He always loved greeting visitors to Victoria and familiar faces.

Paul loved his wife and family deeply. He was supportive, funny and caring. He accepted everyone that was introduced to him and made them feel part of his family. Paul loved spending time going to the casino and bingo with Yolande. They enjoyed going for drives, playing cards and board games and having long talks about adventures and life together.

We love you so much Paul, forever and always. Sleep now, and rest without pain. We will take care of each other from here.
