Paul Macdonald passed away suddenly near his home in Osoyoos, British Columbia on the morning of June 22, 2017 after a short battle with cancer.
Born in London, Ontario, Paul travelled across Canada as a boy with his family, first to Calgary, Alberta, before settling in North Vancouver, British Columbia. There, Paul became a local business owner and member of the North Shore Executives Association, and a passionate coach and volunteer with the North Shore Girls Soccer Club. True to his Scottish roots, few things surpassed Paul's love of golf. Upon early retirement, Paul relocated to Osoyoos to spend his best days golfing and consuming novels in the sun, by the lake. Braving the cold only to visit his family, Paul's winters were spent in Mexico on the course and lounging poolside.
Paul was the father to Nicole and Melissa who he shared with his former wife Lorraine, brother to Craig and Beth, son to Doug and Virginia, and friend to countless more.
His family sends their deepest gratitude to those who supported him through thick and thin. A simple man, Paul asked that no special measures be taken upon his death.
