It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Philip E. Myran aka “Papa” at the age of 84. Papa passed away peacefully at home with his wife Patti by his side. Papa is survived by his wife Patti, his son Greg (Shelly) and his granddaughter Jocelyn, to Papa she was “Wynona” (named by his sister Margaret), brother and sister in law Cheryl (Gary) and nephew Gord.
Papa has a great deal of family throughout Canada and his childhood home the Birdtail Sioux Nation, Manitoba. Papa was predeceased by his mother Mary Bhopa, Father Albert Myran and brothers, Jack, Kenny, Richard, and Ernest and survived by his sisters Margaret and Gladys and his daughters Sandra, Beverley, Pat, Christina, Debbee, Gail, and son Eddie plus many grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. Papa had the pleasure of being re-united with his oldest daughter Sandi and only son Eddie here in Kamloops. Papa also had the good fortune to be recently reunited in Kamloops with his daughters, Gail and Beverley and his grandsons, Robert and Isomeqhes and granddaughter Amanda. Papa is so thankful for the time he had to spend with family.
Papa enjoyed working hard for CP Rail for over 40 years, where he travelled the province making friends wherever he went, ask anyone in CP rail and they would know him affectionately as “Chief”. Throughout his life and retirement Papa enjoyed tending his gardens, decorating the house and yard especially for Christmas and Halloween. He loved his daily “Geezer Club” meetings with his buddies at North Hills Mall and especially loved to take Petal and past furry friends Fergie, Fancy, and Jazzy for walks, bikes rides, but especially tractor rides. He truly loved and enjoyed his family times and his home with as he affectionately called Patti, “My Wife”, taking “My Wife” to Blazer hockey games, taking “My Wife” to watch Greg play rugby, taking “My Wife” to watch “Wynona” (Jocelyn) play soccer.
Papa did not want to make a fuss or draw attention to himself, he only wished there not be a service and in lieu of flowers please donate to the Canadian Cancer Society. The family wants to give a sincere thank you to The Canadian Cancer Clinic, Pratt’s Pharmacy, and Dr. Lee Jonat. The family would also like to send a special thank you to Dr. Harold Stefanyk for his friendship, personal care, attention, and kindness.
