Biographical history

Donald Eric Phillips was born June 30, 1922 in Braeside, Ontario. After attending Arnprior District High School in Arnprior, Ontario, Phillips went to work for Gillies Lumber Mill in Braeside, Ontario in 1938. On August 14, 1940, Phillips joined the Lanark & Renfrew Scottish Regiment as a Private (C 416548). On July 9, 1941, he received his discharge papers and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) as a Leading Aircraftman-Mechanic (LAC, CAN R111651) July 17, 1941. During this time, he received the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal and the Maple Leaf Medal for severing overseas. Phillips was honourably released from duty on October 3, 1945.

After the war, Phillips worked for Ontario Hydro at Stewartville Dam. In 1947, he relocated to Sudbury, Ontario for a position at the International Nickel Company (Inco). Phillips was employed in the Electric Motor Shop and Winding Room section of Inco for approximately ten years.

On March 27, 1948, Donald Phillips married Charlotte Vance (1923-1979) at the Anglican Church in Arnprior, Ontario. The Phillips family returned to Arnprior around 1957 where Donald Phillips started his own company called 'Phillips Electric Motor Service.'
