We are heartbroken to share the passing of Philip Ekstrom Sr. A resident of Candlewood Knolls for over 40 years, Grandpa Phil leaves behind his son Philip Jr. and wife Jamie, his daughter Linda and husband Steve, as well his grandsons Taylor, Cory, and Jacob. His sister, Lynne and his nieces, nephews and their families share in the loss.  Grandpa Phil joined his beloved wife, Joyce in heaven on September 14th, the day of their wedding anniversary. 


We will all miss Grandpa Phil’s smile, warmth & kindness. Grandpa Phil’s restless desire to help & do for others will serve as his enduring legacy. May we all strive to live with the same selflessness & kindness with which Grandpa Phil taught us. 


In Grandpa Phil’s memory, the family kindly requests donations be made to either Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Services (www.rvnahealth.org/donate) or The Arc Westchester, please be sure to reference Phil Ekstrom Sr. (www.arcwestchester.org/donate-memorial).


A memorial & celebration of life will be held at the Candlewood Knolls Clubhouse (One Lakeshore North, New Fairfield, CT) on Saturday, October 23rd (3pm).
