Obituary of Philip Langevin

69, Halifax. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Dad who left this world peacefully in the arms of his wife and son on January 23, 2019 at the QEII Halifax Infirmary. Phil was born on June 20, 1949 in Belleville, Ontario to Leonard and Lucille (Morin) Langevin.

In Phil’s early years, he served in the Canadian Navy aboard the HMCS Bonaventure, and while at port in Halifax, he met his loving wife, Jean. He went on to work for CN Rail, and later, Via Rail where he continued until retirement. Phil had a presence that was larger than life. He was very witty, quick with a joke, and a great storyteller. He loved yard sales and had a huge flea market family who sought him out every Sunday for time in the chair next to him. Phil loved his wife, his family and his dog, Baby.

Phil will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Jean Langevin (McNeill); son, Peter (Darlene) Langevin; daughters, Lia (Darren) Hamm, Diane Langevin (Mike Smith); mother, Lucille Langevin (Morin); sisters, Muriel (Joe), Pauline, Jackie, Helene (Bill), Janet (Wayne); granddaughters, Casey, Sarah; grandson, Elijah; great-grandson, Trexton. He was predeceased by his father, Leonard Langevin, Tweed, ON.

Arrangements are under the care of J. Albert Walker Funeral Home (2005) Ltd. There will be a private family celebration of life on Thursday, January 31, 2019.

The family would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses and Care Providers at the IMCU, and everyone who touched our lives by caring so deeply for our Dad.
