<div itemprop="description">After a very accomplished life and a struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, our husband, father, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away peacefully just days before his 91st birthday. He will be remembered by his wife of 45 years, Alice (nee Schluter), daughters Phyllis (Pierre), Jacqueline (James), and sons Wesley (Louisa), Stephen (Carolyn), Peter (Carole-Anne), and Denton (Roslyn). His brother Kenneth (Shirley) predeceased him. Phil was a family man and was blessed with grandchildren ranging in age from one to 42, namely: Justin, Richard, Brigitte (Scott), Robert (Bailey), Melissa (Michael), Lindsay, Brandon, Georgia, Charlotte, Rebecca, Isabella, Madeleine, Anabelle, George, Louis, Raven, Stella Blaise, Jessa, Hunter and great-grandchildren Sophie and Margo. <br> <br>Phil was born in Montreal on November 12, 1929 to parents George Reed and Phyllis Cole. When he was thirteen, The Monitor wrote an article about him entitled, “A Man of Tomorrow.” Phil delivered the paper to 113 homes and earned $1.13 every week. “Phil went to work with a vengeance” and the profits of his paper route went into the purchase of war savings stamps. <br> <br>Phil maintained that work ethic all his life. In the early fifties, he built his own house in Cote St. Luc, and later helped his brother build his house next door. He worked for 40 years at Northern Electric (Nortel), and then went into business with his two sons to establish PTI Cables Inc. Over the years he enjoyed social gatherings, skiing, golf, Cote St. Luc BBQ, music, cleaning his garage, and helping others. He also went on many fine trips but always went back to work the very next day! <br> <br>We would like to extend our thanks to the caregivers on the fourth floor of the Sunrise in Dollard-des-Ormeaux. Because of Covid-19, Phil will not get the funeral he deserves, but he would smile if you would raise a glass and toast him. In lieu of flowers or donations, think about paying it forward and do something kind for someone. <br> <br>PLEASE NOTE: Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the family understands that not everyone will be comfortable attending the funeral service. Visitations will be limited to 25 family members only with NO rotation possible (with required masks and social distancing). <br> <br>I’ll be loving you, always <br>With a love that’s true, always <br>Not for just an hour <br>Not for just a day <br>Not for just a year <br>But always. <br> <br> <br></div>
