It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Andrew Philip on June 12, 2023 in Fort St. John, B.C.
Andrew was born in Belleville, Ontario on November 1, 1960. His family moved to Yellowknife, NWT in his teenage years, where he made lifelong friendships.
Andrew will be dearly missed by anyone who was fortunate enough to have crossed paths with him in this life, whether it was in his youth, professional career, or the many friends he made along the way. Especially by those who loved him for the amazing person he was.
His infectious laugh will be in our heats forever. It was the best laugh in the world. His caring for others was selfless. He always seen the potential in people and would do his utmost to help them succeed.
Andrew was well known in Fort St. John and area in the Gas Compression business.
Andrew was often seen quietly fly fishing up and down the banks of the Peace River. It was a passion that gave him so much pleasure and joy. He was a true fisherman. Watching him fly fish was poetry in motion.
He was also an accomplished photographer whose pictures are the focal point on many walls.
He also had a special flair for music which was self-taught with his usual determination.
To honour Andrew’s wishes, there will not be a service. We can celebrate his life with our memories of which there will be many.
Until we meet again our friend………..
