PHILLIPS_Lee Evens, passed away on August 7, 2008 at the age of 61 following a brave journey with cancer. Lee was born September 13, 1946 in Vancouver, BC. Lee met Doreen, the love of his life, during high school in Williams Lake, BC and married July 5, 1969. Shortly after starting his family, he moved to Calgary, AB. Lee was a master wood craftsmen and could be found tinkering around the house or working on his collection of automobiles, trailers and campers.
