Remembering Brother Phil Healey

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Philip Norman Healey, on February 1st, 2024, in Kingston, Ontario, in his 79th year.

Philip was born in Grand Falls – Windsor, Newfoundland to Philip and Beatrice Healey on August 18th, 1944. He married his beautiful wife, Madeline (Chow) Healey in 1968 and they moved to Ontario to raise their family. Philip was an Electrical Engineering Technologist and Supervisor for the Ministry of Transportation for 29 years while living and serving in the Milton community.

Philip enjoyed spending his time on long walks and took great pride in special family moments at their cottage, Healey’s Crossing. He was a notorious jokester who lovingly teased his friends and family while sharing his wisdom, philosophical insights, and Newfoundland anecdotes. It was evident that his pride and joy was his wife and the wonderful family that they created together.

Philip is survived by his wife, Madeline (Chow) Healey, his three sons Philip (Michelle), Shawn (Heather), and Christopher (Amy). Cherished Poppy to grandchildren Kyle, Madeline, Tyler, Kevin, Mya, and Lewis. Beloved brother to Roy, Fred (deceased), Dennis, Terry, David, Theresa, and Edward. A favourite son and brother-in-law to the Chow family and cherished Uncle to many nieces and nephews. Philip was a good friend to many, willing to strike up a conversation with a neighbour or lend a helping hand (at a moment’s notice) to anyone in need.

A celebration of Philip’s life will take place in the summer. Donations can be made in honour of Philip to Queen’s University Cancer Research Institute or to Saint Vincent de Paul Society (Kingston).
