Special thanks to Paul’s doctor, Dr. Pepe, the Cheshire, Saint Elizabeth, and VON Homecare teams and to Paul’s neighbour and friend Lesley. Paul faced numerous health challenges throughout his life but in spite of the medical prognosis, Paul surpassed all expectations. Paul was able to walk with braces, drive a vehicle, complete a college diploma program at St. Clair College (Windsor), working in both the insurance and banking sectors. Paul loved to volunteer. As a volunteer driver, Paul regularly transported cancer patients for medical treatment. Over the last ten years, the continuous miracles in Paul’s life made the power of Jesus in his life undeniable.
Paul’s contagious smile and hearty laughter made Paul extra special to those who knew him. He loved a good rack of ribs. Originally born on the farm outside Mount Forest, Paul embraced city living in Brampton, Kitchener, Windsor and London. Paul enjoyed music and theatre, attending church, and family get togethers. Paul will be sorely missed.
A private funeral for the family will be held at the gravesite.
A celebration of Paul’s life with be held at a later date, to accommodate out of country family members.
Memorial donations will be graciously accepted by Cheshire Independent Living. Saint Elizabeth, and University Hospital.
