MacLeod,Philip

In loving memory of Phil MacLeod, 77 years, who passed away at Maison McCullouch hospice on January 27, 2019. Beloved husband of Effie (predeceased 2001). Loving father of Lorna (Craig Ayers) and Gordon (Trish). Cherished Grandfather of Evan. Predeceased by his parents Melville and Mary and siblings Jim and Linda. Survived by his sisters Katherine (Cecil) and Elinor. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Born in Montague, Prince Edward Island, Phil moved to Levack in his early twenties. He worked briefly at INCO before embarking on a lifelong devotion to serving the community of Onaping Falls as owner and operator of P. MacLeod Bus lines. Adored by generations of students, teachers, and parents, Phil was a kind and generous soul who was known for his smile and positive attitude. Phil placed a high value on education and supported the local schools with student awards and bursaries. He had a love for sports and was co-owner of the Onaping Falls Huskies Junior A hockey team in which he shared many road trips across the north with coaches, hockey players and families. Phil enjoyed the outdoors especially fishing and camping. He was a devoted member of the Legion and supporter of our veterans. He also volunteered with the Canadian Cancer Society, Red Cross and worked on various committees. Above all else, Phil loved his community of Onaping Falls and the people who live there. Phil will be remembered by everyone who met him for his kindness, generosity and sweet nature. The family is grateful for all the friends as well as the outreach care teams who helped keep Phil at home in the community he loved so dearly. We wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Pearce and the medical staff who provided care to Phil over the last couple of years. At Phil’s request, there will be no visitation or service. A gathering will be held at the Onaping Falls Legion on February 2nd, 2019 from 1pm to 4pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to Canadian Cancer Society Wheels of Hope program or The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 503 would be appreciated.

1 Condolence

  1. Our condolences on the passing of your father Lorna and Gordon. He would often stop to visit us on his annual visit back to the Island to visit family. I drove bus for Phil when I was living in Levack. Although we can’t be with you tomorrow at his Celebration of Life at the legion, we will have a wee dram in his honour. May Phil be in heaven a half hour before he knows he is gone.
