It is with great sadness that we announce Paul’s passing on Saturday, November 29th in the Palliative Care Unit of NRGH after a stroke.

Paul will be forever remembered by his brothers, Peter (Ella), Maurice (Shirley); sisters, Helen (Bernie) Fitzpatrick and Sylvia (Barry) Shewchuk. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Dora and his baby sister, Phylis.

Paul was a loving husband who cherished his family. He truly enjoyed his many vacations to Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Hawaii. Paul valued his “island” family. Those who knew Paul will remember him for his positive attitude and his love of people. He loved gardening, walking, and coffee with his friends at MacDonald’s. Paul enjoyed his membership in the Elks as well as the many friends he made at bowling.
