Obituary for Phillip Chubb
Dr. Philip David Chubb
January, 1940 – November, 2016
Chubb, Dr. Philip David – It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of David Chubb on November 29th, 2016.
Born in Toronto, David was the sole child of Philip and Winnifred Chubb. After living in both Canada and the United States, the family eventually settled in Whitby, Ontario. David received his medical degrees at the University of Toronto specializing in Ophthalmology. The lure of the West Coast, however, proved too great. Settling in West Vancouver allowed David to pursue his love for the outdoors that BC afforded–whether it was fly fishing, camping and skiing, or latterly, golfing and gardening. Dedicated to his professional journal clubs, he had an enthusiasm for learning. His love for his profession and patients of 46 years left an indelible mark. He will be sorely missed.
David was the loving husband of Carol. Survived by his son Craig (Susie) Chubb and daughter Karin (David) Stegemann. He was grandfather to six granddaughters: Cameron, Aidan, Bryn (Chubb), and Teagan, Avery and Carys (Stegemann). He will also be very sadly missed by his step-children (Carol’s children) Amy, John, and Alison (Reynolds).
A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, March 1 at 3PM at St. David’s United Church, West Vancouver. As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made in memory of Dr. David Chubb to The Lions Gate Hospital Foundation or to the International Federation of Animal Welfare (IFAW).
