Since we never had children, Paul thought the world of his nieces and nephews, if their parents posted on Facebook Paul loved seeing photos of them.
Paul was born in Bodman, SK and moved to Port Alberni with his family when he was 3 months old. He worked for Coulson & Prescott as a yarding engineer until he was injured at work. He then worked for Swartz Produce Company, Nelson Roofing and last at Tom’s Bros. Moving & Storage where he hurt his back and after surgery was put on disability.
Paul had many friends both in Canada and in Yuma AZ. He enjoyed smoking fish, and dehydrating vegetables, fruits and making jerky and pepperoni. Picking berries and bringing them home for Mickey to make jam, jellies and relishes to give to friends. Paul started gardening in the last couple of years and loved it.
