He is survived by his wife Jane, sons Ron (Shirley) of Brantford, Todd of Toronto and Craig of North Bay. He was the proud grandfather of Courtney Perrin (Joe) and Joe and Katie Desourdie of Brantford. Brother-in-law of Nina Feeney (Joe) of Mississauga and Bill Peer (Greg) of Vancouver. Also survived by niece Tasha Feeney and nephew Justin Feeney and many cousins. He has had the good fortune of some great friends in his life also. Paul was born in Barrie and worked for Texaco (later Imperial Oil) his entire working career. He was a member of the Nipissing Masonic Lodge #420 and a proud Shrine Klown known as “Oilkan” for many years while he was able.

Heartfelt thanks to our extraordinary doctor – Richard Trenker for his care and support.
