Philip Ray Tock, passed away at Bluewater Health Sarnia on the morning of Jan 29th 2021. He will be greatly missed by his wife Nancy, sons Craig and Ian, daughter-in-law Kathryn, and beloved pets Dalilah, Emily, and Oliver.
Born April 30th, 1949 in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, England; he was the son of Ronald and Kathleen Tock. Phil and Nancy first met as children, and would later marry before immigrating to Sarnia, Ontario, Canada in 1974. Here, Phil continued work as a Chemical Engineer; a profession to which he would dedicate the next 45 years. Through his vocation, and membership in the Sarnia-Lambton Golden K, he would foster many valued friendships.
Phil’s truest dedication however was to his family. Kind and generous in nature, always reliable, always available, he was a patient, tolerant, and loving husband and father. He enjoyed a good John Wayne or James Bond movie, a well-played football (soccer) match on TV, and getting together with good friends over breakfast or at his favourite local coffee shop. Through all of life’s joys, rewards, and challenges Phil never lost his sense of humour; the subtle smirk that would start in the corner of his mouth and slowly spread over his face before breaking into an unmistakable grin. He will be deeply missed, always loved, and never forgotten.
