It is with great sorrow his family announces his sudden passing on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at the age of 65 years. Beloved husband for 45 years to Danielle. Predeceased by his dear parents Henri and Mary. Loving father of Steve (Cathy) and Ivan (Hollie). Cherished grandfather of Skyler, Hunter, Sierra (Alex), Destini (Andrew) and Dylan. Adored great grandfather to Madison and Brynlee. Deeply missed by his siblings Shirley (Joe predeceased), Raymond (predeceased) (Louise), Suzanne (predeceased) (Jean Guy), Maurice (predeceased), Diane (Denis predeceased), Joan (predeceased), Fern (predeceased) and Donald. Paul will be greatly missed by his many brothers and sisters in law, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Paul built many houses in his life, but was happiest in the “home” he built for his family. He enjoyed spending time with his grandkids exploring on hikes, going to camp, listening to 60’s music and oldies country. He had a great sense of humour, telling fascinating stories, but you could tell by the look in his eye when the stretching of the truth was about to commence. No task was too big for Paul to handle, if he was unfamiliar with doing something he had a knack to figure it out, so it was beautifully done. He was an expert in “fine carpentry” with an eye for detail that was impeccable.
As per Paul’s request there will be no visitation or funeral. A Celebration of Paul’s life will be held in the spring.
