    Paul was a kind and gentle soul who always remained very loyal to those whom he loved. He never spoke an ill word of anyone. He was a wonderful brother in law who allowed me to live at his house while I was attending college. He helped me immensely with my business plan for my finals as he was a whiz at Autocad and didn’t bat an eye when I was timid to call upon him for his expertise. I know he took many people under his wing and showed them how to get on the job skills at the Mill as an electronic draftsperson. Without his phenomenal knowledge and patience some people told me they never would have hung in there. Paul was a good man who reminded me of John Goodman because of his genuine nature and smile. I fondly remember going to the Red River Ex and seeing great concerts with you and Alice and wonderful dinners in our favorite places.
    Thank you for being soooo extra special and kind to me Paul. You became a part of my little family and I love you forever my bros. Till we meet again!

    Randy and Patti Papuschuk when we lived on Eveline Street and Paul lived in the parental home on Grain. The board games we played , golfing at SGCC , just hanging out the laugher … such fond memories of our younger days. You and your family were very fond memories from years ago.Hope we see each other on the other side. You were such a kind soul and I smile at the memories we made. Heaven has you now.

    My sincere condolences to Paul’s family. I met Paul about 6 years ago when my elderly mom became a resident at Tudor. Paul immediately treated my mom with kindness and became the only true friend she had. I looked forward to seeing Paul and talking with him each opportunity I had. His infections smile and kind demeanor along with his joking nature made every visit and chat with him special. Paul will be missed by many and I know I will miss seeing him at Tudor. Rest in peace and thank you Paul for being the kind person you are.

    My deepest condolences to Alice & Paul’s family. I got to know Paul while working
    At Gerdau MRM. He was a good friend, always kind, never heard him complaining.
    (Psalm 139:16 All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.) This is hard to accept sometimes. May you rest in peace.

    Alice, Allen and Bruce.. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  10. Bill Shymanski

    Little did I know as a summer student at Manitoba Rolling Mills that I would be working with Paul for the next 17 years. He was always kindly and patient with the “new guy” and I grew to greatly respect his meticulous attention to detail and dedication to his work. Also,a great sense of humor and never a harsh word for anyone. My condolences to his family and friends.

  11. Alan Critchley

    I was shocked when I read of the passing of Paul, my deepest sympathies to Alice.
    Paul worked with me for nearly 20 years at MRM and although I was his “boss” for all those years we became good friends. We often played golf together after work in Selkirk with an occasional visit to Pine Ridge. Most Sundays we shared Mass at Notre Dame RC church.
    My prayers are with you Alice and all Paul’s family

  12. Alan Heartfield

    I too was shocked to learn from Bill Shymanski about Paul’s passing. When I moved to Manitoba at 1982 Bill and Paul were the first people I met when I walked in the maintenance offices at MRM. We worked very closely for the next 8 years and Paul was always unfazed at whatever was thrown his way and did his work calmly and competently. An oasis in a sea of entropy. His cheery smile is now a great loss to Selkirk. Cheryl and I extend our sympathies to Alice.
