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.
