William Jack Phillips
September 15 1938 – July 2, 2016
(#2 on the program, #1 in your heart)
Jack Phillips passed away peacefully with his children at his side after a short battle with cancer. Jack was born in Rossland, B.C. and leaves to mourn his children, Linda (Dennis) Watson, Donald, and Dave, all of Biggar, Sask. and his step-children, Sandy (Jay) Dowling, Michael (Jackie), and Brent (Kim) McLean; his brother, Ron (Dolly) of Delta, B.C., 11 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jack was born in Rossland, B.C. and grew up in Vancouver. He spent his youth playing lacrosse and hockey. At the age of 15, he left home to play with the Regina Pats and the Saskatoon Jr. Quakers in the WJHL and later the Saskatoon Sr. Quakers in the WHL. In 1963 he was signed as an import with the Biggar Nationals hockey club and hired on CNR to begin a lifelong career with the railroad.
In 1968, Jack gathered a few lacrosse sticks and introduced Biggar to the game of lacrosse. It didn’t take long before Biggar was put on the map with a champion lacrosse team.
In 1995, Jack was named as a lifetime member of the Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association. In 1978, Jack returned to the B.C. coast and continued his railroad career. His spare time was spent playing oldtimers hockey, golfing and camping. Once retired, Jack took time to travel to many places, and spend more quality time with his family.
A memorial BBQ is planned for Thursday, (TODAY) July 28 from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. at 412 - 6th Ave East, Biggar. BYOB and a chair to enjoy a burger and remember Jack with us.
