Philip John Tamboline

FEB. 10, 1938 – AUG. 17, 2014

IN LOVING MEMORY – It is with our deepest sadness that our husband, father and grandpa, Philip John Tamboline passed away at Nanaimo Hospital Sunday, August 17th after a long and courageous battle with several health complications.

Phil leaves behind his loving wife Marilyn, sons – Trevor (Katrina), Grant (Tina), Todd (Dawn), grandchildren – Sam, Alli, Jessi, Mikayla, Abi, Nicholas, Jacob and many relatives and friends.

Phil was a Commercial Salmon Fisherman for 25 years and worked for BC Ferries for 23 years. He was a gentle soul and loved by all.

The family is so very grateful for all those that helped take care of Phil and called with their love and concern. A special thank you to Dr. Robert Crichton, Maureen Gix and the rest of the team at Home Nursing Support, and the Canadian Red Cross. Phil requested a service not be held. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that donations be made to the Canadian Red Cross.
