THOMAS (TOM) INGLIS PAUL Born June 10, 1930 to Agnes and Richard Paul, died peacefully with family on August 3, 2014. Tom graduated from McGill University. He and identical twin brother Richard spent summers in Esquimalt, BC, in officer training with the Canadian Navy Reserve. At McGill Tom met his first love, Marjorie Jean Fisher, who he later married. Tom and Marjorie Jean had a son Douglas and daughter Beverley. The family moved to Toronto where Tom earned his RIA designation and excelled in an accounting career. Sadly Marjorie Jean passed away at too early an age. Tom was twice blessed in life. He met and married the second love of his life, Marjorie Morgan whom he spent the rest of his life with. Tom suffered a debilitating stroke 3 years ago which resulted in his residence at True Davidson Nursing Home. There, in addition to family members, Tom was looked after by caring Nurses Sonia and Xian, as well as loving caregivers Jeanette, Nida and Joel. Tom was a gentle, stoic man, never complaining, always with a memorable smile for everyone. He had an intelligent humour, a genuine curiosity and a generous ear for others that allowed him meaningful, lasting friendships with a wide variety of friends and family. Surviving Tom is his wife Marjorie Paul (nee Morgan), brother Richard Paul, son Douglas Paul (wife Elizabeth, sons Christopher, Jeffrey and Steven), daughter Beverley Stephenson (husband Don, son William and twin daughters Amy and Dana), step-daughter Lee Purves (husband Steve, son Christopher, daughters Stephanie and Tara Lee) and step-son Paul Morgan (wife Ann, sons William and Cameron). Tom loved sailing, skiing, dogs and tinkering. He loved his family and most of all he loved Marjories'. Visitation will take place on Monday, August 11, 2014 from 2 - 4 and 7 - 9 p.m. and a memorial service will take place on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 11 a.m., at the Highland Funeral Home (3280 Sheppard Ave. E.). Donations in memory of Tom may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
