Marcil, Philip Eugene


May 26, 1942 – October 31, 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Philip Eugene Marcil on Oct. 31, 2014 at Daysland Health Centre after a hard fought battle with cancer at the age of 72.  His family was by his side.

Philip is survived by his beloved wife, Genny; his three children, Lenore Marcil (Kevin Kirner), Geno (Aleia) Marcil and Anita (Bill) Keenan; his grandchildren, Mandee Marcil, Carmen Marcil and Jordan Kirner; his three brothers, Leo (Ellen), Paul (Dodie) and Cyrille (Margie) and their families; as well as numerous extended family members and good friends.

A celebration of Philip’s life will be held at the Alliance Hall at 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 6, followed by a light luncheon.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Daysland Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Foundation.

Philip, we will miss your strong spirit, your keen insight and your gentle humour.  You will live on in all of us that love you and never be forgotten.  Rest in Peace.

  • Cyrille, it is a very sad thing losing one of your siblings, and I am thinking of you and your whole family especially at this time as you work through the impact of someone you so cared about not being here anymore.
