E. Philip Weiss
With great sadness we announce Philip’s peaceful passing on December 27, 2017.
Philip was born in Montreal on April 19, 1924 and married his beloved Nancy (pre-deceased in 2011), a beautiful war bride he met as a Canadian soldier during the liberation of the Netherlands at the end of the Second World War.
Philip will be dearly missed by his four sons Paul (Carolyn), Stephen (Carolyn), Karl (Adelle) and Ben, as well as by his many loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Philip pursued his passion as an artist for over eight decades, working alongside many of Canada’s most renowned artists; designing nine of Canada’s postage stamps; serving the Canadian Government for over three decades with the Exhibition Commission and, later, with the National Design Council; and continuing to paint and sketch prolifically up until this past year with several hundred of his works now preserved in Canada’s National Archives.
In this past year Philip’s life and achievements were profiled in the Ottawa Citizen’s “Canada 150” series and this past month Philip was honoured as a Canada 150 Nepean-Carleton “Inspiration Award” recipient for his outstanding advocacy and philanthropy while a resident these past 11 years at the Ottawa’s Carleton Lodge Long Term Care Home (to the staff and volunteers of which our family is very grateful for the loving care and attention they provided to both Philip and Nancy for so many years).
Members of the public are welcome to join us for a simple celebration of Philip’s life in the chapel of Carleton Lodge at 55 Lodge Road beginning at 3:00 p.m. on January 9, 2018. In memory, donations to the Carleton Lodge Ladies’ Auxiliary (same address) would be greatly appreciated.
