Phillip Palumbo was born on October 7, 1927 in Roseto Valfortore, Province of Foggia, Italy.
In 1951 he married his sweetheart Maria. In 1953 he and his sister in-law, Lucy, left for Canada and settled in Smithers. His wife Maria came soon after in 1956.
Phillip was employed by CN for 31 years, after which he ‘unhappily’ retired. After retirement he spent his time tending his garden and making wine.
Phillip is survived by his daughter Anna (Lee); granddaughter Vanessa; grandson Philip (Kat). He is sadly predeceased by his wife Mary, his brother Danny and his grandson Domenic.
We will cherish every memory and will miss you forever.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the family and friends who helped during this difficult time.
A Funeral Service was held in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on April 3rd. Philip was laid to rest beside his wife Maria in the Smithers Cemetery. Condolences may be made at www.raschraderfuneralhome.com.
