4: JIBC class photo from 1980! After 33 years, we cannot possibly capture* the essence of your career in a few words. But William Shakespeare, 400 years dead, hit the nail on the head when he wrote, “Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.” Through all those years, with your wise and humble Phil-ishness, you brought perspective and laughter and a great measure of humanity to the oft stodgy bureaucracy of public service. For this, we will miss you greatly, you Phool. All the best to you in your retirement; your friends and colleagues at JIBC, Shelagh, Rob and friends *JIBC captured your image in your grad photo - your name should be Dorian Gray.

41: Dear Phil. Your day has come – time to reap the rewards of many years of public service and contribution to the pension plan. Although we have had less direct contact in recent years, I have always enjoyed our interactions and will miss you. Thank you for your support over the years, for your contributions to the organization and, most importantly, the youth we serve, and for your entertaining and good humour. I wish you and Helen many, many years of happiness in your retirement.

42: I first met Phil in about 1981 when we both attended update training for Family Court Counsellors. Phil introduced himself to the group by saying that he was there under protest because he didn't think POs should be doing this type of work. Little did I know that this plain-speaking, somewhat petulant fellow would go on to become an influential figure in both the provincial justice system and my own career, as Phil later became a valued colleague and, for a time, my supervisor. I won't chronicle Phil's achievements in the workplace (although I'm fairly certain there were some) because for me Phil's most memorable contributions through the years were his unique one-liners, a few examples of which follow: I once remarked to Phil that I noticed he was out of the office pretty sharply at 4:30 every day, to which he responded, “Damn right, if I want to do volunteer work, I'll go to the SPCA!” When talking about the Corrections exemplary service medal, Phil suggested that for him to be considered it would have to become an award for “adequate” service. While chairing a provincial policy meeting that he wanted to end so that he could catch a ferry, Phil commented to the person beside him that “if anyone asks another question I'm going to stick my pencil in their eye!” I could go on, but suffice to say you are one of a kind Phil and it's been a treat to work with you. All the very best. Doug Hillian Director of Practice, Central/North Island Vancouver Island Youth Justice Director Ministry of Children and Family Development
43: Dear Phil, despite my best efforts everyone always new you were the best and brightest Phil around.

44: Phil: All the best to you in your retirement as you definitely deserve it! Really enjoyed working with you when I was an action Youth Justice Consultant 10 years ago and always found you to be humorous and witty but at the same time, knowledgeable, responsible and reliable. A great co-worker and person...now it's time for you to go and relax!

45: From: Trish Shields, Subject: RE: Phil He's such a funny guy. I remember when he and Keith Barnard were up on this floor and Phil recounted a childhood story/nickname. It has a festive flair – apparently kids used to sing ‘Deck the halls with balls of Hawley’... You can share that, if you'd like. Bwahahahaha
46: November 2013 Dear Helen and Phil What wonderful news to learn that you are both retiring shortly. Though I know you both will be dearly missed. You both have had long and exemplary careers, conducted with great integrity, respect, good humour and competence. I have had the good fortune of coming into contact with you both. Helen, you gave Alan such a good start. He always felt treasured and challenged in your kindergarten class. Phil, we did not have many shared files, but when we did, it was always a great pleasure working along side you. Perhaps our paths will cross again. Maybe at some Cowichan Valley Holly Farm! Take good care, and have a happy healthy and well deserved retirement. Mona Herring.
