Without much warning, Phil Godon died on November 29, 2022. He enjoyed life up to the very end. Very deeply loved by his wife, Cathy, his daughter, Elizabeth, step-daughter, Grace (Josh) and grandchildren, Reily and Payton. He was important in the lives of Hubert David and Marianne and her children, too. He leaves behind Zeb, Rosie, Dino and Delilah – his much loved and spoiled pets, in addition to a large community of wildlife he cared for in his backyard.
Phil leaves behind his large and loving Godon clan of brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. He also leaves behind his second family, the Lyons, who loved him dearly. Finally, he leaves behind his Syrian family, who brought much love, light and friendship to him in the last few years.
Phil was a cherished member of his local community. He shared his talents, humour and giving heart through his volunteer work.
Professional arrangements for Phil are being made by Zohr Family Funeral Home, Killaloe. There was a community visitation on Tuesday, December 6th and a goodbye and blessing ceremony for immediate family and close friends at 11 am on Wednesday in the Zohr Family Chapel. As he wished, Phil was cremated and his ashes will be returned to the Bonnechere River he so loved, in 2023.
To honour Phil, please wear a mask as he was so careful to do. In honour of Phil’s spirit, please consider donations to the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund or Indspire.
