Be­langer (Judy) in Top­sail, many aunts, un­cles, and cousins in the Veitch and Kennedy fam­i­lies. Spe­cial friends miss­ing Phil are Cyril and Randy Collins, Mike Cor­co­ran, Ian Mercer, Pete Richards, and Al­bert White along with many col­leagues from Irv­ing and Can­ship-ug­land. Phil will also be for­ever missed by his good friends in the Philip­pines from the Panglao Mo­tor­cy­cle Club, es­pe­cially Ralf and Kenneth. Phil talked to and about these friends ev­ery day while he was in New­found­land ear­lier this year, and kept in close con­tact with these friends ev­ery day. They also helped care for Phil dur­ing his ill­ness and showed their un­con­di­tional love and friend­ship to­ward him. Phil had a soft spot for strays and his six dogs will surely miss him too, es­pe­cially Wes­ley and Wil­low. Fu­neral and burial will take place in the Philip­pines. A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at a later date in St. John’s hon­or­ing Phil’s mem­ory. Do­na­tions may be made in Philip’s mem­ory to the John Howard So­ci­ety, or any char­ity of choice.

May he for­ever rest in peace!
