“Flying Phil” St.Luke Official Memorial Fund

Help commemorate Phil!

This fund has been set up in coordination with a City of Parksville Advisory Committee that will guide and gather funds for a permanent memorial to Phil St.Luke.
Phil not only gave thousands of hours to local charity, walked thousands of kilometers around the region no matter the weather, and excelled in his special olympic pursuits- but most importantly he made many feel like we were all neighbours; giving a honk and wave to a familiar face.
A statue of Phil is for those of us left behind who want to keep his magic alive a while longer.
The committee is taking public input through the city online portal, getting quotes, communicating with the city on siting, and safeguarding donated funds for the project.
The details of the memorial project will be decided with the help of the public, the city council, and Phil’s family. The current goal is anticipated to cover the costs of a life-sized bronze statue.
**Any surplus funds will be donated to Phil’s favourite charities such as the Special Olympics, SPCA, SOS, and Parksville Food Bank drive.
Any particularly large donations should be made directly through Coastal Community Credit Union Parksville branch.
A separate city-funded community event to mark Phil's passing is planned for June 9th.
