Louis Philippe Gaudreault
May 9, 1924 – December 18, 2009
Phil passed away peacefully at Yucalta Lodge Friday morning with his family holding his hands. Phil was very dedicated to his family and his community, working at the
Elk Falls Mill and volunteering for many organizations through the years – the Handicap Association, Knights of Columbus and Hospice to name a few.
Phil was a builder. As a teenager, he built ships for the War before heading overseas to ?ght himself. Back home he built houses, sawmills and even a hydro electric
dam. After helping build an addition to the Elk Falls Mill in the sixties, he decided to stay to build a family and a community in Campbell River.
Phil will be missed by his wife Dorothy, his children Aileen, Neil and Maureen, his grand children, his brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and cousins and all their families and friends.
A special thanks to the amazing staff at Yucalta Lodge for the loving and digni? ed way they cared for Phil and our family for over a year and especially in the last days of his life.
A Memorial Service will be held for Phil on Saturday, January 23, 2010 at 2 PM at St. Patrick’s Church in Campbell River. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations in memory of Phil may be made to the Campbell River Food Bank Society, 1671 Petersen Road, Campbell River, B.C., V9W 3J7.
