Passed away peacefully on the evening of Sunday, December 20, 2015 which was 66 years to the day he began dating his gorgeous wife Maureen (nee Bevan). Phil crossed his final finish line; he was an incredible cyclist, competitive sailor and windsurfer. Phil did everything 100 % with absolutely no regrets. He was a mentor and an inspiration whose qualities are clearly found in those whose lives he has touched. Loving father of Anne Tillman-Graham (Kevin), Lise Waller (Scott) and Sara Tillman Whittaker (Peter Wilenius). Cherished grandpa of Max and Essery-Anne Waller and of Olivia Whittaker. Survived by his sister Joy Alldritt. December 24, 2015 would have marked the 17th anniversary of Phil’s liver transplant, a gift that he treasured and respected immensely. A special thank you to all his friends and family who visited and supported him in the last month. Also a big thank you to the team of nurses and doctors at the Queensway Carleton Hospital, Floor A3 and ICU unit. A celebration of life will take place at the Britannia Yacht Club, 2777 Cassels St, Ottawa on Wednesday, January 6, 2015 at 2p.m. In lieu of flowers donations in Phil’s memory can be made to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, Canadian Organ Transplant Association or the Colin Blandy Memorial Fund for young sailors via the Britannia Yacht Club.
