    Jackie,
    Please accept our sincere condolences.

    Rhonda & I enjoyed spending time with you and Paul at the Canerector AGM’s.
    Paul was the first one I met when Canerector bought Tornado, and he provided lots of aid and discussion during the transition. Later, once we shared an office location, he was always ready with a story or quip about life.

    It is with great sadness that we hear of Paul’s passing. Our time spent together at meetings with yourself and Paul were delightful. We will always remember the both of you and will cherish those memories.
    There was no one better to share a game of golf with and a cocktail or two afterwards.
    As tough as he came across when I first met him, I immediately saw right through it and knew that he was just a teddy bear deep down.
    Fore now my friend…..

  13. Jackie and family,
    We were honored to share your tribute to Paul.
    I was looking through GM pics and found a number of the two of you.
    I do not have your email address so I thought… you,.. when, the time is right, can relate to us if you would like the pics.
    God bless you and comfort you in this very difficult time, when the reality of Paul’s absence sets in….and you find a new path of happiness with the ones who loved him and share memories.

  14. Dear Robert’s Family. I am so sorry for the loss of father and husband Paul. Many years ago in the early/mid 1980s I would babysit for you in Okotoks. That was my first encounter with Paul, which led to many discussions about our joint passion of soccer. He was kind enough to bring me to the Callies soccer club as a 17 year and give me a chance to play with a awesome group of players. I was very sad to hear of the passing of Paul as he was always a kind man who always remembered me when we saw each other by chance since those days. Please accept my sincere condolences, I know Paul will be missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
    Chris Hall
