Philippe Mcguire

Philippe Mcguire 400

December 3, 1955 - November 20, 2021

Dear friends,

 Philippe Mcguire, a beloved member of the Fellowship of Friends, completed his task at 5:55 a.m. (Paris time) today, November 20, after suffering from a long-term illness.

 Philippe was born on December 3, 1955, and would have been 66 on his next birthday. He joined the school in Portland, Oregon, in August 1975. During his decades in the school, Philippe lived in Carmel, San Francisco, Sacramento, Washington, D.C., Apollo, and in recent years, in Paris. His dedication to our school and his profound generosity were hallmarks of his nature.

 Philippe was accompanied all night by close friends in the school, who held his hand as he lay dying. Birdsong was heard outside his room in the early dawn.

 On behalf of all who knew you, we thank thee.

In loving presence,
Rowena Taylor
for the Elysian Society


Do you see O my brothers and sisters? It is not chaos or death,
it is form, union, plan, it is eternal life, it is happiness.
