Glenn Stuart Paul

-

Glenn Stuart Paul aged 59 of Edmonton, Alberta passed away on March 27, 2016 in Edmonton after a courageous fight against esophageal cancer. Glenn’s optimism, positivity, quick wit and humour were with him throughout the fight.

Glenn was born on January 29, 1957 in Edmonton, Alberta to Keith and Irene Paul. He was the fourth of six rambunctious children. Glenn’s love of the outdoors started early growing up on the family farm playing with his siblings and the numerous animals that the family had. At a young age, Glenn went to work in the Arctic driving truck for the same company his father worked for. After moving back to Edmonton when he was 17, he met the love of his life, Joscelyn, whom he met through mutual acquaintances. In April of 1977 Glenn and Joscelyn were married in Calgary, Alberta and welcomed three daughters into their lives. Glenn had a passion for being outdoors and enjoyed golfing, riding quads, camping, fishing and cruising around on one of his motorbikes. His golf tips and advice were always free but came with a stroke limit. He was always willing to help those in need and many he knew welcomed his unlimited knowledge of all things mechanical and truck related. Glenn’s fondest memories were of cutting through the bush on his quad. He enjoyed travelling and spending time with his family and friends.

Glenn is survived by his wife of almost 39 years, Joscelyn (Young) Paul; children Calinda (Rob) McEwen, Christine (Steve) McDowell, Carla (Eric Skjolden); grandchildren Avery, Robert, Caitlin, Zachary, Bentley and Emmett; siblings Bryan (Carol), Dianne (Ted), Bruce (LaShaun), and Don (Patti) along with numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. Glenn’s father Keith, mother Irene and his brother Ken predeceased him.

A visitation will take place on Thursday March 31, 2016 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at Serenity Funeral Service, 5311, 91 Street, Edmonton AB.

A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, April 1, 2016 at 11:00 am at Millwoods Moravian Church, 2304-38 Street, Edmonton, AB. Interment to follow at South Haven Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made in Glenn’s name to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton via albertacancer.ca. The Paul family would like to thank the staff at the Cross Cancer Institute, most notably Dr. Brock Debenham for his endless help in Glenn’s fight, along with all of the staff at the Grey Nuns Hospital.

Keith and Sharon Adams

Jo,
We are so sorry to hear about Glenn’s passing. Although we did not know the both of you for very long we have very good memories from the bike trip we did last year. Glenn called Keith a couple of times in the last few months and we had really hoped and prayed that he could beat this thing. Please accept our deepest sympathy to you and your family.

It has been our pleasure to be neighbours of Glenn and Joscelyn’s for more than twenty-two years. In that time we have enjoyed many conversations over the fence, usually while Glenn and Byron were out back barbequing or I was working in my garden.

Glenn was always patience and understanding when our boys would send a hockey puck up onto their garage roof even after we built a ten-foot “protection” wall. This past summer we finally were able to take the opportunity to host Glenn and Joscelyn at our campsite in Rocky Mountain House. Nothing like having to get out of town, away from the demands of the city life, to properly visit with your neighbour. We are so very glad that we did.

We’ll miss Glenn’s happy demeanour and easy conversation. Out thoughts and prayers are with you Joscelyn, your girls and all your grandchildren.

Byron, Noel, Eric & Sean

I met Glenn when he was just 17. Shortly after, I met Jo. I was at their wedding and remember when their kids were born. As often happens, we didn’t see each other after I moved to Ontario but I’m so very glad I got to visit when I was home at Christmas. I’ll miss you my friend.

Glenn, Al Prosco and I were golfing at Broadmore many yrs ago and Glenn was teeing off on the par 4 along Broadmore Blvd. His tee shot hits the bus stop, ricochets into traffic, hits a cars tire and back onto the fairway. Al and I are laughing and he just turns and says without a smile “I’d like to see you guys to that” That’s not really a quote as the language was more colourful
