On February 9, 2021, at home with his wife of 48 years, Louise; Phil quietly closed his eyes for his final rest. Born in Ottawa in 1932 and a Grimsby resident since 1948 he will be fondly remembered by everyone he knew, for his engaging manner and ever ready smile. In addition to Louise, he leaves behind his children: Karen Hatton (Garth), Micheal Belanger (predeceased), Linda Belanger, Sandy Belanger (Tom Smith), Chris Frostad (Susan), Scott Frostad (Katie), Geoff Frostad, and Colin Frostad (Lisa). Phil will also be greatly missed by his sister Lois Milne (Don, predeceased) his 16 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. As a local entrepreneur, Phil owned and operated over a dozen businesses in the Niagara region. From gas/service stations to restaurants to car washes, he turned engaging with the public into a passion and an art form. In retirement he enjoyed golf as a vehicle to cultivate a new audience of close friends and relationships that he cherished deeply. He would admit, however, that the game itself was merely an exercise in honing his skill at "handling disappointment". We love and remember his array of quips, and bits of wisdom and his knack of giving everyone a warm welcome! Cremation has taken place. If desired, memorial contributions to GBF Community Services or Trinity United Church in Grimsby would be sincerely appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to STONEHOUSE-WHITCOMB FUNERAL HOME, GRIMSBY, 905-945-2755.

Phil, you always saw the good in people and reminded us often how lucky we were to be living in the greatest country in the world! Your smile and input as we solved all the world’s problems at coffee every morning will be missed. To Louise and all of your family our thoughts are with you as you grieve for our friend. We loved him too. Marianne and “The Coffee Gang”
