Paul Antrobus
July 5, 1935 – August 12, 2015
Paul died shortly after his 80th birthday. The birthday party was celebrated in Wascana Park, with 15 family members present. He said it was the best birthday ever. He was born in Camrose, AB, the son of Rev. Fred Antrobus and Margaret Simmons Antrobus. He graduated from high school in Prince Rupert, BC, earned his BA from Brandon College in 1959, BD from McMaster University in 1962 and his PhD in Psychology from the University of Waterloo in 1973. At Brandon College, he met Kay Pue. They married in 1959. Together they spent five years in India as missionaries with the Canadian Baptist Foreign Mission Board, returning to Canada in 1968. He joined the faculty of Luther College, University of Regina in 1973, retiring in 2005. Since then he has taught several courses for the Life Long Learning Centre, right up until June of 2015. Paul and Kay spent an academic year in China teaching English and Paul also taught Psychology. Paul was president of the Saskatchewan Psychological Association and oversaw the negotiations to set up registration. He was president of the Regina Jazz Society, a member of the Regina Ski Club and sang in the Barbershop Chorus. He loved the outdoors, spending summers at the cottage, canoeing, wind surfing and hiking. Spring and fall, Paul and Kay camped around Saskatchewan and in the mountains. In the winter, he downhill and cross country skied. He was also an avid gardener. In 2005, he fell off a ladder, suffering a spinal cord injury which left him a quadriplegic, breathing with a ventilator. The staff of Wascana Rehab became like family, and are to be commended for their care and for enabling him to continue teaching. He was dearly loved by his family and is survived by his wife Kay of 56 years; his children Karen (Richard) of Canmore, AB, Carol (Clark) of Winnipeg, MB and Kevin (Leanne) of Regina; his beloved grandchildren Mason, Corrina, Zoe, Tessa, and Alaia; his sister Lois of Ft Qu'Appelle and brother John (Suzy) of New York; and several nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service will be held in October. Gifts towards a scholarship in Paul's memory may be made to Luther College, University of Regina, 3737 Wascana Parkway, Regina, SK S4S 0A2, noting Antrobus Scholarship.
