Paul passed away October 14, 2015 at the 100 Mile Hospital after a lengthy battle with cancer. He is survived by daughters Carol Ann (Gary), Laurie (Gordie), grandchildren Sarah (Brad), Paul (Crystal), Steven (Jessica), and Shannon; great-grandchildren Linden, Lena, Abigail and Greyson, brother Charlie (Geri) and sister Bette. Sadly, Paul was pre-deceased by his wife of nearly 60 years, Doris in 2013, and their son Douglas in 1981.
Paul joined the Canadian Army and served during the Korean Conflict. He proudly marched in
100 Miles’ Remembrance Day Parade until his health failed. Not long after his discharge from the Army he became a dedicated member of the Local 97 Ironworkers Union and worked all over Western Canada until his retirement.
During his retirement in 100 Mile he was a volunteer at the Lone Butte Fire Department, helped to build the new Army cadet building, volunteered at the 99 Mile Ski Hill, helped construct the Centennial Park playground and was a general community booster. Paul belonged to the Métis Nation and along with a good friend taught drum-making skills to youth in the
100 Mile area.
Paul was generous to his family, friends and community and will be greatly missed.
