    Our Condolences on Dan’s passing. He was a neighbor on Templeton Cres. He would always stop by on his walks and chat. We still have the postcards and spoons from his trips to Denmark he would send us.

    Mr Phillips was more than just a next door neighbour to our family; he was a kind and loving man. I will miss our weekly phone calls, lunch dates and most of all , our great chats about his life. I was always in awe of his great memory as he told us his stories of the orphanage , going to sea at a very early age and the ports that he stopped in and ran from lol. Rest easy Mr Phillips, you will be greatly missed 💔

  3. Hello Andrew and family I’d like to express my deepest sympathy with the passing of Dan worked with Dan at the air separation plant on vital street for a lot of years from 1980 until Dan retired. I have a lot of fond memories of Dan.
    All the best Andrew

    I enjoyed Mr. Phillips visits at my office…. many stories of his time at sea, and he also loved to talk about his much loved family. He had many adventures in his life…a life well lived. Sorry for your loss.

  5. I met Dan in 2015 and we became friends right away because he was such a caring man and we had many wonderful conversations about his life. I was fascinated in the story’s he told me about his life at the orphanage, as a teenager waiting at the shore for the navy ships to come in so he could apply as a seaman, meeting his lovely wife and so much more. I would visit him for tea or we would chat many times at my office. Unfortunately I lost touch with Dan after I visited him at the hospital in 2017 but I have never forgotten him. Dan left a great impression on me and I will hold him in my heart for many years to come.
    My condolences to the family.
