|Obituary of Philip Casacove, 1976|
Philip is my husband’s maternal uncle, being an elder brother of his mother Ann. He passed away thirty-seven years ago tomorrow (December 16).
Philip was the third child of George and Polly (Poznekoff) Cazakoff, Doukhobor immigrants who left Russia in 1899. He changed his surname from Cazakoff to Casacove in the summer of 1948.
Philip married twice and had children by both unions. He was survived by his (second) wife Mary and their daughters Donna and Elizabeth.
