Clifford Daniel Moses Paul

December 22, 1964 - May 21, 2013

Tribute

Pah-Hee-Keh-Luh (translates to Raven),


The brightest light in any room, you could follow the laughter to find Cliff shining; to find a man who shared his levity, humour, warmth, integrity and generosity with all. Whether you knew Cliff for a moment or a lifetime, he treated everyone with a respect and openness rarely found and never forgotten. Cliff loved all things Tla’amin. He took great pride in cultural teachings and was an advocate for the preservation of the Tla’amin language. He dedicated his life to serving the needs of the off-reserve Tla’amin citizens, and to those less fortunate that he worked on behalf of for the City of Vancouver and BC Housing. Cliff practised, spoke and promoted Ay a juth um (our language) and found great pleasure spending time with First Nation elders. Eternal funny man, Cliff was a keen observer of humanity and used his comedy to reflect on both the tragic and comedic aspects of life.

Predeceased by his father Willie Dave Paul and his sisters Sharon and Jane, Cliff is survived by his mother Elsie Paul, brothers Glen (Pauline) and Walter (Noreen), sisters Jeannie (Frank), Ann, Cathy and Marlane (Tom), nephews Bryce, Tim, Davis, Dillon, Jordan and Cody, and nieces Sally, Serena, Harmony, Nora, Kory, Kylie, Andrya, Kaycee, Kirsten and Torri. Cliff was also a great-uncle to Byron, Bryton, Crystal, Callie, Greydan, Saphire, Derek, Cash, Mila and Delilah.

Cliff will be missed by many Jeh Jehs (relatives) and close friends near and far.

Put a candle in the window, but I feel I've got to move.

Though I'm going, I'll be coming home soon,

'Long as I can see the light.

Pack my bag and let's get moving,

'cause I'm bound to drift a while.

Well I'm gone, you don't have to worry no, no –

'Long as I can see the light.

Guess I've got those old travelling bones,

cause this feeling won't leave me alone.

But I won't be losin' my way, no, no –

'Long as I can see the light.

(John C. Fogerty)
