Our much loved husband, son, brother, father, Papa, and friend died suddenly and unexpectedly Wednesday May 4, 2016. Phil was loved and cherished by his family in Guelph, the GTA, Montreal, Ottawa, and Vermont: parents Anne Marie Dollois and the late Daniel Dollois, sister Anne Marie Dollois and her husband Rick Robillard, sister Suzanne Dollois and her partner Jesse Marshall, stepmother Marijke Cordes-Dollois and partner Charlie Fichman, wife Tracy, children Marc Dollois and fiancé Emily Unal, and Michelle Dollois, stepchildren Doug Livingstone and his partner Carly Weatherall, Liz Livingstone, and Pat Livingstone and his wife Tiffany Livingstone. He was dearest Papa Phil to Brooklynn, Kahlen and Bella Livingstone, Mannix Au, and Cohen Livingstone, and treasured uncle to Jason Robillard and fiancé Chelsea Auclair, Jessie Robillard, Leila Dollois, Ryan Atkinson, James Atkinson, and Steven Atkinson, and wonderful friend to many. 

Phil worked in the energy industry, in consulting, and in finance. But his job was just a job. His world revolved around his family and his friends. He loved hiking, skiing, travelling, snorkeling. Since August 2010, his physical activity was curtailed by serious illnesses, but still he was always curious, always passionate about issues, reading, learning, talking, discussing, and sometimes even arguing. But he was always the kindest and most wonderful man. Words cannot describe the magnitude of our loss, but his unreserved, unconditional love will live in our hearts forever. 

Family and friends are invited to the Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Hart Chapel, 1099 Gordon St., Guelph, for a celebration of Philippe’s life on Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 2 – 5 p.m. with a time set aside for family and friends to speak at 3 p.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario or to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
