Phillip Darbyshire

August 21, 1938 - May 4, 2012

Tribute

Phillip L. Darbyshire, 73, passed away May 4 with his loving wife, Marlene, at his side, at Mariposa Gardens in Osoyoos. Phillip was born Aug. 21, 1938, in Ridgedale, SK to parents Edgar and Nina Rose. In 1942 the family moved across the country to Salmon Arm, where Phillip lived most of his life before retiring to Oliver and then Osoyoos. He was predeceased by his parents and brothers John and George. He is survived by wife Marlene and twin sister Phyllis, as well as sisters Bernice and Betty, sons Ralf and Peter, grandchildren Ryan and Amanda, great-grandchildren Alden and Owen, and numerous nephews and nieces.
Phillip worked for many years as a truck driver, but his real passion was woodworking. He had his own shop and built much of the family”s furniture. He was a tireless worker who faced every challenge in life with strength, determination, endurance and faith in a better tomorrow. He was an inspiration to all those close to him and will continue to be an inspiration.
A memorial service will be held at 2:30 P.M. Friday May 11, 2012 at the Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Chapel in Oliver.
