Winnipeg; University of Manitoba, 1955; psychiatry. Died June 29, 2017, aged 86. Survived by his wife Evelyn, 3 children and 3 grandchildren. "After his residency Phil returned to Winnipeg in 1962 and started what would turn out to be 55 years of practice in child and adolescent psychiatry. His practice included roles at the University of Manitoba's Department of Psychiatry, as well as a large private practice. He eschewed sleep, instead seeing patients late into the night and sometimes in the wee hours of the morning. He impacted the lives of thousands of youth, with particular efforts in the lives of hundreds of indigenous youth. His dedication was not just to seeing patients but also to training future generations of psychiatrists. He contributed to the development of hundreds of psychiatrists, ultimately rising to the role of professor of psychiatry."
