In Loving Memory of Arvo Paulamaki, 86 years who passed away on Sunday, April 12, 2020 at Extendicare York. Beloved husband of Anneli Paulamaki (nee Piri). Loving father of Anna-Leena Thrush (Larry), Pirkko Paulamaki, Marja Paulamaki (Dale) and Helena Paulamaki-Desjardins (Todd). Cherished grandfather of Larry Jr., Eevaleena, Mirkka, Robert, Bevin, Helena, Joshua, Zachary and great grandfather of Ethan, Ivy, Violet, Iris, Madelyn, Mason, Rowan, Atley and Henry. Born in Finland, Arvo is predeceased by his parents Urho and Aino (nee Salmi) Paulamaki as well as his siblings Jaakko, Anna-Liisa and Sinikka. Dear brother of Pirkko of Finland. Arvo was a self-made man with a true sole of a Fin, filled with SISU. That strength and determination will be carried on through his family. Arvo was a top diamond driller for INCO, but his true passion was carpentry. He built every home he owned for his family, which he loved so deeply. Arvo was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten. Due to the social gathering restrictions at this time, a Celebration of Arvo’s Life will be held at a later date.
