March 29, 1954 – June 19, 2019
Philippe Aime Joseph Auger was born on March 29, 1954 in Edmonton, Alberta. At the age of 65 he passed away into the presence of his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on June 19, 2019 in Invermere, British Columbia.
Phil was born and raised in Edmonton, which is where he met and married Holly. They moved their young family to Brisco, BC in 1993. Music was his life. Phil started playing piano as a child and continued on loving to play, sing and compose songs as well. He was a man of many talents and a hard worker, pursuing several different occupations during his lifetime.
The one thing about Phil is that everyone was his friend. He was a people person, and no matter who you were, after you met him you were no longer a stranger. It was the conversations and relationships he had during his life that meant so much to him, and his love for others was undeniable. Because he touched so many with his friendship, he will be dearly missed.
Phil is survived by the love of his life, Holly, his children Vanessa (Karl), Bryan (Jen), Alanna (Everett) and Renata (Casey), his twelve grandchildren, Joshua, Shannah, Kate, Jesse, Daniel, Raine, Benjamin, Reneah, Jordan, Kiersten, Jaeden and Tennessee, and his six siblings, Gisele, Anita, Lucille, Yvette, Marc and Lise. Phil is predeceased by his parents Aime and Olive and his niece Caroline.
A “Celebration of Life” for Phil was held on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 1 pm at Steele Heights, Baptist Church, 5812 – 149 Ave, Edmonton, AB. There will also be another memorial held on Saturday, July 20, 1 pm at Valley Christian Assembly, 4814 Highway Drive, Windermere, BC.
