Paul was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2005 and went through radiation that put him into remission for 11 years. In that time he continued his charity work and helped a lot of people with The Brain Tumor foundation of Canada. Paul was active in the Royal Canadian Legion in St.Catharines ON, helping out at fish fries and poppy sales for Remembrance Day. There was a special family in our lives, the Stevens. They were always there for us and Paul considered their daughter Sarah, who grew up with Zachery, his own. Unfortunately, the tumor returned and could not be stopped.

Impressive grateful gentleman
Posted by Al Humphreys (Ride to Conquer Cancer donor) On Sunday, January 14, 2018
I met Paul only briefly once, after making a cash donation to his Ride to Conquer Cancer fund in St. Cathrines any years ago. He personally hand-delivered a thank-you photo of himself in full gear after the Ride, and we talked of his struggles with the tumour and of his resolve to beat it. Rest in Peace ... Our world in St. Catharines is a better place because you chose to make it so.
