Sandy (Robert, Bob) Phillips

Happy to be on a team with Sandy's brother, Peter, and friends. Those that knew Sandy miss watching and doing outrageous things with him but everytime I think of those times, it brings a smile to my face. Thank you, my friend, for all you were for me.

My Story

23 May 2024

I am a team member of a group in memory of Sandy Phillips. He died at age 58 from complications due to throat cancer. Among other things, he liked to ride his bicycle.

In high school, we bicycled from Regina to Victoria one summer. One highlight was picking cherries in the Okanagan for 6 cents per pound. We ate a lot of the profits. We made $1 per hour. We weren't paid until all the cherries were picked from the top of the tree. By the end of the day, we were shaking the tree hoping the cherries would disappear.

The next summer, we bicycled from Regina to St. John's, NL with fellow team members Bob Loney and Tom Davis. One highlight was camping on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The RCMP were kind enough to provide a wake up call at 6am to send us on our way before everyone knew we were there.

Thank you, Sandy, for the many adventures and memories. They wouldn't have been the same without you. We all think of you as we bicycle down the road to the next adventure.
