February 2, 1928 - November 11, 2013
Paul passed away peacefully on Remembrance Day with his family by his side. He was predeceased by brothers William, Steve, and John, daughter Joan, first wife Ena and his loving partner Margaret. He is survived by children Dawn (Al), Zara (Bruce) and Dave (Keltie), sisters Ann, Millie, and Kay, 6 grandchildren, 7 great-grand children and several nieces and nephews. Born in Czechoslovakia, his family moved to Rimbey AB in 1934 and then on to Creston. Paul served in the Navy during WWII before marrying. They raised their family in Creston where he was a successful businessman and a founding member of many clubs and charities. A gifted, competitive athlete and avid card player he was tough to beat at any game and represented BC in chess. Moving to Coquitlam in 1972 he sold real estate and until he was 81, built hi-rises with his son Dave. He was a member of the Vancouver Golf Club and the Legion. A great man with a huge heart he was happy, kind, generous, fair and loyal. He worked and played hard. With his million dollar smile, sense of humour, charm and dance moves he was the life of the party and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. There will be a Celebration of Life Dec. 12th from 2-4 at the Crescent Branch of the RCL at 2643 128th St Surrey. Please feel free to donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in his memory.
