Paul, Ian

February 27, 1960 - April 5, 2018

Obituary

Ian Charles Paul It is with sadness we announce the sudden passing of Ian Charles Paul on April 5, 2018. Ian is lovingly remembered by his wife Jackie Marjerison; children Logan (Aimee) Paul, Ashley (Jackson) Cormack, Katelin (Steven Wightman) Paul, Shannon Brown, Crystal Brown, Taija McLuckie and Billy Walters; grandchildren Callie and Payton Cormack, Jesse Brown, Landon Welde and Matix Welde; mother Shirley Paul; brothers Kevin (Kimberly MacKenzie) Paul, Laird (Judy) Paul and Kerry (Hilary) Paul; nieces Elizabeth Page, Carleigh Paul and Bridget Paul; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and mother of his children Kathy Paul. He was predeceased by his father Charles Paul. Ian was born in Sudbury, Ontario, on February 27, 1960. He grew up in many different cities in Ontario but lived for his summers at his grandparents’ farm in Powassan, Ontario. Ian felt most at home at the farm cutting hay, doing chores and especially driving the Farmall tractor. He started his papermaking career in 1978 at the paper mill in Kenora, Ontario, and his career took him west to Mackenzie, Port Alberni, Howe Sound and Powell River. Ian had a passion for life and lived it to the fullest. He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson Super Glide motorcycle, hunting, fishing and collecting Farmall tractor memorabilia, but truly the most important thing in Ian’s life was his family. He married the love of his life, Jackie, and the years they spent together were some of his happiest. Ian’s personality was larger than life; there wasn’t anyone Ian didn’t know, and everyone knew him. He was a thoughtful and considerate man who was well respected by his coworkers and the greater community. He was kind, humble, approachable and non-judgemental, and always ready to make others laugh by teasing and pulling pranks. There are simply not enough words to describe how amazing Ian was. The world is much richer for having had Ian and much sadder for losing him. He was easy to love and lived his life with gusto and no need for regrets. There will be a celebration of life at 1 pm on Saturday, April 14, at Dwight Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Association of Canada or a charity of your choice.

My deepest sympathy to the Family, Ian was a wonderful man and will be missed by all who knew him

From: Peter MacDonald
Relation: co-worker

I was very sorry to hear of Ian’s passing. We spent 5 years trying to make paper machines run better in Powell River. Ian was a prince of a man who only had one way of doing things. Straight ahead with a smile on his face. His work ethic was unmatched and the respect he had from everyone who worked with him was well deserved. I was lucky to have known him. We are worse off without him.

From: Juha Jarvinen
Relation: Friend and co-worker

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and friends that Ian left behind. His passing has deeply impacted many of us that learned to respect him as a friend and a co-worker.
