Paul, of Calgary, Alberta passed away on August 27, 2014 at the age of 55 years in the presence of his wife and soul mate, Kerry.
Paul had a strong faith which helped him through a difficult journey at the end of his life. He often expressed his joy and gratefulness for the happiness that he felt in his life. He was the most happy with the simple things. He loved to golf, ski, and garden and of course, watching sports on TV. He found peace being one with nature and through his meditative practice. He treasured his children and family each day and was plentiful in his expressions of love. Paul will be remembered for his love of life, family, fierce spirit and outstanding determination.
Paul is survived by his beloved wife, Kerry Balshaw, his daughter Meghan (John), grandson Nolan, his son Brendan, stepchildren Julian, Morgan, and Althea, and his brothers Hugh (Maggie) and Edmund. He is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
