DUANE PHILLIP: Beloved son of Mona Gair, left us too soon at the age of 47 on August 24, 2013 in Olalla, BC. Duane was born in Comox, BC on April 6, 1966. He spent his life enjoying the outdoors with a great love of life. He was a “driver extraordinaire” in both his personal and professional life. From building Chevy cars and trucks and his Peterbuilt to driving the same with the same natural born ability. His love of nature and the beauty of the world around him led him to enjoy and spend his time exploring it in his cars, trucks, quads and 4×4’s as well as he never missed an opportunity to share his experience with all those around him. Duane is survived by his daughter Sienna of Kaleden, BC; mother Mona Gair (Neil) of Olalla, BC; brother Raymond Bevz (Terry) of OK Falls, BC; sister Shelley Bevz (Mario) of Prince George, BC, and sister Tanya Bevz of Spillimacheen, BC. Duane will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and remaining family and close friends. A Memorial service was held Saturday, August 31, 2013 followed by interment at Marsel Family Cemetary, Hwy 3, Olalla.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution may be made to The United Way in Duane’s name.
