Paul was a devoted employee of CP Rail for 40+ years and the local U.T.U. as treasurer for 20 years. Paul was an avid golfer and member of the Smiths Falls Golf & Country Club for 50 years, during which he also served on its Board of Directors. Paul was a devoted Ottawa Senators fan and season ticket holder before becoming a snowbird. Paul and Susan spent 17 wonderful winters in Florida where wonderful friendships were made. Paul loved his evenings at the card table and especially enjoyed his past 1 ½ years living at the hotel (Settlers Square). The family wish to thank all of Paul’s RPNs and PSWs who became good friends to us.
