He was predeceased by his father Ned in 1962, and his brother Bob in 1979. He was one of the community's most beloved residents. Paul embodied all the good qualities that are to be found in a loving husband, father, brother, son and uncle.

His special friends, who were dear to his heart, Bernard Peddle and Bob Hilliard; also many other friends and relatives that touched him throughout his very special life. Our loved one is not gone, he lives forever in the lives of his children, family and the many people he touched in his short life. Funeral took place on Tuesday, January 30, 2001 from St. Edward's Roman Catholic Church, Kelligrews. In lieu of flowers donations were made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
THE WHEEL OF LIFE When we have passed the test we were sent to Earth to learn, we are allowed to graduate. We are allowed to shed our body, which imprisons our soul the way a cocoon encloses the future butterfly, and when the time is right we can let go of it. Then we will be free of pain, free of tears, free of worry...free as a beautiful butterfly returning home to God...which is a place where we are never alone, where we continue to grow and to sing and to dance, where we are with those we loved and we are surrounded with more love than we can ever imagine.
