Nephews Hayden, Gavin, Austin, Chase, Myles and Niece Devyn. Grandparents Bob and Wilma Sturgeon of Salmon Arm, and Partner Shannon and her children Brian, Wyatt and Bella.
Paul always had a welcoming smile and cheerful outlook on life and will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate to have known him and to crossed paths with him.
Whenever Paul had a chance he would be would call family and friends to play golf. He loved to play Bingo Bango Bongo for quarters and bragging rights. The driving range was always a contest.
Paul developed a lifelong friendship with his school friends in Calgary. Paul spent many happy hours playing Dungeon’s & Dragons and Catan with them. He kept in contact with Sheldon, Anthony and Andrew and when working in Calgary he would stay in contact and visit them often.
Paul was employed by Tru-Line Surveying which did work for both CPRail and CNRail. Under the mentorship of Greg, Paul honed his survey skills as a dedicated proficient surveyor. Paul could be found surveying CPRail tracks, switches, bridges and tunnels from BC to Ontario. He was well respected within the CP Rail community for his thoroughness and dedication to his profession. One of the most proudest days of his Dad’s life was when on a CPRail job site, Jerry was introduced as Paul’s Dad. The mantel of excellence and respect was passed on to his son. He truly loved his job.
