Phil Armour

Phil Armour 2010

Phil - after the Isle of wight 2010 trip

Phil, who lived at The Bourne, passed away on Sunday 18th December, 2011 after a brave & courageous battle against cancer.
Only 55, Phil was a faithful friend and enthused everyone around him with his excitment of anything a bit technical – from bread-making, iPhones, iPatches (good sense of humour too) to classic scooters and cars.
Sometimes frustratingly for his friends, he was a perfectionist in everything he persued. He leaves a son Daniel and a lovely wife Clair.
The Funeral service will be held in Hampden Chapel Chiltern Crematorium (Amersham) on Monday 9th January 2012 at 1.15pm.
Family flowers only – Donations if desired to the Hospice of St Francis c/o Tadmans, Kings Langley –  or to any other outlet to St Francis – they are really wonderful.
