Paul Leeming Obituary
TIVERTON - Paul Leeming, 69, of Tiverton, RI, passed away on Monday, April 30, 2018. After courageously weathering an amazing storm, he peacefully surfed out on his last wave at Newport Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.
Known to most as "Saul", he was born in New Bedford, MA on May 2, 1948 to the late Albert Leeming and Helen (Murdock) Leeming.
He is survived by his children, Justin, Bethany, and Alison (Rob), and his grandsons, Zachary and Robby. He also leaves his brothers Robert (Sharon) and Greg, as well as his Aunt Frances Cairns.
Saul was a Navy veteran and lifelong commercial fisherman.
Everything was "fine as kind" when he was on the water or with his family, especially his grandsons. In addition to his passion for music, nature and surfing, he enjoyed cooking, sailing, and working with his hands. His legacy will live on among his family, friends, fellow fishermen, and surfers.
In accordance with Saul's wishes, his ashes will be placed at sea, beyond the Sakonnet Lighthouse. A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers or donations, please remember him by showing kindness to others.
