Phil Hopley

One in a million, kind, thoughtful, considerate, genuine. These are just some of the words used in the past few days to describe Phil.

His quick wit, intelligence and dry sense of humour were uniquely coupled with a quiet reserve that left an impression on all who met him. He didn’t enter your life with a fanfare; rather he burrowed quietly into your soul and became part of you.

He was a beloved son, brother, friend and husband who will be forever loved and missed.
