Paul grew up in Pugwash Nova Scotia. He served in the Merchant Marines and went on to join the Canadian Air Force in which he served until 1972. He then went to the Dew Line until his retirement in 1988. He spent several years in pursuit of the mighty salmon on his Commercial fish boat Clara B. He loved his woodworking, building houses, hunting, fishing and traveling from coast to coast in the truck and 5th wheel.
Paul was a hardworking, loving man who delighted in his family and loved to share his stories and knowledge. If you had a question that he couldn’t answer he would do the research to find out. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
We would like to thank all the wonderful staff at Cumberland Lodge who made dad feel at home and took excellent care of him. For those wishing, donations in Paul’s memory to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
A gathering of family and friends in celebration of Paul’s life will take place on Saturday, February 1st at 10:00AM from Comox Valley Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road.
