Alvin Glenn Phillips
1945 ~ 2023
With great sadness we announce that Alvin Phillips passed away on Sunday December 31, 2023.
He is survived by his brothers, Barry Wayne, James Dale and Vernon Rae, his sister-in-law, Sally Anne Phillips, two nephews, three nieces and several cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, James Clifford and Ruby May.
Alvin had a great sense of humor and personality and lived a good life with many friends. He was fond of the color red and he owned a red Oldsmobile, a red motorcycle and a red boat in his early years. To the chagrin of his parents, he took flying lessons and used to buzz their house during his practice runs in the evenings. In these early years, he was known as an Evel Knievel. He joined Manitoba Hydro in July 1964 and after four years in construction he spent the rest of his career at the Morden office and retired in January 2001. He loved his work and farming and he continued to farm the home farm on a part-time basis throughout his career with Manitoba Hydro and after retirement. He loved to fly and he spent many hours with his good friend, Don Pfrimmer flying around the country looking at crops. Alvin will be greatly missed.
A private family interment will be held at a later date at the Fairview Cemetery in Roland.
