Phil always moved around a lot; Kitchener, Toronto, Sudbury, Guelph, Elora, Bentinck, London. He went to school in most of those places, but he spent his career in veterinary medicine in Guelph.

After earning his DVM and PhD in pathology/parasitology, he taught at the Vet College for a few years. He loved teaching!

He finished his career as a veterinary parasitologist for the Province of Ontario; a post lasting more than thirty years.

Phil went to Kensington Village nearly three years ago, starting in Independent Living, through Assisted Living then to Long Term Care just months ago. His care in all three levels was outstanding. He was even cajoled into physio. Imagine!

Dementia is a terrible illness.

Thank you Kim, Doris, KV Staff, Dr. Margrieta Edels and especially Dr. Andrew Whynot. Tracie from Kensington, you run a terrific place.
