Philip Arthur Arsenault 'Mr. Phil', 68, of Synton passed away Monday, May 1, 2017 at the Moncton Hospital.
Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late Arthur Arsenault and Marjorie (Barber) Church. He was an industrial and residential painter and he owned and operated 'MR. PHIL' painting for over 25 years. Phil enjoyed hunting and fishing and especially time spent with his friends at the Caledonia Mountain camp. He loved being outdoors, walking and most of all being with his family - preparing meals for them with his pies for dessert.

Besides his parents he is predeceased by his step-dad Hugh Church.
