Thank you to his palliative care doctor, (Dr.Ritter). Everyone gave both Philip and Debbie exceptional care, and made it possible for Philip to remain in his home.
Philip was born on February 8, 1958, in Amherst, to parents, Walter Vladiimir Boiduk and Marion Louise (Smith) Boiduk. He had six siblings, Michael, James,(Janice), Bruce, Susan, Stephen,(Julie) and Paul (Colleen). The early years brought Philip and his brother Bruce to British Columbia where they lived and worked in the lumber trade.
In their free time they explored the mountains and fished the streams and lakes of beautiful British Columbia. Philip was a gifted carpenter, much of his work is found throughout Cumberland County. Philip built his own country home in Hastings, where he and Debbie enjoyed their hummingbirds and country life. Philips humour and big dimples were his signature, he loved teasing the people, which Debbie can attest to! He lived life with integrity, honesty and adventure. Philip and Debbie travelled to many destinations, Mexico, Caribbean, Florida and Vancouver, B.C., to visit the girls and their families.
Philip and Debbie created a life in their Baddeck dream home, surrounded by nature and friendly people over looking St. Ann's Bay, keeping true to their spirits! Philip became a stepfather to Debbie's children, Erin and Renee; became a stepfather to Debbie's children, Erin and Renee; and step-grandfather (grampie) to four wonderful grandchildren. Philip loved his extended family and his grandchildren. May Philip find peace and comfort in Heaven and as Debbie said, "Philip is likely fly fishing already and I believe this is true. Peace and blessings, Philip, on your journey!
From your loving family! "Til we meet again!"
