Philip L. Williams, son of the late Charles Albert Sr. and Muriel (Cottrell) Williams passed unexpectedly at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Saint John, N.B. on Sunday May 14,2023 at the age of 69.

Philip enjoyed living by the water in Upper Mills, tinkering around in the yard or visiting with members of his little community. He was a fixer of all things, a jack of all trades. If you had frozen pipes, needed a window replaced, or a foundation poured, or even building a house, you'd call Phillip. He could also be found at the Busted Knuckle Garage with his friends Mike, Geno and Richard working on cars.

Philip was a talker, no matter where he was. He would always say "Do you know what? "and "Whatcha think of that?" and he would go on and on and on! But most of all he loved being a Grampy, to Dimitri and Winfield they were his pride and joy. He had a lot of friends and will be sadly missed.

His partner Jan cherishes the memories they had watching movies, going for drives and occasionally discussing if she was right or if he was. His stepdaughter Tammy knew she could rely on him when she needed his help.

He is survived by his partner, Jannet Murray, stepdaughter, Lisa Murray, two granddaughters, stepdaughter, Tammy Murray, two grandsons, Dimitri and Winfield. He is also survived by sisters- Beryl Brilliant of Calais Me., Jean Williams of St. Stephen, Dorthy McCombie of St. Stephen, Nancy Davenport of Woodstock N.B, Joyce Williams of St. George N.B., brothers, Harold of St. Stephen, Roy of Ottawa ON., Billy of St. George N.B, Richard of Elmsville, N.B.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by one sister, Ruth Hartford, three brothers, Donald, Charles Albert Jr. and Earl, his infant daughter, Rebecca Williams

A graveside service will be held at the Upper Mills Cemetery, Upper Mills, N.B. on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at 2 PM.
