Paul Arthur Adam June 18, 1941 - February 24, 2013
Paul passed away peacefully at St. Michael's Hospice in Burnaby B.C. on Sunday, with his long-time partner, Jean King, and his daughter, Paula Gagne, at his side. Paul is also survived by his son Michael, his grandchildren - Madeline, Soren and Jackson - and his brothers Eddie Mitchell, John Adam and Dennis Adam. Paul fought a long and determined battle against the cancer that eventually took his life. He tackled his illness with profound and remarkable dignity, resilience and courage, never allowing his misfortune to bring him down or to dull his unique sense of humour. He remained to the end a person of strength, humility and generosity. Paul will be sorely missed by Jean, by his family, and by his friends at the Mall, at work, and in the Alcoholics Anonymous community. Our world will be diminished without him, but he will always be in our hearts. At Paul's request, no memorial or service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Paul's name to Alcoholics Anonymous.
