Philip Henry Supernak
November 28, 1963 – February 14, 2014
(50 Years Old)
It is with great sadness that we accepted Phil’s passing from the physical world this past Friday afternoon. Phil graduated from NDSS, Class of 1982, was born and raised in Nanaimo and recently celebrated his 50th Birthday with family and friends. It was that same family at his side at the time of his quiet, peaceful passing.
Phil will be remembered as a passionate hockey fan, proud supporter of the Vancouver Canucks & Nanaimo Clippers, and most admirably a man whose heart was the size of the ocean, especially when it came to family. Phil was pre-deceased by his brother-in-law, Terry; father, Jozef; brother, Frank; and mother, Stella; while being survived by his brothers, Art & Randy; sister, Teresa (Gary); nephews, Darcy & Cory and nieces, Kristina & Andrea.
We will miss him dearly, and invite anyone who called Phil their friend or knows the Supernak family to join us at 447 Wharton St on Saturday, February 22nd from 1-3 PM for a celebration of Phil’s life. Stories, laughs and positive energy are encouraged in lieu of flowers, or if you wish, a donation to the Diabetes Association of Canada, in Phil’s name.
We would also like to thank Dr. Zuccarro for his years of care for the Supernak family, as well as the amazing team in ICU at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for their outstanding care.
I hope you’ve got good seats up there,
I will sit next to you once again Phil,
until then ‘just drop the damn puck already.’
