PHILIP ANDREW FAULKNER

September 14, 1988 – January 20, 2024

With broken hearts, we are saddened to announce that Philip has passed away at the young age of 35. 


He is survived by his daughter Madeline; mother Cynthia; brother Steven; nephew Eric; and countless aunts, uncles, and cousins who all loved him deeply. 


Philip was predeceased by his father Wayne; grandparents, Dennis and Elva Faulkner, James and Edith Griffith; aunts, Mary Esther and Nancy Griffith; special friends, Adam, AJ, Ryan, and Cassie Sky (mother of Madeline). Philip was fortunate to have the love of great-grandparents in his early years. 


Philip loved his daughter, family, his cats, reading, and working construction. While working out west, he would fly home every three weeks to spend time with his daughter, which she cherished. 


He was very close with his brother, not only in age, but interests as well. As they both grew up and had families, they did not spend as much time together but when they did, it was like no time had passed at all. 


After overcoming addiction in 2016, Philip’s focus was providing Madeline with a stable, loving home. He encouraged her love of learning, including languages, piano, and guitar. 


Philip went back to school in 2018, graduating with honours in 2019, receiving three awards for highest marks. He started a fully funded two-year program at RRCC in 2020. Unfortunately, COVID came and it was not the experience he needed. 


Eventually, addition took hold again and the downward slope began, despite seeking treatment again, it was not effective. 


We will always remember Philip as the happy, smart, caring, loving person he was; this is genuinely who he was. He never lost his moral compass and kindness for others.


Cremation has taken place. Family and friends are invited to share memories celebrating Philip at 1:30-4:00pm on Sunday, March 3 at Riverview Community Centre. 


Philip's family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by watching the photo-biography above. Please, also consider sharing your own photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.

Very sad to hear , although I only remember old days as I haven’t seen Phil since we were young but I remember playing games and having Christmas mornings together as kids the arrangement of pictures selected in the photo biography brings me back to that time like it was yesterday.

My thoughts and prayers are with you
