Phil and Tina traveled together with our OAT Group to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in March of this year. WE had adventures and challenges shared together. I am sad to here that Phil passed, yet happy that he had fulfilled on his dream travel to this lovely part of the world. Our mutual frined and fellow travler , Stephanie shared that was now in spirit. My condolances to Tim=na and the family, Phil was a handsome man and sweet person.

I am so sorry for the loss of Phil. I had the privilege of working for him over the past 26 years. He has always been a kind and respectful man. He loved showing me the videos that he made and narrated. I had many talks and laughs with him. He was such a adventurous and courageous man. I feel privileged to have known him.He will be truly missed by all who knew him. I am sure God has him in the palm of his hand.

From 1969 to 1982 I was Phil's canoeing partner on our expeditions on northern Canada's wild rivers. The Phil I'll remember, is the Phil from those journeys.

We were a team, a very good team, making life and death decisions about running rapids. There was peril, too, on the big lakes in the Northwest Territories, Canada's arctic and subarctic region, as we struggled against strong headwinds and high waves. We had to use good judgment, work together, react quickly, and stay
