As an avid fan of hockey Paul enjoyed playing as a youth and was a coach for the Peterborough Hockey Club. He was a lifelong golfer and could be found on the greens until his recent health decline. He enjoyed the companionship of his Labrador Retrievers, Jodi and Meagan, but above all he was proud of and devoted to his family.
