Born on September 2, 1926, to the late Harry Crowson Ashdown and Grace Langlois Ashdown. Philip was predeceased by his wife Allison Margaret Ashdown and his brother James Ashdown. He is survived by his children, Barbara (John), Joan (Mark), Lorraine (Andrew) and Philip (Andrea), his grandchildren, Norah, Madeline, Alexandra, Dylan, David, Garcia, Allison, Antonia and Zoë. He was a lifetime resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Philip had a generous heart and an authentic concern for the people he surrounded himself with. He loved his family dearly and they will certainly miss him for many years to come. His infectious laughter, tender heart and wisdom will always echo in his loved ones hearts and minds. The family thanks Giovanni Maalihan and Alvin Alba and their team for their extraordinary attentive and loving care of our father over the past two years. Their kindness and loving nature was the foundation of our circle of care.

  • Thinking of you all as you celebrate your Dad's life. Perhaps the SSS is now back in session! Love, Pam - Posted by: Pam Proctor (Family friend ) on: Aug 31, 2018

  • I ate my supper with Phil during his latter seven years. We sat the Men's Table at the Wellington. I will always remember Phil's humor and the many conversations we had, in which we discussed the news of the day and solved the world's problems. Phil was the president of the Resident's Council at the Wellington, before I was, and he provided me with many tips on how to run the Council. He was always a gentleman and will be remembered fondly by his family and friends both at the Wellington and elsewhere. - Posted by: W.D.(Bud) Christie (Freind and fellow resident of the Wellington) on: Aug 31, 2018

  • I remember your Dad's laugh on our many SSS outings and get togethers. I can only think that the rest of the gang is waiting around a cloud ready to get into discussion. Thinking of the family in your time of grief. Wish I could be there in person, but will be thinking of you. - Posted by: Janis McKeag (Friend) on: Aug 28, 2018
