David, Sincere condolences on the loss of your Dad.
Paul and I grew up together in Rideau Park, Calgary, less than a block apart. A small group of us
played street hockey by the hour in front of his house.
He was a good friend and a good man.

As an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Thunder Bay, Paul was instrumental in providing assistance to those in need in Thunder Bay, particularly several children's’ services.
His friendship, humour and genuine caring nature will be missed by all of us.

David, I just heard about your father. I am so sorry. I will always remember him as a kind, and soft-spoken man. He was always good to me and quick witted, laughing easily at us being young kids. David, you are in our thoughts. Brian, Natasha and the girls, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
